Parenting in Faith

Parenting in Faith is a monthly gathering for parents interested in exploring what it means to be both a child of God and a parent of God’s children.

On the first Wednesday of the month, join us in the Bishop’s Parlor at 7:45 for coffee and donuts, followed by the Parenting in Faith class from 8:00-8:30. Parents may come and go during the meetings as needed and are welcome to join the group at any time of the year. For the 2022-2023 school year, the chaplains will present ideas from The Hopeful Family: Raising Resilient Children in Uncertain Times as a starting point for discussion about parenting and the intersections of faith, family, meaning, and hope amidst life challenges. Author Amelia Richardson Dress reflects on ancient Christian practices that can give us language and framework for addressing contemporary issues.
