Growing Kids God's Way



An 18-week parenting course that is offered at Open Door Baptist Church in January every year. The church has been presenting the course since 1995, with life-changing results in countless numbers of families. Steve and Andrea D’Amico facilitate the class with teaching through DVDs, class workbooks, class discussion and practical application. Each week provides workable principles from God’s Word that can be utilized in today’s family to bring about peace and harmony in the home and in the marriage relationship. No stone is left unturned!


The classes take place on Sunday nights from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the Sunday school building at the church. For families with children from ages 5 to 12, we offer a program, “Patch the Pirate”, during the time of the class. This is a Biblically based Club with singing, skits, fun activities and daily devotions. For children ages 3 and 4, we have a class that coincides with the Growing Kid’s course. So when adults are learning a principal, your children will be learning the same principal adaptable to their age. There are games, coloring and stories to help with this instruction. For children ages 2 and under, our nursery is provided.  The cost of the course is $45 per couple. You will receive two workbooks, many handouts and lots of instruction on what the Bible has to say about raising families.
