Milestone Equipping Events are where your needs as parents meet our desire to serve you. We hope that you leave these events empowered and equipped with practical ideas to make faith real at home.
First Steps - Parent Dedication Orientation (birth to 4 years): This event is focused on equipping parents to be the primary faith influencers in their child's life from the very beginning. We focus on helping you understand your role as parents in spiritually leading your family. As we talk through this critical topic, we will also give you a vision for GFC's partnership with families, as well as additional resources to help you lead your child towards faith.
Our next orientation event will be held on January 21, 2018
Faith Conversations (5 to 10 years): This event is designed to stimulate conversations with your kids about Christ. We teach our kids to ride a bike and go over spelling words, but how do we talk with them about the Gospel and recognize when they are ready to respond to it? We will get intentional and practical as we discuss ways to initiate these conversations in your home.
In lieu of Faith Conversations, we are excited to host Expectations vs Reality - Making Sense of Parenting on February 11, 2018
Preparing for Adolescence (11 to 13 years): This event is built to help parents face specific challenges as their child transitions to the middle school years. We will take a look at today's culture and equip you to help develop a faith that sticks in your child's life.

Directions to Adulthood (15-17 years): This event is focused on helping parents to walk with their student through the exciting and scary transition to the college years beyond. Specifically, we hope to practically equip parents to have conversations with their students about how to understand and defend their faith in this critical time.
