Creating Sacred Moments at Home: An Interactive Workshop for Families
Sunday, October 8th from 11 a.m. - 12 p.m. in the Fireside Room
We will be exploring ways to celebrate the holiness of the everyday. We will explore daily, weekly, and yearly rituals you can build into your routine as well as ways to faithfully respond to things like illness, traumatic events, and everyday anxieties. Every "sacred moment" we will talk about will have an interactive component, so bring your kids and let them explore the sacred through all their senses - hearing, seeing, smelling, tasting, and touching.
Cyber Safety for Your Teen: A Workshop for Parents
Sunday, November 5th from 12 - 2 p.m. in the Peel House
This workshop is for parents of all ages, but particularly those who are parenting children with cell phones. We will be bringing in an outside speaker to speak on proper cyber safety for your child and what is out there today. Spread the word! Friends and neighbors are all welcome to this important discussion.
We at First Lutheran seek to be your partners in this journey of faithful parenting, so please reach out to Michaela Eskew, our Minister of Faith Formation, if there is a topic in particular that is difficult or intimidating to discuss with your children.
