Parents at Village Church


Whether you are the parent of a toddler or a teenager, we at VCL understand that you have one of the most important and rewarding tasks anyone could have. We also understand how difficult and demanding it can be at times to raise children, especially in our current culture. While we cannot offer you a “how to” manual with all of the answers, we do offer these following web links and downloads. We believe you will find the information and ideas here helpful to you as you seek to raise your children “to be and to make disciples of Jesus Christ.”

The Spiritual Portfolio

Imagine presenting to your child on their 18th birthday a notebook that contained a visual and written record of their spiritual growth from childhood through their teenage years! Imagine the impact as they become young adults being able to see the evidence of God’s hand on their life from their earliest days.
