Build your family on Solid Ground

Solid Ground - A Model for Family Discipleship is a project of the WELS Northern Wisconsin District Commission on Discipleship. This work is presented in seven presentations with five core modules. Solid Ground equips and empowers parents to be the primary influencers in raising their children in the Lord, just as He designed. Each presentation is previewed in brief videos offered below. The handout linked below is the study guide for all the Solid Ground content.

An Introduction to Solid Ground: The Critical Hour

In this overview video, Pastor Monday describes just how critical it is that families build on solid ground. The world is not a friendly place for Christian children, and they need to be raised with a firm foundation that includes worship and godly guidance from parents and adults in their lives.

As Christ loved the church, so we love one another. The presence of Christ brings peace to a home. Module 4 fosters real-life conversations on how we maintain relationships.

Mother and Son


The church can be a blessing to a family. What is the role of the church in raising children? Who is best equipped to disciple children? Module 5 prompts you to think about your role as parents and the role of church in your family life.

Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock.
Matthew 7:24

Resources for Facilitators

Solid Ground modules can be viewed and independently studied by parents in their homes. We believe the experience is more enriching when shared with other parents in a group setting. Facilitators can use the resources below to help participating families create follow-up plans and accountability.
