First Friends Church of Canton, Ohio in association with The Legacy Coalition is hosting Grandparenting Matters! Conference. Grandparents are incredibly important to their grandchildren and are uniquely positioned to influence them spiritually and otherwise. In all the research that has been done over the years on spiritual influences in children and youth, grandparents consistently come in third, right behind mom and dad. Yet little is being done to challenge and equip this huge group — 30 million strong — of potential influencers. This conference will encourage and equip grandparents and provide them with tools to impact the lives of their grandchildren.
Based in Riverside, Calif., Legacy Coalition was launched in January, 2016 as a subsidiary of Awana Clubs International. Its goal is to see grandparenting ministries start up in hundreds of churches across the country and for millions of Christian grandparents to become more intentional about leveraging the love and influence they already have for their grandkids.
The conference will be held Friday and Saturday, June 2-3, 2017 at First Friends Church located at 5455 North Market Avenue, Canton, Ohio. For more information, visit their web site at www.firstfriends.org or phone 330-966-2800.
