Building Strong Families
Faith@Home was created to help families become intentional about building a God-honoring home one step at a time. Whatever life stage you may find yourself in, the home is going to be the place where most people will spend the majority of their time. To that point, we believe that God designed the home to be the place where primary faith formation in children and adults takes place.
Think about it, the home is the place where you are the most authentic, for better or for worse. You wouldn't give someone the silent treatment at work, you may get fired! You wouldn't kiss someone in a whirlwind of passion at your kid's soccer game, you may get a lawsuit!
But in the home, for better or worse, our authentic and true selves come out and God uses this rich environment to shape our faith formation. That is why, through Faith@Home, we want to equip and inspire you to build a life-long and thriving marriage, introduce your children to Christ and launch your teens as committed believers as you build a God-honoring home. Below are some resources to help you do just that!

A number of things compete for our time, attention, affections and resources during the holiday season. In the blink of an eye, the beauty, spirit and intent of Christmas can be consumed by the clamoring of commercialism and activities. As you think about and plan for the Christmas season, prayerfully consider what you want this season of Advent to be marked by for your family.
7 Triple 1
To know the story of Exodus and Leviticus is to recognize it as our own: God rescues us from our sin and makes us holy. Take what we are learning in the Worship Service and Bible Study Groups home and study the books of Exodus and Leviticus together as a family.
It Starts at Home
For better or worse, the home is the primary context for spiritual formation. We invite you to go through these Bible Study session that include interviews with parents talking about their own doubts and fears as well as powerful teaching to equip and inspire you from Kurt and Olivia Bruner, Gary Thomas, and Matt Chandler.
Technology brings many benefits to our lives. But excessive screen time can create a flat, one-dimensional existence. We were made for the rich, three-dimensional experience of relationship with God and one another. Do you control your devices or are they starting to control you? How about your family? In a culture where everyone seems more “connected” than ever, how do we nurture real connection with the most important people in our lives?
Rekindled at Home
No matter where you are in your marriage, we want to help you take little steps in building a better relationship with your spouse. That is why, as a church, we want to come alongside couples and challenge them to develop a date night habit in order to nurture intimacy and foster a shared vision for your relationship going forward.
Meals at Home
Meals are full of meaning and significance but are also practical. Recent studies reveal that the single most decisive factor among kids who do well in school and avoid risky behaviors is eating meals with the family. Family meals give us a place to belong, a rhythm for health, and a moment of sanity!
Movies at Home
Most kids love watching movies so why not turn a passive activity into an intentional discussion around faith themes? If kids start looking at films through the lens of a Christian perspective, it will not only drive conversation and better relationships, but it will also help them learn and practice discernment with media.
