FIRSTWAVE PARENT RESOURCES

Parents:

We’ve got your back!

The teenage years aren’t easy, we’re here to partner with you through them all.

One of our goals is to come alongside you as a mom/dad and help you be a spiritual influence in the life of your child. We want to support you in your very difficult, sometimes daunting, and vital role as a parent.

That’s why we offer helpful resources from a Christian worldview all in one spot for you, as families, to help encourage and equip you in your journey. We’re in this together and committed to be alongside your family!

As always, our FirstWave student ministry staff would love to grab coffee with you and help however we can.

The FirstWave Team

PS – If you know of anyone within The Church at LifePark who would be a good influence in the life of a teenager, please send them here. We’re not looking for perfect volunteers, we’re looking for caring adults who love and follow Jesus and like teenagers.
