Teen Family Lunch
Northwest parents of teens and teens are invited to our first NW teen family luncheon. The event will be held right after church today, February 20, in the cafeteria at Butler.
This will be a time for teen parents to fellowship, be encouraged, and be inspired. As you know, it takes a village to raise children, and we are grateful to take this journey together. We strongly encourage all parents of teens to join us. Siblings of teens are also welcome to join us for lunch and hang out in the gym.
