“Knowing that 60% of people want to make sure their family is not burdened by tough decisions, yet 56% have not communicated end-of-life wishes, this discussion will help you gain insight into the wishes and needs of aging parents through guided conversation that can make a differnce,” say the McMullins. “As age progresses, living an ethical will can be as important as any other will. We will share how to find extend the conversation to an ethical will that includes sharing values, blessings, life lessons, hopes and dreams to create a meaningful gift.”

About the Growing Families Ministry at the La Cañada Presbyterian Church

We believe parents and grandparents play a significant role in the spiritual development of their children and grandchildren. This is why we say “the primary place Christian education happens is in the home.” Knowing that parents often feel ill-equipped to lead their children spiritually, we created the Growing Families program. Growing Families is a monthly seminar type class for parents and grandparents led by a variety of people; some are experts in the field of child development, psychology, and education while others are parents who offer to others what has worked for their families.

The class typically meets on a Sunday morning at 9:30 a.m. in the Fellowship Hall. Children are invited to participate in our children’s ministry programs during that time.
