Parent Resources

These resources will be updated periodically so please check back often

The ParentCue is a blog - a Cue - a prompt.  It’s not an encyclopedia on everything you need to know. It’s not an exhaustive training course to make sure your kids “turn out”. It’s not a counseling hotline you can call when you have a help-I-can’t-believe-my-child-just . . .- crisis. This blog is a cue. It’s a prompt. Because really, they know you’re already incredibly busy doing all the things you should do to invest in your kids and to help them on their way to adulthood—and hopefully out of your house. But just because you are really busy doing great things doesn’t mean it’s easy to stay focused on what’s important. That’s where they come in. They want to make it easy for you to remember what’s important.

Mission Trip/Retreat Scholarship Application
Meredith Drive Reformed Church has set up sources of financial assistance for those MDRC members and students who want to participate in an MDRC sponsored mission trip or retreat, but who are unable to meet the financial commitment on their own. It is generally assumed that if financial support was not available through these funds, the applicant would not be able to participate in the trip. You can apply by filling out the Scholarship Application.
