St. Peter Lutheran Church will be starting up its Parents Encouraging Parents (PEP) program starting Sept. 20, at 10 a.m. in the St. Peter School building.

This group welcomes parents or caregivers of young children to come and socialize together with their children. The adults will enjoy some time sharing ideas and learning about different areas of parenting while the children enjoy getting together with other kids their own age under the supervision of skilled staff.

The children will enjoy crafts, story time, play time and snack while the parents meet and socialize together. The group meets once a month throughout the school year and welcomes everyone to join in.

Register by calling the St. Peter church office at 356-6528 or visiting the Facebook group page, “Parents Encouraging Parents.”
