Spiritual Parenting – Prayer Encounters

Here is the information we’ve shared for the fall 2013 Wednesday night adult class schedule at First Presbyterian Church in Edmond, Oklahoma.

Class Name: Spiritual Parenting – Prayer Encounters
Led by: Eunice Menja, Shelly and Wesley Fryer
Description: In Spiritual Parenting we will use Pastor Paul Burns’ short book, “Prayer Encounters: Changing the World One Prayer at a Time,” to grow deeper in our relationship with Jesus as well as our families. Anyone who is or has been a parent or grandparent is welcome to join our group focused on prayer, study, and fellowship. Visit our class website spiritualparenting.us for updates. Visit Paul Burns’ website prayerencounters.com.
If you live in or near Edmond, we hope you’ll join us on Wednesday nights for Spiritual Parenting during “The Gathering” which starts on September 11th!

Love is an Orientation

During the January – March 2013 session of “The Gathering” at our church, Eunice and I invite all past members / attendees in our “Spiritual Parenting” class to attend the class Curt Gruel and Rev. Matt Jones are going to be leading on “Love is an Orientation” by Andrew Marin. This class is going to raise many important issues and provide an excellent forum for us to discuss them together. Here is the planned course schedule:


I’ve helped Curt and Matt setup a special website to facilitate online discussions, which I invite you to visit and follow. The website is faithdiscussions.org. Please check it out to learn more about Andrew Marin, his book, and this course.


First Fall Meeting: Wednesday, September 12th

“The Gathering” at FPC will kick off tomorrow on Wednesday, September 12, 2012, and Eunice and I will again co-lead our Spiritual Parenting class. We will start at 6:30 pm following dinner. If you are interested in a fellowship and study group of parents of all ages (we have young parents and grandparents too!) we invite you to join us!

We’ve created this website this year to share news, links, our schedule, and reflections about the book we’re studying and other topics. Check back here regularly for updates. If you are on Facebook, please “like” our Facebook community page. We are setting up our site so as new information is added here, it will automatically post to our Facebook page. We want to keep you informed and continue to build a supportive community that prays for each other throughout the week.

Please use the links at the TOP of this page to check out our schedule and curriculum for this year. You’ll want to purchase a copy of “Opening Your Child’s Spiritual Windows: Ideas to Nuture Your Child’s Relationship with God” by FPC Edmond member Cheri Fuller.  Note this book is also available in eBook (ePUB) format, which will work on an iPad or Nook. (We don’t think it’s available for Kindle yet.)

We hope to see you Wednesday nights this year for Spiritual Parenting! Please don’t hesitate to contact us if and when you have questions!
