What’s the target for your child? Who do you want them to become? What character traits do you most want your child to embody? While every parent wants to raise good kids, most parents have only a vague description of what that means. Parents are so busy raising kids that they rarely take time to focus on what the target is… much less how to hit that target.
The Bible character, Joseph, left home at age 18, yet the qualities instilled during his childhood enabled him to resist bitterness toward his brothers, the temptation of Potiphar’s wife, and doubt of God’s plan. In this sermon series, we’ll discover 5 character qualities from the life of Joseph and set a specific target for 5 phases of childhood: preschool, early elementary, older elementary, middle school, and high school.
BONUS – our adult Life Groups will be offering a companion study to this series. The sermons will provide the theory; the Life Groups will provide practical examples and ideas for hitting those 5 targets, as well as encouragement to get it done. You may choose an on-campus Life Group on Sundays at 9:45 AM or an off-campus Life Group on Saturdays at 6:30 PM. Contact the church office via the form at the bottom of the page.
