Family workshops open to all

  • Print

The Jubilee Mennonite Church is inviting local residents to learn how to "do family well."

The church, located at 365 Edelweiss Cres. in East Kildonan, offered the first Doing Family Well session on April 9, but three more are slated on April 30, May 14, and May 28 from 1 to 3 p.m.

Organizer Anna Marie Geddert, the church’s community ministry director, said the idea for the sessions grew out of the church’s community kitchen program, which began three years ago and has 10 regular members. She said the program alternates between cooking and Doing Life Well workshops with life coaches from session to session.

Geddert said there are several Manitoba Housing projects for low-income families around the church, and she hoped to find another way to help these people.

"It’s open to anybody who would like to participate," she said. "No matter how many kids you have, no matter how old you are, wherever your background is from, we’re welcome to having people come."

Geddert said the topics will be based on the ages of children attendees have, so the curriculum isn’t currently set in stone. She said the topics will be rooted in a positive-parenting philosophy, though.

Geni Lehmann and Kelly McKay will also help with instruction.

For more information, contact Geddert at 204-668-9933 or jmccommunity@mymts.net.
