Kids & Families
Park Church Family Ministry exists to empower parents to be the primary disciplers of their children.
Park Kids In-Person
We are excited to announce that in February we are reopening Park Kids through the use of pre-registered cohorts. Although classes may not look exactly like they used to, we look forward to the opportunity to serve parents and families in our church in this cherished way.
Learn More & Register
Families must register their children to be assigned to a cohort. The registration deadline for this semester is Wednesday, January 20.

Park Kids at Home
As the majority of our church remains scattered, we want to remind you that discipleship happens in the everyday things of life (Deuteronomy 6:4–9) and that this season of increased time in the home is allowing new opportunities to just that.
We want you to know that you can do this. For many families, you’ve had to do new things or at least shift your daily rhythms. Instead of feeling overwhelmed or frustrated, be encouraged to stick with it, using this as an opportunity to create a foundation of discipleship in the everyday things of life. Below, we have created and curated some resources we hope you find helpful. Use as many or as few of these resources and feel free to reach out if you have any questions!
Elisha and the Army
We learn in this story that God is always with us, even though we can’t see Him. Jesus came to earth so people could see God. God protects us from sin and death when we trust in Jesus.
Worshiping at Home with Kids
First of all, we know that this idea kind of crazy, so here are some thoughts to help!
Engaging at Home with Families
One of the best things you can do for your kid’s development is to read. We recommend having books all around your house so that you are more likely to read. Furthermore, having books that teach them truth is always a sweet win.
As you spend more time with your children, you may find it helpful to read books encouraging you as the primary disciplers of your kids.
Find online resources, media resources, and apps to use with your family. We categorized resources into family (a resource your family can engage in together), parent (a resource directed primarily for parents), and kids (a resource that your kids can engage in with minimal supervision).
