Join the  Church of the Brethren Parent Connection Facebook group, a place where parents can offer support for one another as they share resources, ideas and challenges related to parenting, particularly as everyone navigates the current COVID-19 environment. As a private group (posts can’t be seen outside the group), it provides a safe, faith-based place where parents can connect, ask each other questions and talk about what has or hasn’t worked for them. The group is moderated by the Church of the Brethren’s Children and Family Committee. Contact for more information.
