Sunday Afternoon Programming Fall 2021 915 21 Without Start Date

Sunday Afternoon Programming - Fall 2021

For Adults: Parenting - led by Patrick Cherry & Carole Farrar - MB 151 Amidst folding laundry, coordinating carpool schedules and breaking up fights, many parents get lost. In the quest for practical tips and guaranteed formulas, it's easy to lose sight of our ultimate purpose as parents. We’ll use Paul Tripp’s book Parenting as a springboard for discussions about foundational principles centered on the gospel that show we need more than the latest parenting strategy. Rather, we need the rescuing power of God’s grace to shape how we view everything we do as parents. No book required.
