A Connected Families Workshop helps bridge the gap between common parenting struggles and the church’s desire to equip them.

Entitlement • Discipline • Sibling Conflict • Peaceful Parenting • Questions

Parents will learn practical ways to model their faith during day-to-day interactions (especially when things get messy!).
