It is our desire to come alongside parents and form a partnership as we journey together to equip the next generation with a faith of their own. That is why we have created this online space. It is here to help you celebrate key times in the lives of your child and ultimately pass down your faith.

Talking to Your Kids About Racism:

Over the last week, the Aurora Kids team has taken a step back to listen to important voices who are leading change on the topic of race in this country. We want to listen and learn so that we can more ably fight racism. We've assembled resources that we hope will equip you to have meaningful conversations with your children about race.
