Family Ministry Resources

All too often parents “delegate” their responsibilities to teach and train their children to the organized programs of the local church. However, we are convinced that the discipling center for children is the home! Moms and Dads are the ones that are to called to …

tell to the coming generation
the glorious deeds of the LORD, and his might,
and the wonders that he has done. (Psalm 78:4)

The children’s ministry of Lebanon Baptist Church exists to glorify God by partnering with and equipping parents to lead children to embrace Jesus as Lord and Savior and pursue God with their whole heart.  
Parents, you are to bring to bear the truth of God on to the hearts and minds of your children throughout every aspect of life. However, the local church is God’s means whereby you will be equipped to more effectively fulfill your role as a parent. As a church family, we want to partner with and equip parents to raise the next generation to love and follow Jesus.

With that in mind, we want to begin highlighting some solid resources available to help families grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Periodically, we will plan to post a list of helpful resources for you and/or your family. These resources will vary from recommended books, articles we’ve read, to websites we’ve found.
