Getting to the Heart of Your Child - Featuring Dr. Tedd Tripp

sch_pic_2.jpg

Hosted by Hope Presbyterian Church, Getting to the Heart of Your Child is a one-evening seminar based on a talk Dr. Tripp offered to parents at Harvard Business School. It is intended to help parents from all backgrounds shepherd their children's hearts more effectively. Most approaches to parenting focus on managing and controlling behavior. Dr. Tripp’s approach is focused on nurture – on helping the child to understand the motivational factors that push and pull within. This seminar is entertainingly presented, richly illustrated and filled with insights and ideas about how to engage children and deepen their understanding of themselves and others. The event is free and open to parents, prospective parents, grandparents, educators, and anyone who works with and loves children and teenagers.

  • You do not need tickets advance. 
  • Simply register for free at the door.

Prayer for Mission

No meal or worship night...simply prayer. God works powerfully through prayer to build his Church and expand his Kingdom. This is one of the most important things you could do on a Sunday afternoon. If praying for an hour sounds intimidating, don't worry. It will be structured so that we move through different topics and no one is forced to pray out loud. Please Join us!

    Beginning of 7-week Hope Explored Course

    If you could ask God one question, what would it be?

    Everyone is looking for lasting hope in a chaotic world. Why does life often feel hopeless? What is hope and where is it found? You're invited to join an informal 7-week course called Hope Explored which offers you time to consider life's big questions and a forum to ask your own.

    Starting April 26, Hope Explored will be hosted Wednesdays from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM at Garnet Valley Elementary School. We will begin each week with dinner for participants and their children. The environment is informal and relaxed. You don’t need to know anything about the Bible. You can be religious or irreligious. You won't be asked to read aloud, sing or pray. And you can ask any question you want.

    The entire course is offered free as a gift to you and your family. 
    A meal and childcare are provided each week.
