Building Up Strong Marriages & Parents
SUNDAYS • 9:00AM • Fireside Room
Parenting. It takes a village. We need support and helpful people along the way. Our plan for this year is to keep a conversation going about our kids, how they are growing up, their hearts, the culture they are growing up in and how do we keep Jesus central in our families. We have pulled together what we think are the most pressing topics and are bringing in fellow sojourners to facilitate these conversations. Come for one session or come for them all.
* We also invite you to join us for a special 4-part Life Class - Intentional Parenting - on Wednesdays in September at 7:00pm in Samsvick Chapel.
