Fred Lewis, Associate Pastor at First Baptist Church in Sulphur Springs, and Bruce Welch, Pastor of Education, are inviting grandparents and great-grandparents in the area to a conference designed especially for them. The conference will help those in a grandparenting role, many who are raising their grandchildren, to become better equipped to “pass the legacy”, a valuable resource of love and wisdom, on to their grandchildren. Catherine Jacobs, Founder and Executive Director of “Pass the Legacy” Ministry, will present an informative and inspiring program. The Conference is set for Friday January 11, 2019 from 6-9pm in the FBC Fellowship Hall. A meal will be included. Cost is $15 per person or $25 per couple. Purchase tickets online at ssfbc.org or at the church office, 116 Oak Avenue, downtown Sulphur Springs.
During a KSST Good Morning Show interview, Welch stated “grandparents have a unique opportunity to pour their love and wisdom into the lives of their grandchildren. Children today, more than ever before, need love and time, and their grandparents often have a great reserve of these valuable commodities”. Lewis added “the value structure of older Americans is a resource to be shared. And children love to hear the handed-down stories about their family! If you are blessed to have grandchildren, whether you have them full-time or only during occasional visits, then you can benefit from this conference, and in turn, so will they.”
