Parents

Parents, we know that Sunday school teachers, pastors, and youth leaders get all the glory when it comes to being the go-to people for faith formation of our youth.  The reality is though that YOU are the most important person in your child's life!  From birth through adolescence (even though they may not admit it!), your kids are looking to you to make sense of this world and figure out who they are.  We want to empower you, as your child's primary source faith formation, to actively nurture your child's relationship with their Creator.  

We are still working on the various ways we hope to do that, but we will be starting with:

  • A Parenting Blog - Each week starting in September/October we will have someone from our church blog about various topics on Christian parenting.  We will cover things like: sports, depression, "what is advent anyways?", ways to pray with your family, sex, etc.  Through this blog we hope to learn from eachother, and have a place for parents to discuss topics of parenting together.
  • Parent Discussions - Periodically throughout the school year there will be evenings we will invite parents to get together, order a drink and food, and talk about different challenges facing their lives as parents.  They will cover different topics each time they meet, and hope to learn from eachothers successes and failures. 

There is more that we are hoping to do in the coming months, but if there is more we can do to support you as a parent, please don't hesitate to reach out to Andrew or Sarah Hostetter: ahostetter@waynepres.org or shostetter@waynepres.org.
