Our children's ministry periodically offers a class for parents and kids to attend together called "The Big Step." This 90-minute event features a brief training session for parents, a salvation lesson, discussion time for kids and parents, and even a photo station to create a take-home piece to remember the evening. The class seeks to create time for parents and their kids to have a meaningful discussion about a relationship with Jesus. No pressure exists to make a decision, although we prepare parents for that possibility.
