Linking Home and Church:
A class for parents on the power of family rituals and creative play between parents and children. Join us this Sunday for a parent series on family traditions and creative play led by parishioner Ginger Williams Cook. Creative play helps children learn about and interact with their world, and gain the mental, physical and social skills necessary to succeed in their adult lives. In this first class, we will get to know each other and discuss family rituals and traditions. This series will offer parents ways to break out of their routines to be more playful and spontaneous and to have more joy as a family. Ginger Williams Cook is the former Studio Programs Coordinator and Master Teaching artist at The Mississippi Museum of Art and currently a full time artist and creativity workshop coordinator. Location: Gray Hall, 2nd floor, Room 214.
