"As a father of two young kids I get the challenges and joys of parenting today. I want my children to grow up knowing that God loves them for who they are, as they are, and that Jesus loved them all the way to the cross. I strive to have a youth and family program that teaches that and meets parents and youth where they are in their walks of faith. So join us for Sunday school each week at 10:15am; put your 2nd grader into a 1st Communion class; have your 7th or 8th grader join our special education and Confirmation class, or have your teen join in our youth group. And as a parent, get coffee with me or another parent to share the joys and burdens of this particular chapter of life. We are here for you whether you are a single parent home or a two parent home, whether you are grandparents raising kids or any other of the multifaceted ways that we raise young people today. And if you are a youth struggling with your faith and life, you will find a home here with other struggling, honest teens trying to live God's love in the world the best we can. Can't wait to see you here!"
