Family Matters

We are starting a new sermon series this month called Family Matters.  Family matters to God, therefore, the family should matter to us.  But matters of the family are some of the most difficult to deal with at times.  Marriage isn’t easy.  Neither is parenting.  Sadly, many people find their biggest hurts and anxieties stem from the relationships within the home.  Fortunately, the Bible gives clear instructions about how we should build and sustain our families.  In this five-week series, we will examine the makings of Godly marriages and the practicality of Biblical parenting.  It all starts on February 10. 

Check out our Dating Matters Book or listen to the Family Matters Sermons.
