What adults will be affected by the seminar schedule?
The seminar will be directed toward parents of children and teenagers (birth through high school age) – a group which numbers over 500 households who presently attend FBC Garland.
Will there be a cost to the seminar?
No. The only financial cost will be for the lunch, which is optional and by reservation (to aid food service planning) for the first 300 people. Lunch is $5 per person, collected the day of the seminar. Lunch will be provided separately for preschoolers and children at no cost.
What about Sunday School classes which have applicable parents on their class list?
Every parent of a child or teenager (both members and non-members) who attends FBC will be invited to participate in the seminar. There is the possibility that a large percentage of some classes will choose to attend the seminar and miss Sunday School on February 9. For other classes, there will be varying degrees of participation, removing members and guests from class on that day. The full effects of seminar participation will unfold as parents make their plans during February. Many of our adult classes will not be affected at all, since they don’t have any parents of children or teenagers in their classes.
What about my children?
Preschoolers: bring your child to The Nest, where special activities will be provided that morning.
Children: bring your child to the second floor of the main building, where you will be directed to special activities for children (followed by Sunday School). Include your children in worship with you at 11:15 am. Lunch will be provided in the main building for preschoolers and children.
Teenagers: 2 options. Bring your teen to the third floor of the main building, where you will be directed to special activities for youth (followed by Sunday School).  Include your teenager in worship with you at 11:15 am.  Take your teen with you to the seminar, worship, and lunch.
Do I have to register to attend?
For the seminar…no. However, your registration will help us have a better idea of the number of people to expect. For the lunch time with the seminar speakers…YES. We must have your lunch reservation in order for you to attend. Lunch will be planned for the first 300 people (parents & teens) to make reservations. Your teenager is welcome to stay with you for lunch; be sure to include him/her in your reservation total.

Deuteronomy 6 is clear about the role of parents in shaping the spiritual lives of their children. Our pastor and staff take the church’s role very seriously, equipping parents to fulfill their God-given, privileged task of being the primary spiritual influencers of their kids and the next generation.
