Build Your Family on the Rock

The young couple gaze into each other’s eyes as he slowly repeats the words, “I promise to be faithful to you, as long as we both shall live.” A tear drop falls from her cheek as she does everything to hold herself together at this moment she has dreamed of all her life.

And yet, the magic moment is fleeting. The months and years go by and something is lost in the relationship. The romance, the tenderness…it just isn’t there like it used to be. Then the doubts begin. “Was he really the right one? Why did he change?” The cracks in their marriage have become noticeable and if something is not done, they will turn into gaping holes which will eventually tear the two apart.

Family is hard. Let’s be honest. Husbands, wives, children – we’re all self-centered and without the right motivation, that “me first” attitude will destroy all our close relationships.

Jesus talked about building our lives on the “rock” of his person and his teaching. This weekend we are celebrating God’s gift of family in the most effective way possible – by seeing what he teaches us about the family unit which he himself instituted. Join us for our Saturday seminar and one of the two weekend worship services. Get your family back on the rock solid foundation it needs to go the distance – Jesus Christ!

Saturday evening worship: 6:00 pm
Sunday morning worship: 10:00 am
