Parenting

Single & Parenting 
Single parenting can feel like scaling a mountain, day after day, with no rest.  Under the weight of job, school, church, social and emotional demands, many single parents are perpetually close to burnout.  Single & Parenting can help - at no cost to you!

Single & Parenting is offered as a self-paced, independent 13-session video-based Christ-centered course.  The videos and personal exercises can help you learn to cope with the challenges of being a single parent and assist in creating healthy single parent homes.  A complimentary workbook is available from the church (for those who prefer pencil and paper rather than on-line books).
