Building Family Traditions

Mark your calendars for the evening of Saturday, February 21st. We are hosting a 'Building Family Traditions' Panel and you are invited! Join other parents to hear about what kinds of small and big family traditions they practice in their homes. This is an opportunity to share your own experiences and ask questions about different kinds of traditions you incorporate at home to help shape family life. This can include practices and traditions around: Lent and Easter, Advent and Christmas, birthdays, and other holidays. Living into the fullness of the Christian story can be a challenge at the best of times. Come out and brainstorm and get some ideas about a few simple rhythms that you can incorporate into your family life to help connect with God's big story!  

This event will take place at Redemption Church at 7:30 PM.  

Please RSVP with Melissa Horman or Lisl Baker (lisl@pgcc.org or 604-723-7400) to confirm your attendance.
