This program is geared towards parents of youth (and there will be a simultaneous session for 6th-12th graders in a different room), but as mental health is a growing concern among children of ALL ages, this program will include some valuable information about recognizing and addressing mental health concerns that could be helpful even if you have younger kiddos!

*Preschool bibles are for “rising” three year olds – children who turn(ed) three between 9/1/22-8/31/23. If you have a child in that age range, you should have received a separate email a couple weeks ago with details. If you received that email, please remember to RSVP HERE. If you have a child who turned three before 9/1/22, but did not receive a bible last year, please let me know and they can be added to the list.
