Welcome to GCC Madera’s resources for parents
We want to support you as you bring your children up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord (Ephesians 6:4). Here are some resources we hope you will find helpful.

Children’s Bible Classes
As parents, it is essential for us to model Christ-like behavior in our homes (Titus 2:7-8). In order for us to be a godly example for our children we must both be discipling others and receiving discipleship (Philippians 3:12-17). If you need help finding good discipleship relationships please contact our church office, at 559-674-1172, so we can help you with this.
Jesus Story Book Bible
This book available at www.jesusstorybookbible.com is written for 4 – 8 year olds, but anyone can enjoy it because it does a great job of pointing every lesson in the bible to Jesus and God’s overarching plan for salvation.
Precept – Discover for Yourself (Kids)
These books are great for 8-12+ year old readers, Discover for Yourself (Kids) – Precept books are great. They use the inductive style (just like the adult precepts studies) and give kids the tools to study the bible for themselves.
Institute for Creation Research
This is a great resource for the scientific evidence that backs the creation account. In their Acts & Facts Magazine you will find faith building science related articles.
Reading the Bible
Nothing will ever beat reading through the bible – pick a book and read through it with your kids: We recommend starting with one of the gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, John), or Proverbs, Acts, Romans, or 1 John.
