Family Resources

God has ordained the family and church to partner with Him and one another.  “Strong families make a strong church, and a strong church strengthens and equips them to participate together in God’s kingdom.” (The Family God Uses).

Two of our CBC values are: (1) Live a Biblical vision of family and church, and (2) Multiply disciples of the next generation, our neighbors, and the nations.  Thus, we desire to partner together in order to practice the Biblical vision of family and church throughout all generations.  We have provided several resources to help enhance our partnership in living out this Biblically based vision.
