Today, there are MORE step-families in America than there are nuclear-in-tact-families. Blended families have become the norm, and let’s be honest…. Blended families are hard. But you don’t have to figure it out alone!
Join our confidential support group for real-talk on issues such as:
* Custody + legal matters
* Child support + finances
* Teen issues
* Blended families in the Bible
…and so much more.
We meet 1x month for dinner + small group time in the Lehigh Valley. Dinner is FREE for the whole family, and child care is provided. Sometimes there are games + prizes, sometimes a craft or activity, sometimes a movie or teaching video, and sometimes just time to talk. Everything we do is designed to encourage and support you + strengthen your blended family so you can beat the odds! Blended doesn’t have to equal “broken,” and while no two blended families are alike, there is a common ground we share that helps us understand each other, and learn from each other.
When we can’t be together physically, you can find us on social media in our Facebook Group called “Common Ground: Blended Family Support Group for Christian Blended Families” where you are free to post questions, get advice, share successes, and hopefully be encouraged to laugh a little more even when the days are nothing but challenging.
