We are committed to partnering with parents to help in the spiritual growth and development of their kids. That’s why we are excited to offer this incredible resource to all parents. It’s called the Rites of Passage Experience or ROPE for short. These resources offer a meaningful experience for parents to participate in with their kids for each year all the way from birth to 12th grade.
