Single and Parenting group to meet

LEWISTOWN — Single and Parenting, a program that offers practical help and hope to single parents, will be held from 5:30 to 7 p.m. each Monday evening from Jan. 20 to April 21 at the LUMINA Center in Lewistown.

At a Single and Parenting group, parents participate in video seminars and small group discussions that explain how to wisely encourage kids to obey, how to help their hurting child(ren), how to eliminate debt, how to deal with verbal onslaughts and how to figure out what their emotions are telling them. All single parents are invited to attend.

Single and Parenting at the LUMINA Center will run congruent with DC4K, a program for children ages 5 to 12 years. DC4K is a student support group for children whose families are experiencing separation or divorce. At DC4K, kids are engaged in crafts, games, activities, DVD dramas and music and will be engaged in this program while parents are participating in Single and Parenting.

For more information on either or both programs, call or text (717) 437-4946 or call (717) 035-2164. There is no cost for registration. Programs are sponsored by Locust Grove Mennonite Church, Belleville, 3358 W. Main St., Belleville, and the LUMINA Center, E. Third Street, Lewistown.
