THRIVING IN MARRIAGE

THRIVING AS PARENTS
God has called every parent to be like Christ and to thrive in their respective roles as father or mother. It may be challenging in what your child may face in this world, but in Christ, you can nurture, guide, support and inspire them.
Becoming a father or mother is a high calling from God and it is important to have strong foundations for parenting. This seminar seeks to prepare would-be or new parents in God-centred parenting.
