Xenos Parenting Meeting

Xenos' monthly Parenting Meeting offers practical, Bible-based teachings on different parenting topics. You can ask questions and join in on small discussion groups at the end, as well as enjoy time with other parents. While the teachers come from a Biblical perspective, all viewpoints are welcome.

Meetings are at 9:30am at the Xenos Warehouse (600 E. Oakland Park) the first Wednesday of the month during the school year. Limited childcare is provided. For more information contact parentingmeeting@xenos.org.
