Parent Resources

Kids average 40 hours a year in church ministries. They average 3,000 hours a year with their parents. I want to support your efforts as the primary spiritual and moral influence in your child’s life.

My goal is to partner with you to grow children in the knowledge of the Bible and discover who Jesus is and to live a life fully devoted to Him.  To find purpose in our lives and to be used to bless and teach other's about Him.  As a parent of three kids of my own I want to invite you to join this journey with me to grow a generation of kids who live with power, purpose, and possibilities through Jesus.

I also welcome your input as to how I can better equip you as guardians and parents so feel free to contact me at

 if you have any questions or feedback.

 

Blessings,

Heather Lewandowski
Children's Pastor

Books For Kids

Adventure Bible, NIV (history: essential for life) our first recommendation for elementary children’s study Bibles.  It’s full of fun facts, illustrative insights, and fun activities. If you don’t already have a Bible for your child to read, we like this one a lot.

Cooper Kids Adventure Series by Frank Peretti (fiction: adventure) is an adventurous series of 8 Christian fiction books for kids about a family of explorers.  It contains fictional spiritual battles that Peretti is famous for so it might be a little intense for younger kids, but exciting for kids probably 3rd grade and older.

Escape from the Island of Aquarius (The Cooper Kids Adventure Series #2)

The Tombs of Anak (The Cooper Kids Adventure Series #3)
