Welcome to Zeal Parents. This ministry exists to glorify God through raising Godly children that would grow up in God’s word and do great exploits in our God given beautiful world.
“And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.” —Deuteronomy 6:6–7
As the adage goes, strong families build strong churches. But more specifically, strong churches are made up of families who build their lives on the Word of God. Parents who commit themselves to faithfully raising their children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord contribute to the overall health of the body, and Grace Community Church has always invested in its families in light of this reality.
To that end, we share the good news that the Bible contains everything parents need to know about raising their children. Indeed, the biblical pattern for parenting is superior to any psychological or pragmatic model. God’s guidelines for parents, set forth in Scripture, are surprisingly straightforward; the Bible is never cryptic or mysterious about raising children. With this in mind, we recognize that retaining these scriptural truths will strengthen families in our church. In Parenting for Life, parents will discover the Bible’s blueprint for raising children in a God-honoring way, from birth to adolescence.
Every moment of life is a teaching opportunity, and God’s Word calls parents to make the most of their time (Deuteronomy 6:7). No curriculum or comprehensive “program” can ensure that parents will never struggle or fail; ultimately, we must depend on God’s grace. But at the same time, there is a mindset we must develop in order to be the kind of parents God wants us to be. Parenting for Life brings together the biblical doctrine and principles that apply to parenting, and presents it in a format that is clear and easy to apply.
It is our prayer that the Lord will continue to use our Parents to raise up a generation of families with a focus on and commitment to the authority of God’s Word, passed on faithfully from generation to generation.
