Parents and Families

We believe that faith practiced as a family provides a steadfast base for children and teens.  

We want to equip, empower, and engage families to be the church in the world. We do that by providing opportunities for families to come together to talk about their faith and help all members of the family find a place in their spiritual home.


Plan to join us Friday late afternoon, February 15 through Sunday morning, February 17 at Kanuga for a Family Retreat, with special guests Mark and Lisa Scandrett!  It's a weekend you and your family won't want to miss.

Our youth ministry team invites all middle and high school families (youth and parents) to join us once a month on Wednesday nights at 6:00 PM in All Saint's Hall for dinner and conversation. Faith Talks are gatherings where we sit in fellowship to talk about our faith. We hope to help you remember your purpose, and support you in building a strong foundation here at your spiritual home. Each gathering will include a light dinner ($8), engaging activities, guest speakers, and lots of prayer. Please come! If you have questions, contact Betsy Parkhurst at
