Workshops

We provide free workshops each year to address the issues you as a parent face:

  • Effective and healthy discipline
  • Separation Anxiety
  • Sibling Rivalry
  • Youth and social media
  • Peer pressure

Spiritual Exploration

As kids grow they begin to ask tough questions like:

  • Where did the world come from?
  • Where do we go when we die?
  • Is heaven real?
  • Who or what is God?

If you’re not sure how to answer and haven’t thought about this for awhile, contact Pastor Liz who can help you explore these questions.

We have a great children’s library, with books, audio books, and DVDs to delight and educate your children.
