CHILDREN'S CORNER


Our Family Room
 
The NAD Children’s Ministry and Family Ministry departments have teamed up to bring quick, relevant, and useful information to both you and your children in light of these uncertain times. The goal is to invite every family to take part in understanding the lesser-known side-effects that constantly being at home can have on both parents and children. First, Drs. Claudio and Pamela Consuegra will share nuggets of practical information to promote discussion and healthy family relationships. This will be followed by an engaging children’s activity hosted by Sherri Uhrig and Gerry Lopez.

The 15-minute streams will be viewable on the “Our Family Room” Facebook page and will later be shared on both Family and Children’s Ministry YouTube channels.

For additional resources for every segment, check out Family or Children’s Ministries websites.
