Family Resources

At Community Bible Church, our :NextGen ministry’s vision is to cultivate generations of devoted disciples.  Which means that we not only want to help you make disciples in your home, but we want to help you in your walk with Jesus. We want to equip and support you, the parents, your kids, and students to know and love Jesus. 

 

Family Discipleship

Family Discipleship

We believe as a church that the parent is the primary disciple-maker in the life of their children.  As Dr. Timothy Paul Jones puts it, “The gospel is rehearsed in families and reinforced at church.”

Some of you may not be doing anything right now to disciple your children in the home.  You are not alone.  Truth is most parents aren’t, even though most parents believe it is important and their job.

Why? Two things come up over and over: Time and Training.

God has blessed us with some new time with our families. Now, we realize that posting resources and family devotions online is not “training” but during these times we needed to do something to help you as you minister to your children.

The Gospel Project

The Gospel Project

If your kids have been joining us Sunday morning, they will know about the Gospel Project. It is a 3-year curriculum that traces the story of Jesus from Genesis to Revelations, showing how the whole Bible points to Jesus.

We will provide you resources about the stories we are covering and ways you can use the Gospel Project for your Family Devotions during the week.
