What would it look like to give our kids and students a compelling faith? What if we challenged them to know something more than just a long list of people and places? What if our kids and students regularly encountered God? What if they learned to hear God's voice and to respond?
The Beacon desires to see these questions answered. Our goal is to grow spiritually healthy families. We would like to foster a generation that has an active relationship with God and who are looking for a way to bring the kingdom of God here.
CORE VALUES: We believe that to grow spiritually healthy families, parents must be equipped to:
- be the primary nurturers of their kid's faith (Deut. 6) and
- the faith community needs to play a supportive role in this endeavor (Eph. 4) and
- we must remain dependent on the Holy Spirit to bring about spiritual growth and formation when and as He chooses (Phil. 2:13)
WHAT WE TEACH: Our curriculum is a dynamic, spiritually forming, and family-empowered ministry philosophy that offers our church a vibrant weekend experience, as well as other family resources that meet the needs of today's generation. The curriculum used for our kids and our students is uniquely developed to inspire, equip and support parents and volunteers/leaders in their ministry.
Our Families Team believes that spiritual development can and should begin from the earliest age with parents as the primary nurturers of their children's faith. With this in mind, our resources support both the church and home with a focus on knowing God personally, igniting a passion for Christ, learning to listen to His Spirit. Keeping biblical content true to context, and cultivating a concern for people's needs in our community.
