It is our conviction that Scripture gives to parents the primary responsibility of training their children in the Lord (Prov. 22:6). It is parents, and not children’s ministry workers or youth pastors, who are mainly called to disciple their children in the truths of the Gospel.
So one way we care for the children and youth in the church is by equipping parents and families for the task God has given them. We do this through parent meetings, occasional training seminars, and the resources in our bookstore. Also, see the support ministries included below.
Lakeview Home Educators Association (LHEA)
Lakeview Home Educators Association, referred to as LHEA, exist to help support and aid homeschooling families through providing a variety of classes, both academic and biblical, and to foster a Christ-centered environment. LHEA helps students foster education through hands-on learning. LHEA strives to support moms through encouragement and raise excitement in continuing to teach their children through home education.
Mothers of Pre-Schoolers (MOPS)
MOPS is a ministry dedicated to serving moms with children ages 0-5 years old. Being a new mom in this season of life has many challenges, and MOPS offers them a place where they can be themselves, get a 2 hour break to talk about the struggles of motherhood with peers, and be encouraged by other moms in their season and seasons beyond them.
At MOPS, there are 6-7 tables with a Table Leader (one who facilitates the discussion) and a Mentor Mom (a woman and mother who is beyond having preschool aged children). When a mom comes to MOPS, she gets childcare and breakfast. She gets to hear an inspiring word from a Christian speaker and is able to discuss how to apply it with other moms who sit at her table. Each table also has many activities offered throughout the year to encourage and build community with each other. Many lives have been changed, many moms have found refuge, many hearts have been softened, many women have prayed together, laughed together, and listened to each other.
