Family Connect is BACK!
It just might look a little different!
What is Family Connect?
Family Connect is a free family event where families gather to build connections with other families in the community. The intentional activities, lessons, and discussions help to strengthen children’s character development and support parents in positive parenting strategies.
We believe that connections happen around the dinner table. We serve dinner in a family-style environment where families can eat together and enjoy a meal that they didn’t have to cook themselves!
