Parents of Children and Youth (Room 303, Adult Wing) Contact: Mandy and Steve Lloyd,

All parents of children and youth are invited to join this discussion based class.  Parenting is one of the hardest jobs, but it is also the only job we don’t receive any formal training!  Parenting can simultaneously be the most rewarding and the most exhausting part of our life. If you’d like to connect with other parents and grow in your faith journey, please join us!  Our curriculum is a mix between bible study and discussions around parenting children and youth. Join us as we tackle what that means, and how to support and encourage one another in Christian love.
