Faithful Parenting group*

6:30-7:30 p.m., Wednesdays.  At Faithful Parenting we connect parents in order to support one another and to grow in faith. This fall we will spend 6 week using the Animate Series through Augsburg Fortress in order to guide an facilitate our conversations. Each week we will be watching a short video introducing our topic for the week and then exploring that topic in conversation.

** In the past we have explored questions of how to raise your children in faith. Our classes are designed to help us invest and discover our own faith and beliefs. This class although named Faithful Parenting is not just for parents. I would welcome any and all people to attend. Please consider joining our group. I promise we will welcome you with open arms!!
