Pastor of Families and Young Adults: Jeff Darnauer

Be encouraged, informed, and equipped for your vital role.

Join our ParentConect group & subscribe to our regular emails below.

Join our twice-a-month gatherings for parents.  These will be informal (think small group), collaborative (we’ll learn from each other), encouraging (no judgment, just hope-filled), and informative (we’ll hear from some seasoned parents and great resources).

Beginning Sept 18, and continuing the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month.

We'll tackle some tough topics that parents have to deal with, such as technology usage, navigating relationships, dealing with anxiety/depression, and more. 

We'll meet from 6:30-7:30 in a classroom on the 2nd floor of the church while the youth are in Connection.

Here's is the schedule of topics for the fall of 2019:
