As parents, we cannot outsource the discipleship of our children! We all long to see our children standing strong in their faith but did you know that you are the most influential person in their lives? They need to see our faith in daily life, not just on Sunday morning. Arlene Pellicane will help us leverage our influence as parents as we learn to pass our faith to the next generation. Bring your questions and talk it over!
