Pit Stop for Parents

As our children grow up, life only begins to move faster. In the midst of school and activities, we can often miss the experience of faith development and a deeper understanding of relationship in the family. The hope is to allow a space where parents can stop and reflect on how we can help our children develop through communication and connection with their family and faith. Classes are offered periodically with a different guest speaker, target age group, and focus or theme.

Stay tuned for our next Pit Stop!
