Parent Support Group: Getting connected -

Question we will be tackling this evening;

Will our children have faith? Or will our Faith have Children?

From Roman's 6:


Children and Parents

6 Children, obey your parents in the Lord,[a] for this is right. 2 “Honor your father and mother”—this is the first commandment with a promise: 3 “so that it may be well with you and you may live long on the earth.”

4 And, fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.

When we consider all of the changes to our daily lives due to COVID 19 how are we doing as parents with creating the framework of faith in our homes?

If you don’t have experience in small groups – no worries – below is a short description of what small support groups are all about.

It is a fellowship. A way to stay connected in an uncertain time.

Facilitators are: Janelle Willett, Mom of one (amazing child) and Youth Minister for Christ Church Episcopal (Kalispell)

WHAT ARE PEER SUPPORT GROUPS?

  • Support groups - also often referred to as self-help groups - are groups of people who gather to share common problems and experiences associated with a particular problem, condition, illness, or personal circumstance. In a support group, people are able to talk with other folks who are like themselves - people who truly understand what they're going through and can share the type of practical insights that can only come from firsthand experience.

  • Some of the common characteristics of support groups include:

  • · They are made up of peers - people who are all directly affected by a particular issue, illness, or circumstance

  • · They usually have a professional or volunteer discussion leader or facilitator

  • · They tend to be fairly small in size, to better allow everyone a chance to talk

  • · Attendance is voluntary (although sometimes people are required to attend support groups by employers or the court system, especially if criminal or destructive behavior has been involved)

We hope you plan on joining us this evening.
