Family Resources

Eastview Family Resources is helping people to be intentional about building and rebuilding healthy homes and families. We provide resources that guide people throughout the seasons of families including those choosing to be single to those whose kids are grown and gone. We offer opportunities and resources to facilitate spiritual formation in the home and nurture the faith of our children and grandchildren.


Beginning with the new realities of young adulthood, through the child-rearing years and into the empty nest, we have a plan for your family to follow that include milestone events such as your wedding, baby dedication, your child’s baptism, age milestones and launching a young adult.


We have PARENTING PLANS available to help you raise your kids with a step by step plan for each year of their life. Register your family and each year on your child’s birthday, you will receive a birthday packet that will help focus on one particular area of spiritual formation in your child’s life each year on your child’s birthday.  Sign up to receive your Annual Parenting Plan by texting #parentplan to 309-808-6002 and each year we’ll send you your next plan.  Plans are also available as a hard copy at the Family Resource Center or downloadable files below.


Located just outside the Normal Campus Worship Center on the lower level of the atrium next to the bookstore, we have recommended resources for individuals, families and small groups. We have over 30 topical “Quick Read” Cards that provide overviews on topics such as “Considering Divorce,” “Leading Your Child to Faith Decision” and “Expecting A Baby;” along with “Next Steps” and “Recommended Resources” where we can connect you with pastors, confidants from the congregation, books, videos or ministry programs for your specific need.
