Every child begins the world again. - Henry David Thoreau

This is a place for progressive parents to exhale, connect with one another, have a cup of coffee and learn about issues surrounding our children from various presenters. This is an opportunity to reflect, find support from other parents and take a pause in the hectic pace that is a part of parenting. Come and "fill your tank" while your children are lovingly taken care of in our nursery and Sunday School programs.
