Come join us on Wednesday nights in Discovery Park for a fun series called “Auto-B-Good” that teaches about life lessons through the eyes of cars. Instead of just dropping off your child for a few hours, let’s see how we can get you plugged in as well serving in one of our areas here at EBC.


This is an excerpt from the Parenting Beyond Your Capacity by Reggie Joiner and Carey Nieuwhof

A crucial link exists between your ability to parent and your personal growth.

When it comes to character and faith, your kids are watching you in a way they might not watch you in other pursuits. Because it’s so personal, you can’t do faith and character for your kids.

If you want it to be in them, it needs to be in you.
