Our children are the church of the future. And if they are the future that means we have work today. Many of us are parents doing our best to raise our children to love God and love people. Many of us have friends who have children we love. Many of us are a part of the church that is full of children. So, how do we all make an impression on the church of the future? Vintage Church believes in the Orange Strategy. We believe that two combined influences make a greater impression than just two individual influences. The influence of the church (yellow) + the influence of the home (red) = greater impact (orange). Join Vintage Church as we discover together how we can make a lasting impression on future generations.


It’s Just a Phase: Parenting Equip Night

A phase is a time frame in each child's life when you as parents and a church community can leverage distinctive opportunities to influence their future. That means the whining infant, the dramatic fifth grader, and the stressed-out tenth grader are not just going through a phase that should be wished away. Instead, they are transitioning through a critical phase that you are called to walk through with them in love and relationship, utilizing strategic conversations.

If you weren’t able to make it for this night, or you want to re-watch or re-listen to it, check out all of the sessions at It’s Just A Phase.
