Families are our priority at ReCAST Church. We believe that parents are the primary teachers and spiritual nurturers of their children. It is the church’s role to help equip parents and to come along side them as they teach when “sitting at home, walking along the way, when lying down, and when getting up.” (Deut. 6: 6-8) With that in mind, below are some resources that can help parents in their efforts to lead and influence their kids in their journey of faith.
