Parenting in Faith
Moms, dads, step parents, single parents, same sex parents, foster parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles (anyone who is a caring force in the life of a child) is invited to be part of a new conversation group that has formed on Sunday mornings. Parenting in Faith is a facilitated discussion around a different topic each week, a place where we can really dig into how our faith informs how we parent our children.  New voices are always welcome.  Topics are determined by the interests and concerns of those attending.  

                                            The 2016-17 lineup is as follows:

We are always in need of teachers and learners at SPC, and hope you will consider being one, the other or both. If you have questions, please contact our Associate Pastor for Christian Education and Youth, Rev. John Weicher, at john.weicher@swarthmorepres.org or 610-543-4712 x119.

Hear, O Israel: The Lord is our God, the Lord alone. You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your might. Keep these words that I am commanding you today in your heart. Recite them to your children and talk about them when you are at home and when you are away, when you lie down and when you rise.
 
Deuteronomy 6:4-7
