Key Ministry training at Parkside Church

Parkside GreenWe’re pleased to announce that our Key Ministry crew will be offering a free training event for our friends in the Akron-Canton area on Monday, February 24 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM at the Parkside Church GREEN CAMPUS, located at 4520 South Arlington Road in Uniontown. I’ll be presenting along with Carrie Lupoli on the topic Helping Kids With Hidden Disabilities.

Carrie will be sharing strategies for effectively including kids with mental illness, trauma and developmental disabilities into Sunday School settings and offering practical tips for managing behavior for children who struggle with impulse control and self-regulation. I’ll be offering an overview of why including kids with hidden disabilities and their families is so important for the local church, and discussing how common conditions including ADHD, anxiety and Asperger’s Disorder may impact spiritual development in children and teens.

Parkside Green SnowParkside Church has long been a supporter of families of children and adults with special needs. We were honored to have had the opportunity to offer training there a number of years ago, and under the leadership of Kelly Coy, Parkside offers support for families wishing to attend church on Sundays and provides monthly respite opportunities for parents of children and teens with disabilities. We’re very much looking forward to helping Carolyn Arny and her children’s ministry team at the Green Campus establish a similar tradition of serving families impacted by disability at their location.

Training is open to the public, but RSVPs are appreciated by Monday, February 17th to Carolyn at carny@parksidechurch.com or at (330) 899-1232.

Looking forward to seeing you on the 24th!
