Calvary Chapel Eastside is offering a Biblical Parenting Seminar on April 7th, from 6:30PM-9PM. We invite all parents to take advantage of this available resource in our area.
In this seminar you’ll learn how to develop a parenting plan that takes your child’s unique needs into account. Based on the books “Motivate Your Child” and the “Motivate Your Child Action Plan," you will learn how to help children change. Your kids are changing whether you like it or not. The question is, will they change in positive ways or negative ones?
Kids need life skills and now is the time to build them. If you want to know where your child is weak and needs help, just stop for a moment and ask yourself this question, “What tendency does my child have that makes me feel uncomfortable?” Likely you’ll be drawn to a significant heart issue that needs some work.
A children's program is provided to complement what the parents are learning. The cost is $20 per adult, $30 per couple. Register here. For more info or questions, please contact Pastor Abe at email@example.com

Do you have unacknowledged hurts or unforgiveness that is keeping you from the joy and peace God wants for you?
