For Parents Only
Parents….YOU ARE AWESOME!!! Thank you. Thank you for loving and knowing your kids. Thank you for letting them hang out with us. Most of all, thank you for pointing them to Jesus.
We want to provide you with an opportunity to find out what is going on with your students while they are with us. We exist to partner with you. Please feel free to ask questions or let us know how we can help you. We want this section of our website to help you get some information about our ministry, how to deal and thrive with your teens, as well as find out ways that you can help us.
First off, we'd love to have you join our CBC Parents Facebook page. It's an easy way to communicate needs and updates for just the parents.
We would also like to have parents involved in Student Ministries if they'd like to (as long as your student is ok with it). Helping out with events, checking in on Wednesday nights, or something else. To ensure the safety of our students, we ask that you'd please fill out this Parent Volunteer Application if you'd like to help with our events. If you have filled out a volunteer form for Children's ministry in the past 3 years, we do not need another.
Maybe you're wondering what takes place during the teen years as students transition from childhood to adulthood. Maybe you are curious about a specific situation in your family. Maybe you need resources for understanding and dealing with media. Here are some books you can borrow as well as websites you can check out to help with some of those questions. These and many other books are available to help you understand, communicate, and disciple your child. You can find them in Phil's office located on the bookshelf right inside the door. There's even a book sign out if you grab something while he's not there.
