Strengthening Families Program

Volunteers are invited to help with Strengthening Families, a 14-week Lutheran Services Carolinas program designed to build communication and bonding skills between parents and their elementary school-age children. The Strengthening Families Program (SFP) helps families come together and learn parallel lessons.  Parents focus on effective parenting and positive discipline techniques while children and youth learn skills needed for success in life. It all starts with a family dinner. The sessions typically last 2½ hours and include parents and children meeting separately to work with group leaders before coming together for shared activities. The next 14-week session begins August 27 and is held at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints on Sam Rittenberg Blvd, West Ashley. Local congregations are getting involved in this ministry in a number of ways, including:  helping to serve the family meal, and providing desserts for the meals. Carpooling is available from All Saints to West Ashley on the nights of the dinners. For more information, see the display in the glass corridor, or contact Louise Deely at louisedeely@gmail.com or 516-662-0274.
