At the beginning of each month, we'll be providing parents with talking points and action points to complement what we're doing at school. It's all about strategic parenting.


Cast Vision: Virtue of the Month

The Servant Leader

  • Servant Leaders live by the motto “I am third”
  • Servant Leaders serve others even when it is unpopular

Communicate Truth: Monthly Scripture

"As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another” 1 Peter 4:10

  • Memorize this scripture together this month
  • Teach your son what it means to use your gifts to serve others

Commit to Discipleship Teaching Points

  • Talk to your son about the gifts that God has given you. Give him examples of how you use those gifts.
  • Make a list with your son of his gifts and your gifts.
  • After completing that list, discuss with him how each of you can use your gifts to serve others.

Champion Service

Invite a group of dads and sons for Saturday of service. Activities might include raking yards or cleaning up at your church or school.

Chief Memory Maker

Find a local ministry that helps families in need with a Thanksgiving meal and serve them as a family.
