TheParentlink is a ministry for families with teenagers. While it is our goal at 24.7 to reach students for Christ and help them to grow on their spiritual journey; we know that it is parents who have the greatest impact in the lives of teenagers. It is our desire to come along side families by supporting them with resources geared at raising Godly adolescents. These resources include monthly printed materials, web links, Bible studies, Q & A meetings and conferences - most of which are provided absolutely free.We believe that families engaging with one another as the church body is critical to the spiritual health of the entire family. As a church, on the first Sunday of the month the entire family, from elementary age children to senior adults, join together for Family Worship Sunday. During this time, every age group worships together in the main Lakeside Fellowship Worship Center. In addition, theParentLink hosts regular events that allow families with teenagers to connect with each other outside of Sunday morning worship gatherings; these events are recreational events, missions/service-oriented events or both.
