SEPTEMBER 9 - 10, 2017

Are you married? Are you a parent? Do you know someone who is? Do you want to communicate better and learn to resolve conflict biblically?  If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, this conference is for you! The 2017 Family Conference will address common problems and help us to live more peacefully within our homes. Learning together within our church community, we can help grow families that influence our culture for Christ rather than see our families influenced by our culture. 

Don't be misled by the session titles and assume they are only for parents with children in the home or married couples. We all have people in our lives who will benefit. Come to be equipped with wisdom to share and help. From young single adults through honored seniors, the Bible has truth that, when applied, grows and shapes our character. Hope to see you there! Invite a friend, too.

SESSION 1: TEACH THEM DILIGENTLY

There are many parenting books available today. You probably own a few. With all of your parenting training, do you really know how to use the Bible to teach and discipline your children? This session will help you learn how to use scriptures more effectively in your parenting and in your interaction with children..

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 9
SESSION 2: Teaching CHILDREN to Communicate Biblically
5:45PM

Learning to communicate effectively is a skill that will follow our children into adulthood. Good communication builds good leaders and good relationships. The younger generation spends a lot of time communicating via social media. Let's help them learn how to communicate with words in a way that honors God (adults will learn principles for their own lives in this session!).

SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 10
SESSION 3: Resolving Conflict
8:30AM & 10:30AM SERVICES

There's no way around it. Conflict is a part of life. How do we respond to conflict? What is at the heart of it? How do we make every effort to maintain unity even when that may involve causing some conflict? Lou will offer biblical teaching and practical advice on how to resolve conflict.
