Celebrating familes with young children at Central
We invite all parents, grandparents, aunts, and uncles to join us as we have conversations to get to heart of the matter about what's important in nurturing our children in their faith.
We will meet the entire month of April in the Brotherhood Room from 9:45 to 10:45 AM.
While each session can stand alone, there is a structure to the series that resembles the ever-expanding circles when a pebble hits a pond. At the center of those circles is God, thenexpanding to your child, your family, your church, and the world. Breakfast will be provided and we'll have giveaways! Learn more about each session below.
April 3 God as Parent
Come and engage through conversations and activities as we explore what it means to see God as parent. We will look at children's literature and biblical narratives.

April 24 Faith Development of Children within the context of Church
