Do you have someone at your church who teaches parenting skills?
If you do, praise God. If you don't, you need someone to teach, encourage and equip parents.
You may want to start with a Parent/Grandparent Appreciation Celebration.
This parent appreciation concert encourages and celebrates the faithfulness of Christian parents and grandparents. Your congregation will enjoy anointed singing, a little humor and a message that will touch the hearts of all who are concerned about raising this generation to be adults who love and serve the Lord. And it is also a great way to build a partnership between parents, pastors and teachers.
