Youth Parents - we have a good word for you! First Baptist Huntsville is here to support you!
Discipleship Opportunities -
First, we do this by believing in the old proverb, "It takes a village to raise a child." Because we believe in this proverb, we offer various opportunities to bring parents together. Here are our upcoming Parent Ministry events:
Our Spring 2015 opportunities for parenting and discipleship will be announced soon.
Second, we want to equip you with resources.
At one point we hosted a parenting seminar on "Parenting After the Storms". Click HERE to view the videos featuring Jack and Amanda Ragland of the Vine Counseling Ministry.
