"Our spiritual vocation as grandparents is to delight in our grandchildren.” So says Pastor Ralph Milton. In this Lunch & Learn conversation, we will outline the joys and the opportunities of grandparenting, especially from a perspective as people of faith. What is our role in embodying the faith that holds us and gives us hope? What is it like to be a kid these days? How is the church helpful (and not-so-helpful) in the spiritual awakening of children and teens?

This conversation is for grandparents, grandparents-to-be, and parents who are interested in securing allies in bringing up children who are connected to a positive spirituality.

Please R.S.V.P with the  church office .
Seeking Volunteers for Fare For All
Fare For All is seeking volunteers to serve next week on Thursday, May 23 from 4-6 p.m. at Crown of Glory. This is a wonderful way to serve people in our community! The shoe bus will also be at the event so additional volunteers are needed because it usually draws a larger crowd. 

If you are able to volunteer, please contact Kanitta Rentfrow.
