For Grades: 1st Grade 2nd Grade 3rd Grade 4th Grade 5th Grade 6th Grade

This year we want to give boys a chance to learn more about what it means to be a man while spending time with an adult that is teaching them about manhood. So, we are hosting a monthly breakfast focusing on the 7 Virtues of Manhood at school.

Our 7 Virtues of Manhood Breakfasts are for elementary grade boys (1-6) and their adult hosts.

The format will be as follows:

  • Start at 7:00 in the fellowship hall and enjoy Chick-fil-A breakfast around the tables, while sitting with others from your son’s grade as much as possible.
  • Hear what the virtue means from a 6th grade boy
  • Learn the virtue in more detail through a 7 minute lesson from one of our leaders
  • Spend the majority of the time working around the table with your boys with age appropriate questions and activities
  • End by 7:55

The boys will be dismissed to chapel from the breakfast. Adult hosts are welcome to join us for chapel from 8:00-8:30 in the sanctuary or depart after breakfast.

Register for The Humble Hero Breakfast - Friday, Oct. 18

Dates for the year:

  • Sept 6 - True Friend
  • Oct 18 - Humble Hero
  • Nov 81 8 - Servant Leader
  • Jan 10 - Pacesetter
  • February 7 - Bold Adventurer
  • March 20 - Noble Knight
  • April 3 - Faithful Follower

Because of the nature of this breakfast, each boy must have an adult host in order to attend. If one adult is going to be hosting multiple boys, please enter them as part of the group registration, even if that person has already registered with another boy. For families with special circumstances, please reach out to me and one of the school based mentors will host your son, or we can discuss another option.

We look forward to seeing you October 18.

All PDS Grandparents are invited to attend Grandparents’ Day!

An invitation is in the process of being mailed to all grandparents.


Over the past weeks, we have explored how to help our children grow up like Jesus—“in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man” (Luke 2:52). We have seen how to help our kids grow in wisdom and stature. Now we turn our focus to growing in favor with God and man.

This is the second article in a three part series on helping our children grow in wisdom, stature, and favor with God and man (Luke 2:52).

As we continue our series on growing to be like Jesus in wisdom, stature, and favor with God and man (Luke 2:52), this article focuses on what it means to grow in stature. You can find the introduction to this series here, and the article on wisdom here.

Quick—think of someone you admire. What four or five attributes do you admire about them?

Maybe you thought of their talents or skills—or even their strength or their intelligence. But it’s likely most of the things you thought of have to do with character.

We should think about our kids in a similar way. We want our kids to grow physically and develop skills in academics, arts, and sports, is that really what we want our kids to be known for? I think we want our children to be known for their character—for being brave or kind or wise.

Growing in stature means developing physically and developing a reputation. As a parent which part of growing in stature can you have the biggest impact on as you spend time with them and shape them? Certainly not height! And while you can have some impact on the skills your children develop, you can have a huge impact on the development of their character.
