RSVPs are super helpful as we hire childcare. The group is designed to allow families to share sacred space and a potluck meal together at the start. Often we light a chalice, sing a song, and/or tell a story together. Then the kids play in childcare while parents explore the topics together. If we get enough teens, they can have their own social activities or play with the younger kids in childcare. The younger kids tend to enjoy having time with our teens!
Here is a rough outline of how it might go: Welcome & Song Intro on the theme of the evening Small candle "chalice" lighting Storytelling Dinner Kids depart (to childcare) Parent discussion (Introductions) Resource table Goodbyes
Just ask in comments if you have questions or need help finding the venue!
