“Parenthood – Discovering the Journey as it Unfolds” pamphlets

This pamphlet is a resource aimed at reaching non-churched people who attend groups such as “Playtime”, “Mainly Music”, “MOPS” or “Toddler Jam”.  The wonder of a newborn child and the joy of watching little ones grow is often a cause for new parents to think through their life values.  Parenting is a foreboding assignment and there is a hunger for good resources that help, and a caring community with which to share the journey is attractive.  The tract is aimed at this audience and invites new or young parents to ponder the mysteries of life and the source of hope that God brings to those who seek him.  It is deliberately generic in format and aims at not being to “preaching” while at the same time inviting people to explore a relationship with Jesus.

These brochures are available for free if you send a self-addressed, stamped envelope to PO Box 112, Epping NSW 1710.
