Parenting

equipping parents for the journey

Our Purpose

Biblical parenting is about raising kids who have a passionate love for God and an unquenchable desire to serve others (Luke 10:27). We are dedicated to equipping and encouraging parents no matter where you are on the incredible adventure of parenting!

Parenting Communities

 

There’s a mystique about the classic American. We love to go it alone. We are famous for being the independent farmer, the lone gunfighter, and the self-made man and woman. But for most things in life, it is better—even critical—that you do them with folks you can count on for help.

 

When raising kids, you would be nuts to go alone. It will be more successful, less stressful, more fun, and less dangerous if you join in with others. The Parenting Program at Stonebriar is all about raising godly kids with the help of others. The Bible calls this “community” and it is essential. New community groups are forming all the time. If you have a specific need or interest and do not see a group for that listed below, please reach out to us through christinec@stonebriar.org or call 469-252-5210.
