Dads play an important role in the growth of their children. Engaged dads can help children to be secure, confident in their surrounds, develop good social connections, and play an important role in the development of the social and emotional wellbeing and academic achievement of young people. Dads also play a key role in the connecting of our community.
This Sunday we have an opportunity to be grateful for the role that Dads have played in our lives. As a community we are also thankful for the important role that men play within our community as fathers, coaches, teachers, and leaders and look forward to the Celebrating Dad’s Day Breakfast on Friday. We give thanks to God for the many men who make our families and community rich places to grow. We are reminded that God invites us all to be in a nurturing relationship with him as a loving, gracious and ever-present Father.
