Our Parent 2 Parent ministry consists of two elements.
*One is centered around material entitled “The Parenting Project”, which is given to all new parents when their baby is dedicated. The group meets once every month to discuss certain topics and share ideas.
*The second element involves pairing up these new parents with a mentoring couple who have “been there, done that” and would be willing to walk along side new parents as they experience the joys and trials of parenting. The mentors would arrange opportunities to get together with their “adopted Couple” to offer support, fellowship, and encouragement. This could be sharing a meal together, a relaxed evening in the home, or other opportunities.
Our group is growing, so we are in need of five or six couples to serve as mentors. Mentors would not be required to attend the monthly sessions and would mutually agree with your new-parent couple on when and how often to meet. This is a wonderul opportunity to minister to young families, so please prayerfully consider getting involved. Contact Susan Tatum at 567-5920 for more information or to volunteer.
