Parents Fall 2017
Parenting with Strengths
October 11, 18, and 25
Using Biblical texts interwoven with the StrengthsFinder assessment and materials, we’ll explore a theology of parenting asking, “How can we be the parents that we were created to be using our God-given gifts and strengths?” And consequently, “How might we parent our kids so that they are living into the unique people God created them to be?” RSVP to Marisa.

Find a Small Group
Being an active part of a small group is one of the best ways to grow in Christ with the support of fellow believers, and to get connected with others at UPC. Groups usually have 5–12 members and meet in group members' homes to study God's Word, apply it to life, have fellowship, pray for each other and serve the Seattle community. Find an open small group online. Contact: Brandon.
