Intentional Parenting Seminar

Join us for five fun, insightful and FREE sessions on parenting. You'll come away with ten "actions" and resources that will equip you to lead God's blessing of children. While you enjoy the sessions, your children (birth - 8th Grade) will enjoy a fun-filled event of games and inflatables. It's a "win" for the entire family!

You are promised a great day with the JCCC worship band, down-to-earth presenters and life-changing information. You will also have the opportunity to mingle with friends during sessions and/or during the optional lunch catered by Moe's ($5 per lunch to be paid at the door). Register for lunch when you get your ticket. Lunch registrations must be made by November 14.

All registration must be done through the following link:
