SALISBURY – Hood Theological Seminary’s child advocacy class and Families and Communities Together will hold an Empowerment Summit on Thursday from 6 to 8 p.m. This free event will be held in the Aymer Center on the seminary campus, 1810 Lutheran Synod Drive.

Parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, guardians and child advocates, plus children and youth, are welcome to join in exploring ways to empower families and children.

Among the topics to be explored at the summit: What can be done together that will make a difference in the lives of families and children? What are the needs of children and families in the Salisbury area? How can we empower children?

“The Empowerment Summit will provide a valuable forum for individuals, churches, community agencies, parents and all others interested in the welfare of children,” said Dr. Mary Love, adjunct professor of Christian education at Hood Theological Seminary. “Participants will network, identify needs and explore ways that we can, together, become better advocates for children and advance children’s interests within the church and in the community at-large to make a positive difference in their lives.”

Hood Theological Seminary is a graduate and professional school where intellectual discourse and ministerial preparation occur in tandem within the framework of a diverse community of faith.
