The primary longing that led to the creation of Forming Us was a desire to know other parents in the NDPC faith community. As parents, we are often so busy shuttling our kids here and there and tending to other personal, work and church responsibilities, we neglect our own relationships. But what a saving grace this NDPC parent community has been these past three years–to show up regularly to one another, whether in person or on Zoom, and to get to share and hear how we truly are, to be in dialogue about the real joys, struggles and questions we experience as our children grow into selfhood, and we grow into parenthood.
Whether you’ve been with us regularly, have been sporadically, or are new to NDPC or to parenthood, we’d love for you to join us! We’ll begin our year together sharing stories – about who we are, where we are in this season of life and parenthood, and how we got here – into this humanity, this family, this church community and this class. All are welcome!
