Continuing Legacies with Will Thames
In a generation where more and more young adults leave the church after they graduate, Will Thames sets the example for what a faith journey looks like in the "next" stage of life. Join us as Will shares his gift of music, adoration for his grandfather and love of God's church in this week's episode.
Six Things Every Kid Needs
Amy Jo and Jason talk about their in-person parenting series based on the book Playing for Keeps: Six Things Every Kid Needs. Spoiler alert! Every child needs time, love, words, stories, communities, and fun whether they are in preschool, elementary school, middle school, or high school. We hope this podcast will you get you excited for the series and support you on your parenting journey. Beginning January 30, join Amy Jo and Jason on Sundays from 10 a.m. to 10:40 a.m. in Francis Chapel to learn and grow together. Registration is appreciated but not required, and there is no cost for this series. Click here to sign up.
Join Amy Jo and Jason as they sit down with our very own Rev. Taylor Pryde Barefoot to talk about the Advent season. They invite you to take a break from the craziness so you can encounter God as a family, both at home and at church, through our many offerings in December.
Experienced Parents Offer Encouragement and Wisdom
Learn from parents who have been there, done that and blazed the trail for the rest of us. Amy Jo is joined by two parenting veterans, Nancy Harrall and Ellen Spence, who are here to answer your questions and provide reassurance. Parenting is hard work, but you can do hard things. This conversation will give you the strength, encouragement and humor you need for your parenting journey. If you need a reminder that "this too shall pass", this is the podcast for you!
High School Beach Retreat Recap
This week we are joined by the youth team along with Emma and Jake. We recap our first beach retreat back in two years sharing lots of laughs, memories, and insights from the weekend at Holden Beach. This episode was a joy to record and we hope you enjoy it too!
Giving for God with Allen Walworth
Amy Jo and Jason sit down with Allen Walworth to learn practical tips for talking about giving for God and out of love as a family. He has a wealth of knowledge (pun intended) to share, as well as practical tips and considerations. We're excited about our plans for the new building and are eager to help the church reach its campaign goal so we can make these dreams a reality. Pray with us and learn more about the joy that can be found in giving to others.
