Spokane Christian Church

Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.

—Deuteronomy 6:7

We believe that strong families and amazing marriages are foundational to the health and strength of our church and community. As a church family, we gather in small groups during the week for mutual encouragement and to strengthen one another in our walks with God. In this way, our children see our relationships and stay close with their peers as we all strive to raise them in the Lord.

In our households, we emphasize regular "family times" to focus on both enjoying togetherness and to open the Scriptures in a meaningful way to our children. Those times can also provide a "safe zone" to ask for feedback or an opportunity to own up to a parenting mistake. Even meal and drive times can be powerful family moments. If we consistently show a realness and share our joy and love for God, his Word will certainly make a positive impression on our children.
