Kinect: Parents of Teens

Being a parent of a teen is rewarding, exciting, and challenging.  The rewards of parenting teenagers can far outweigh the challenges.  With skills and understanding, you can guide your teen to be responsible, cooperative, and independent while building a strong and positive relationship with your teen. There are always more effective ways to get along with and help your teen.  If you are interested in a practical approach to help you parent and nurture your teenager, we have two opportunities to help you find the skills and ideas you need.

Kinect – Parents of Teens hosted by Sheri Martin, where groups of parents meet for fellowship and to discuss their successes and challenges in raising teens.

Meeting Date/Time: The second Monday of each month.
Meeting Location: Martin home or the church

Widows Group

The Widows Small Group is a social and support group.  We meet monthly for an activity away from the church. We always eat and have a lot of fun. The members plan their activities for the year ahead.  We are there to support and guide each other.  New widows are invited to join. Our members know that there is always someone to listen and help them through any experience. We work to serve the church by acting as ushers, greeters, hostesses for coffee hour, as well as helping with other church functions.

Meeting Date/Time: Monthly at various times
Meeting Location: Off-site
