Parenting

At Jacob's Well we believe family is the primary influence in the spiritual formation of a child's life. We are committed to supporting and partnering with you through each exciting age, stage, and milestone.

 

Parenting Journey

The Parenting Journey series is offered at various times throughout the year. This series empowers and equips parents by taking an in-depth look at topics important to each stage of development. Guest speakers, resources, and Q&A sessions are all part of this powerful series.

Baptisms

Baptism at Jacob's Well is a public profession of faith made by individual decision. If you and your child would like to learn more about baptism, attend either the adult or parent/student baptism class.

Trust-Based Relational Intervention

(TBRI) A well-researched and biblical parenting approach for families and children from all stages, ages and backgrounds. Specific principles are taught to build trustworthy relationships by setting up both the caregiver and child for success, so the "real" child can be seen.
