SOUP GroupSOUP Group pool time

SOUP Group (Supportive Opportunities for Understanding Parenting) is a fellowship and encouragement group for families with children from birth to 4 years. We meet on the 2nd Thursday of each month from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at Emmaus with our families (your whole family is invited).

We have a warm meal, a guest speaker, nursery care for the little one’s after dinner and time for the adults (dads in one room, moms in another) to discuss life with young kids.

For more information contact Kim Decker [] or call Susan Quinnell at Emmaus (507-645-9480).
