Sharing the Gospel with Your Child

Occasionally, your child will observe friends who have made decisions to accept God’s gift of salvation and have chosen to follow in believer’s baptism.

While we never want your child to be forced into a decision to follow Christ, we do want you as the parent to have spiritual conversations with your child at those unique moments of worship. Spiritual conversations are like…

Sins of the Father

Resolve to defy any sinful legacy and turn your family around. 1. The sins of the father punish future generations when they become the sins of the children (Deut. 24:16). – Fathers shall not be put to death because of their children, nor shall children be put to death because of their fathers. Each one shall be put to death for his own sin. 2. God does not hold you responsible for any sins other than your own (Ezek. 18:20). – The…

“Facing Darkness” Movie

About Facing Darkness As the Ebola pandemic was sweeping across West Africa in the spring of 2014, one organization was willing to step up and fully commit its people and resources to provide comfort, compassion, and care to the hurting people of Africa … all in the Name of Jesus.

Time for Fun

The alarm clock goes off, and it’s off to the races – backpacks, lunch boxes, car rider lines, straighten the house, run some errands, a second car rider line, unpack lunch boxes, and go through backpacks looking for papers to sign and homework to do. When your day feels like one big rat race, you might forget that there are moments in each day you can capture and cherish with your children. There are moments in each day you can…

Grateful for Rocky Creek Academy

Parent’s Perspective on Rocky Creek Academy We have had at least one child attend Rocky Creek Academy since 2007. Next year, 2017-2018, will be our last year as our third and last baby will graduate from K4. Bittersweet. My children have been lucky to share the same wonderful experience year after year.

The Truth About Satan’s Favorite Lies

Satan is a master of disguise. He knows how to disguise his wolves to attract and ultimately destroy you and your friends. Ironically, Satan’s trap is always the same. He attempts to make the dangerous seem harmless. He makes the ugly seem beautiful. He makes the bad seem good. He makes your wrong choice seem OK. Ironically, Satan’s trap is always the same. He attempts to make the dangerous seem harmless. If you learn to recognize the traps and dangers…
