Nothing is more important in your life than being one of God’s tools to form a human soul. But in the midst of folding laundry, coordinating carpool schedules, and breaking up fights, many parents get lost. Feeling pressure to do everything "right" and raise up "good" children, it's easy to lose sight of our ultimate purpose as parents in the quest for practical tips and guaranteed formulas. Based on his award-winning and best-selling Parenting book, Dr. Paul David Tripp will be streaming a four-session, perspective-changing event to moms and dads around the world. With encouraging and refreshing teaching, Tripp will offer much more than a to-do list. Instead, he will present us with a big-picture view of God's plan for us as parents. But this event is not solely for parents - grandparents, youth ministry leaders, and anyone who knows and loves a parent should attend to be equipped with this life-changing gospel message!
We will have care and activities for birth thru 5th-grade children provided. There will be 4 sessions with discussion time after each. The sessions are on Friday, 9/7, from 6:00-8:30pm, and Saturday, 9/8, from 9:00-11:30am.

What will Dr. Paul David Tripp teach on? Paul will focus on four gospel principles from his book:
1. Calling: Nothing is more important in your life than being one of God’s tools to form a human soul.
2. Identity: If you are not resting as a parent in your identity in Christ, you will look for identity in your children.
3. Authority: One of the foundational heart issues in the life of every child is authority. Teaching and modeling the protective beauty of authority is one of the foundations of good parenting.
4. False Gods: You are parenting a worshiper, so it’s important to remember that what rules your child’s heart will control his behavior.
