Family discipleship

At Eudora Baptist we believe the home is the most spiritually influential aspect in a child's life. This agrees and is motivated by scripture when Moses told Israel "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might..... You shall teach them diligently to your children" (Dt. 6:5-7). We believe this can happen within church ministries, but ideally occurs within the family home. 


EBC offers ministries for kids and teens. We think these are valuable. You can find more information on those pages. We also desire parents & families to feel equipped to create an atmosphere at home where all members can thrive spiritually! Yet, this can be a challenge. It can also be intimidating to many parents. We would love to help. 


Below are several resources that EBC would recommend for parents, grandparents, and anyone leading the next generation. These come recommended to help equip you to lead your family in spiritual growth. There is no silver bullet. And there are many other ways we seek to partner with you, but these are great tools for you to utilize.
