POLO ~ A Program for Parents of Little Ones (parents with children under age 6)
Fall 2017 POLO Retreat ~ September 1-2 at Krislund
POLO is having our first family retreat at Krislund Camp and Conference Center. For parents of children 6 and under, the whole family is welcome to attend as we get away for a special time of eating, playing and sharing fellowship together. In addition to family time, childcare is provided to give parents two sessions together to discuss, share and learn about navigating this crazy time of life with the peace and joy God meant for us.
Click on the forms below for all the details.
POLO is a group of parents who started getting together after realizing that all of us felt a common isolation in this unique time of life. Dinner, drinks, movies, parks, crafts, team trivia, group projects, birthday parties, this year we’ve discovered that it doesn’t really matter what we do together. Simply having a group of friends whose lives are as ridiculous and messy as ours is a gift to us and our kids. Therefore we want to share and always be inviting others like you to join us too.
When: August 1, 4:30-7:00 pm
Where: Circleville Park (off of Circleville Rd.)
What: A BBQ & potluck fellowship in the park with the whole family.
Bring: 1) Something for your family to grill & drink.
2) A side dish to share.
3) Church will provide grilling items, utensils, plates, etc.
Who: Any families with a child 6 or under. Feel free to invite any parents who could use a group of friends like ours.
During the Program Year …
Parent’s Night Out
Every 1st Tuesday of the Month
Our main gathering each month, when we drop off the kids at childcare and dinner provided by SCPC and walk to dinner & drinks together at a different local restaurant each month. There is no program (religious or otherwise) to attend. The goal is simply to get to know each other better, share our stories, and build friendships in this unique time of life.
Considerations For Kids
1) You MUST register (forms here) before arriving. This helps us prepare child care, emergency info & dinner for the little ones.
2) Consider the LOGOS Program if you have children over 6.
Childcare is limited to children 6 and under. If you also have older children consider enrolling them in SCPC’s LOGOS program, a ministry for 1st-8th grade. Please be advised, this is not a drop in program. Participation in LOGOS is expected each week, not only on POLO nights. Program info & registration paperwork can be found here.
