Social Distancing Parent Resources

Parenting in a Quarantine:

During this time of social distancing and quarantines we want to be here to support you and to continue ministering to your family. We are only a week and a half into school being shut down and already I am aware of a feeling of disconnect from all of my church family.
It can be easy to feel overwhelmed, helpless, and fearful right now, especially as we try to find ways to nurture and teach our children during a crisis that we’ve never experienced before. I want to remind you of some of God’s truths - God is with you and he will give you peace.

I would encourage your family to spend some time over the next few weeks memorizing this verse. I find putting a verse on a notecard in a central location in the house really helps us with memorization. Another favorite verse of mine, during times of stress is:

It’s a great reminder to me to take a time out, breathe, and pray when I find myself angry or overwhelmed with my children. And most importantly, know that YOU ARE NOT ALONE. It’s easy to feel alone and isolated right now (even in a house full of people!) God is here for you and He has equipped His church to be there for you. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to the staff of CrossRoads church, we are here for you! From phone calls, to virtual bible studies, to a food pantry, we are here to support you. Let us know what you need!

We have been gathering various resources for you and your student that we’d like to share with you to help. Please let us know of any other resources you come across, I’d love to add them to our list!
