Kids Pre-Birth Through Age 3

Beginning Families of Faith

A class for parents, godparents, and grandparents of children awaiting baptism or recently baptized. The class focuses on helping adults pass on a living faith to children. Participants will review what they want for children, faith formation in children and practical ideas in passing on a trusting relationship with God.
