Flourish: Parenting Teens in an Anxiety-Ridden, Performance-Driven World

  • Leaf Institute of Art & Vocation (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

What does it mean for our teens to flourish? We hear a lot about setting them up for success, but how can we help them lean into what it means to be human? How can we help them understand what their purpose is in life?

Our teens are growing up in a world marked by unprecedented technological advances, instant access to unlimited information, and a culture flooded with competing ideals and priorities. Performance is often valued above personhood. Social media ensures that our children are never alone - yet they are often lonely. We spend a great deal of time, energy and money preparing them to succeed in school and in the marketplace, but we rarely have the time to stop and consider what it means to thrive. To become more human. We want to offer the time, space, and tools that will help our teens not just to succeed - but to flourish. 

Parenting teens is a vocation, and it asks that we help them prepare for their own callings as well.

This three hour, interactive session is designed for the parents of teenagers. We hope to equip and encourage you as you juggle the multiple priorities and demands of your parenting vocation given the unique opportunities and challenges inherent to our culture. Our time together will include space for personal reflection, a Q&A session, as well as practical tips and resources for parenting your teen. It takes a community to raise a child - consider inviting your neighbors, the parents of your kids' friends, and parents from your school and church communities. Details attached.

*Note: this seminar is crafted and delivered from a Christian worldview, but parents from all faiths are invited and encouraged to attend. It is our belief that the principles covered are universally true and beneficial to all.

$50 per couple

K5-12th Grade Sunday School

During the school year, Sunday School is offered for children in between Sunday morning worship services. Currently, our younger students are studying the Show Me Jesus curriculum (Great Commission Publications), and our older students, the Westminster Catechism

Students meet in the Education Hallway. 

· If your children are in K5-2nd grade, please pick them up from their classrooms.

· If your children are in 3rd-5th grade, they will be dismissed at the end of class and will join you in the lobby.

We ask that a parent or other designated adult remains on site during Sunday School.

*Children are welcome to join a Sunday School class at any time throughout the school year. If your child was not registered in August, and needs any special accommodations or has any food allergies, please contact Mary Young. Food is not regularly served in Sunday School classes, but treats are occasionally offered.

*Parents are welcome to participate in or to observe Sunday School at any time.
