The downloadable Email Templates for both a Flipped and In-Home Class are ready for the convenience of our class leaders. These visit specific email templates allows leaders to edit and personalize the information to meet specific class needs or inform class members of upcoming events.

The templates typically include:

  • A short lesson review

  • Summary of the key take-aways

  • A guide to homework and reading assignments

  • Practical suggestions for teaching children the principles derived from each lesson.

  • Video links for the Visit and other relevant video segments

In addition to the suggested links, leaders can also direct their class participants to other video segments that can be viewed on the website, under the “Parenting Videos” tab. 

As a matter of copyright obligation, any additional video links that are not produced by Growing Families must be so noted in the email being sent out.

Local Group email templates are for those participants who will watch the video with you in your class and these emails will be sent after the class.

Flipped/Online Class email templates are for those participants who will watch the video before attending your class either in person or online.
