YOU are the most important spiritual influence in your child’s life! Our goal is to support and equip you to raise your children according to the guidelines God has laid out in the Bible. Training days, relationship building events, and family volunteer opportunities are just a few ways we can help throughout the year. Have a question, need prayer, encouragement, or to bounce some ideas off someone? Contact Mark Dyck through the church office.
Together for Good | Marriage Conference
May 4–5, 2018
Neil and Sharol Josephson, Executive Directors for Family Life Canada, will be with us to walk couples through this chance to reconnect, re-establish the foundation, and rekindle romance. The workshop provides insights and research to help couples understand more fully what is really going on in our marriage relationships, focusing on the areas of communication, conflict, sex and spirituality. Each session does more than inform, it provides helpful tools to move past the differences and drift to a place of greater closeness and trust. Each session also prioritizes times for couples to process the information together and consider how to apply it in their relationship.

This is an opportunity where you can formally acknowledge your child as God’s gift and dedicate him or her back to God. In doing this, you commit yourself to raise your child in a Christian home to know and trust Jesus Christ. It’s one of those chances you have to put a stake in the ground and say “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” (Joshua 24:15). It’s a commitment your family can look back on and be encouraged by when the going gets rough. Dedications are scheduled into our regular worship services several times during the year.
How to make it happen:
- Pray about your commitment
- Contact Mark Dyck to set up a time to meet.
- Choose from upcoming Child Dedication Sundays and the worship service that works best for your family
- Invite your significant people and don’t forget your camera!
