There is no greater privilege and responsibility as a parent than nurturing the faith of our children. We are teaching our children—passively or purposefully—every hour of every day about what it means to be a follower of Jesus.  So, first and foremost, we must authentically model discipleship in our daily lives. The greatest influence on our children’s faith is the genuine depth and breadth of seeing their parents live out their faith daily.

When we baptize children at Parkway, we promise to help parents raise them in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.  One of the ways we fulfill this commitment is through our Children’s Christian Education ministries.  We have dedicated teachers who love our children, serve as examples for them, and teach them about God and what it means to be a follower of Jesus.  Our prayer is that through these opportunities children will come to know and love Jesus as their Lord and Savior, and then live out their faith as His disciples in the world with all of their heart, mind, soul, and strength.

If we can help you in your efforts to equip yourself as a parent to nurture the faith of your children, please contact Matthew at


All kids (ages 5 through 5th grade) are invited to come and join the courageous and captivating quest to discover God's love. We will have tons of fun as we sing, play, have snacks, do crafts, and learn all about the love of Jesus. Details and dates will be posted soon.
