Parent Ministry

At Flushing Community, we believe in family. Regardless of life stage or situation, we are committed to partnering with parents. Parents are the primary spiritual leaders in the life of a child/teen and we want to help you accomplish this.

This page is a resource for you as a parent because we know parenting is hard work. You're on-call 24-hours-a-day even when you're sick and don't feel like it. Your kids go through changes faster than you can say, "Who are you?". And yet, you're expected to know how to deal with everything that happens all the time. We get to see the wonder they experience when they learn new things. One of our greatest rewards as parents is when we see our children begin to discover who they are in Christ.

That's why we want to do ministry with parents.

If we can help in any way please let us know,

Lunch Box Notes

Dear Parents, The morning rush before school is full of daily routines and a bit of chaos. But in the midst of the madness lies an opportunity for you to offer a regular infusion of faithful encouragement.

This resource is designed to help you offer a daily note of encouragement to your child. We’ll help you get started by giving you a note with a verse for 100 days. You can tweak the note, add what you want to say to it, and give it to your child.

Here are some different ways you can offer the note to your child in a creative way: 

  • Put it in their lunch box each day 
  • Write out the note and stick it to their bathroom mirror
  • Slide it under their pillow
  • Stick it in an envelope and hand it to them as they leave for school 
We hope that this resource makes it a bit easier for you to invest in you relationship with your child. If we help you pass down faith to your child, then we have scored a huge win towards the mission of our ministry. 

If you need any questions about this resource feel free to contact us.

Parenting beyond your capacity: Book Review

As the title suggests, this is a book about parenting. But, it’s not a parenting self-help book; it’s a parenting get-help book. It’s about how parents can increase their parenting capacity by engaging their family in God’s story to the world. This is not just a book for those who are parents though. It also has a wealth of helpful insights for those who are hoping to be parents one day, preparing to be parents, grandparents, those who work with parents or have friends that are parents.

Please download the PDF for the full book review and consider picking up a copy today!!!
