Our desire is that families experience and display the beauty and the fullness of the gospel in their family dynamics and relationships.
THE CHURCH AND PARENTS IN PARTNERSHIP
Dad and Mom have the greatest influence and impact on their own children. The primary privilege of loving, developing and discipling children is given to parents (Deut 6, Ephs 4). The Church is also a great influence of good on the lives of kids and families and carries responsibility as well in developing and discipling children. At Legacy we desire to capitalize on these two strong influences by partnering together. We hope to minister to parents by enriching and strengthening marriages as well as providing tools and resources to continue growing together. We also will provide tools and resources that will help them to grow as parents as they continue to navigate life with their family.
At Legacy, we hope to partner together and celebrate several milestones in your family's life:
- Baby Dedication
- Preparing for Adolescence
- Commitment to Purity
- Rite of Passage
- Graduation from High School
Shared experiences are great for building lasting memories and challenging families to grow in their faith. Some of our past family events have included mission trips (domestic and international), Family Camp, Splash Party and Texas Rangers baseball games.
ALIGNING MINISTRY CALENDARS
We desire to make sure that we are on the same page across ministries and not stretching families too thin because of our planned events. Our hope is to provide effective events while leaving you margin as a family.
Before marriage having wise and godly counsel is very important. At Legacy we provide opportunities for pre-marital counseling through pastors, elders or lay leaders trained in a variety to help prepare you for many of the challenges in marriage.
There is a list of books, web sites, conferences and other ministries that will encourage and help equip you in the area of marriage and parenting on our website. This can be found under the “RESOURCES” tab and the “FAMILY RESOURCES” page or by clicking here.
