At Flushing Community, we believe in family. Regardless of life stage or situation, we are committed to partnering with parents. Parents are the primary spiritual leaders in the life of a child/teen and we want to help you accomplish this.
This page is a resource for you as a parent because we know parenting is hard work. You're on-call 24-hours-a-day even when you're sick and don't feel like it. Your kids go through changes faster than you can say, "Who are you?". And yet, you're expected to know how to deal with everything that happens all the time. We get to see the wonder they experience when they learn new things. One of our greatest rewards as parents is when we see our children begin to discover who they are in Christ.
That's why we want to do ministry with parents.
If we can help in any way please let us know,
Pastor Troy and Pastor Kelli
