Parent Resources

At The Orchard our desire is to come alongside families as parents lead their children spiritually. We do not seek to replace this important role of parents, but rather seek to encourage, educate and equip them. No one has more influence in a child's life than his or her parents, and it is to them that God has given the primary responsibility and privilege of investing spiritual truths into their child's life.


Seeking to help parents in this ministry, we have complied some resources that are helpful to raising a child in the knowledge and grace of the Lord. Click on any of the links below to access resources, goals and spiritual Milestones for a particular age. Please contact Pastor Scott (scott@orchardmchenry.org) with any questions or needs you may have as you seek to lead a home built on faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
