Welcome to the Family! Our goal is to help you take a next step to
Follow Jesus and Fearlessly Make Him Known! July 3, 2022
Parents of Adult Kids | July 10
After service on Sunday, July 10, Kevin and Julie Pike and Bob and Barb Johnson will be hosting a lunch and meeting for parents who are looking for some guidance and support for relating to their adult children. If you are a parent of a child or student, there seems to be plenty of resources to help you parent well. But for those of us who are parents of adult children, guidance and support seems non-existent. From parents who are just adjusting to a new way to relate to your adult child, to those who are facing serious challenges, we encourage you to come. Please RSVP to AmyR@fearlessfollower.org.
