Parenting Bible Study – 8 Weeks
Fall 2013: Starts September 12
Thursdays at 7PM
Location: Pastor Matt and Carrie Proctor’s home
Dear Potential Study Participant,
Have you ever felt like a useless parent? Have you tried different parenting techniques only to continue to struggle as a parent? Do you struggle with guilt in the area of parenting?
If you answered ‘yes’ to any of the questions above, you are a normal parent. Parenting is one of the most difficult things in the world, but just because it is difficult, doesn’t mean we can ignore our important responsibilities.
Would you be willing to commit the next 8 weeks to growing as a parent? Would you take 90 minutes each week for 8 weeks to focus on your heart?
We’d like to invite you to a different kind of parenting course. It’s not more “how-to-be-a-perfect-parent” ideas. It’s not more “10-tricks-to-raising-children.” It’s a course that says parenting has much more to do with the soul of the parent than the behavior of their children. And so, would you take 8 weeks and think about parenting in a different way?
The study we’ll be doing is a DVD-based study taught by Gary Thomas. We’ll watch short video clips as a group and then discuss how the truths of the study relate to our personal lives as parents. The group will be small, under 12 parents (probably 6-8). Each couple will receive a participant guide that only costs $5. We’ll also see if a different couple would like to bring a snack or a dessert each week.
If you are interested in attending the class, either call or email Matt or Carrie Proctor by September 9. The class starts September 12 and will meet 8 consecutive weeks until October 31. Even if you have one or two conflicts on your calendar already, please still consider joining the class.
