Family Resources

We know that when it comes to helping kids grow spiritually, what happens at home is more important than what happens at church on Sunday!  We want to partner with you as you take on the role of spiritual leader of your family.  We have a bunch of great resources for you to use at home that keep the conversations started on Sunday going all week long.

Follow the links on this list to check out each of the resources.  And if there is something missing here that would be a help to you and your family, please let us know!  (send an email to Pastor Mike - mike@essexalliance.org)
  • OrangeParents.org - This website is a treasure trove of information!  It has details, blogs, videos, downloadable files that match what we are teaching in lil'Fusion and kidFusion each week.  It's a great resource!
  • Got an iPod / iPad / iPhone?  Download this ParentCue App... it is a great way to see what we are teaching in kidFusion.
  • Sprouts Nursery - During Sunday mornings, the 2 and 3 year old kids in our nursery program have a short story and music time matching what is taught at lil'Fusion. We post each month a resource for parents of nursery aged kids to use at home called Parent Time.
  • lil'Fusion Preschool - our Sunday morning preschool ministry is called lil'Fusion.  Each week the preschoolers focus on a Bible story, key question, and the bottom line (answer to the question).  Check out our resources that match what we are talking about at lil'Fusion.
  • kidFusion Elementary - our Sunday morning elementary ministry is called kidFusion.  Each month we focus on a Biblical virtue or character trait.  We have several resources to help you talk about these virtues at home. Our Parent Cue and God Time devotional come home with the kids each week.  We post them online in case you miss a week.
  • Parent Link Live - Each month a new podscast is posted which has a great audio conversation giving helpful, practical advice for parents.
  • Prayer Request - have a special prayer request? We would love to pray for you, your family, and your kids. Use our online prayer request form to let us know how we can specifically be in prayer for you.
