Southlake Baptist Church is here to partner with parents in the spiritual growth and development of their kids and teens. We want to offer multiple resources for parents to intentionally engage in the lives of those God has entrusted to them.

One way we want to help continue the conversation beyond Sunday morning is offering parents the summary of what their child or teen talked about at church. This can be a huge benefit for those car rides home when they typically answer the question of what they talked about with an, “I don’t know.” You can find this info in our weekly bulletin made available for you in the worship center.

ParentingOnline_400We also have an Online Parenting Class with a focus on three specific age groups: preschool, kids, and teens. Each month, parents receive two emails that focus on the specific needs and struggles of raising kids. You can subscribe to the mailing list that fits your particular kids’ age by clicking HERE and choosing the applicable newsletter, or check out our archive of blog posts which mirror the emails by following this LINK.

rite_passage_headerWe’re really excited to offer parents of 6th-12th graders a resource designed to engage parents and teens in a significant experience every year. This is called the Rites of Passage Experience. You can get all of the info for this by clicking HERE.

Check out our Parenting Toolbox which includes lots of downloadable resources and videos to help parents along the way.
