CBC Youth & FAmilies

Your family is your greatest ministry!

Whatever state of growth your family is in, we're here to support you.

When God first put human beings on the earth, he created "family." Husband and wife were destined to become Mom and Dad. God's plan for maturing young people in the Lord is still fulfilled best within the home. There, children can see the life that God has for them modeled by their parents. Central Baptist Church is here to support families as they lead the next generation of Christians into a deeper faith.

May Themes

Elementary: Resilience - Get back up when life gets you down!

Sometimes we feel very alone. A friend walks away, a parent seems distant. That can be really upsetting.  This month, we'll help our children cultivate an attitude and character of resilience.  By reminding them that God is always with us, we help them learn that they can trust God no matter what.

Our goal is to have the best resources available to you so you can be the parent that God created you to be. We focus on building biblically-wise children through the study of scripture, but look to learn from any wise source we can find. Our curriculum provider, Orange, has Life Phase Maps which give some general ideas about what is age-appropriate activity and conversations. We commend them to you!
