Called "Parents, Teens and Money Matters," the 50-minute workshop will take place at 7 p.m. on Sept. 16 at Resurrection Evangelical Lutheran Church, 1981 Graham Road, Stow.

The workshop is presented by John Hill, CLTC, FIC, a financial representative with Thrivent Financial for Lutherans in Kent.

"Parents, Teens and Money Matters" uses dialogue, activities and games to open up conversation about money and the values that affect money choices. Parents and youth ages 11-14 attending this workshop will: increase their understanding of stewardship; learn how to make intentional choices about sharing, saving and spending money; and talk about money and values in their family.
