Are you feeling stressed or worn out and in need of some guidance or a listening ear? Consider becoming part of the Parenting in a Pandemic Support Group! This group, sponsored by the Desert Southwest and Cal-Pac Conferences, is led by four clergy parents, including our own Rev. Misty Howick and Rev. Lynn Bartlow. Click here for more information.
