Dear Friends,

Church of the Holy Spirit is excited to announce an afternoon event with nationally known speaker and writer, Jodie Berndt. Mark your calendars for Sunday Nov. 3, 2019. You can learn more about Jodie at her website here.

If you have been a parent or grandparent for any length of time, you know the highs and lows of parenting. So often we wonder how best we can pray for and with our kids, no matter their age. Whether your kids are newborns, grown adults or somewhere in between, every parent seeks God’s best for their children. Jodie will be with us to teach, equip and help us to grow in our knowledge and practice of prayer for our children young and old. 

Jodie’s nationally recognized authority, experience and love for prayer and kids is a real asset to the church. Her books are best sellers on Amazon and have been read by some of our CHS members. In fact, she will have a full set of her books on sale while she is here visiting and equipping us.

Jodie will be teaching two sessions. You choose which one best fits you, or you can attend both. Personally, Beth and I plan to attend both. You must register to attend either or both speaking times.

This free event will offer two different sessions:

Session # 1

  • 12:45 PM: Trusting God with Your Adult Children, with a free lunch preceding the talk.

Session #2

  • 5 PM: Praying Scripture for Your Children, followed by a free family ice cream social. Childcare is provided for this session only, but in a limited capacity. Childcare is on a first come, first served registration basis, so sign up sooner rather than later for Session #2 if you want to utilize our childcare.  

We are so excited and honored to have Jodie come and lead us in these important topics. Normally there is a fee to hear this great speaker, but we are offering this event free of charge. Mark your calendars, register online below and be ready for a great afternoon with Jodie. We are offering this event to all the Roanoke Valley, so please invite friends and family.
