Supporting the Ministry of Parenting

June 6, 2023
7:00 to 8:30 p.m.


Parenting is a vital ministry, but it’s often under-supported. Many Quaker parents long for nurture and community.‍

In this conversation-oriented workshop, we’ll first hear lessons learned from four different approaches to supporting parents: a Zoom-based mutual support group model, an integrated system of support in the context of a single pastoral meeting, a yearly-meeting-wide listening project focused on the needs of parents and families, and a community outreach approach that built community among parents in the church's neighborhood.‍

Then, we’ll have a chance to ask questions and delve deeper as a group: how can Quaker communities best support and nurture parents as they engage in the holy work of raising children?
