The aim of this program is to make our parenting resources even more affordable for the parents in your congregation.
Parenting is one of the most important and rewarding tasks during our time on earth. Children are a blessing. It can also be one of the most confusing, difficult and emotionally draining tasks ever! Bottom-line – parents cannot do it alone and are in need of guidance and support. Parenting is one of the most written about subjects and one of the easiest to find books on. However, in this post-modern world it is not that easy to find trustworthy Scripture-based content.
Every church understands the importance of a ministry to parents. The challenge lies in finding suitable content, the ideal time-slot in the calendar for lengthy presentations while addressing everybody’s needs, not to mention the restraints on the budget.
We believe Evergreen Parenting will tick all the right boxes.
Hettie Brittz recorded a video-course known as “The Parenting Garden.” The course content is Biblically sound, yet based on proven theories; comprehensive yet focused on practical implementation; offers age-specific content yet covers everything about parenting babies to teenagers. And when you take the time-saving benefits of an online course and the cost-effectiveness into account, it makes the most sense. As a bonus parents will be encouraged and inspired to not only better parenting, but also to spiritual growth and a closer walk with God. (Read more about our parenting principles here). Churches and congregations in South Africa can now utilise this course content through the Evergreen@Church Initiative.
The Evergreen@Church Membership program might be ideal for your congregation. In this case, parents pay their own subscriptions. However, a discount is provided on the video courses if the church partner with us.
Summary of the Church Membership Program
