BUILDING A FAMILY LEGACY!
Our next young-adult study is a series for you and your family, “Building a Family Legacy,” a DVD-led presentation that speaks to families of all ages and stages.
Dr. James Dobson, the leading Christian family advocate for the past forty years, teaches with humor and clarity about the role of the parent and the spouse in today’s family! He is clearly aware of the challenges we face in a culture that confuses us with a variety of values and opinions. “It's harder now to raise kids than it's ever been because the culture is at war with families,” Dr. Dobson said. “I feel ‘Building a Family Legacy’ contains the most important message of my career. There is nothing more important than parents passing on a generational legacy of faith and values to their children.”
Pastor Kevin Lantz says that Dr. Dobson’s approach to family, marriage, and parenting has been the strongest influence he has had to model his own loving response to love and serve his wife and to raise his children! “You will not be disappointed by the time we share in this study!”
The study will begin Wednesday evening, September 12, from 6:00 – 7:10 p.m.This early hour allows you to bring your children to the Church for the All Stars 4 Jesusprogram, run by our caring staff. The evening with our children includes a dinner at 6 p.m. in the downstairs hall, followed by creative Bible lessons. We will also have a nursery available for children 3 and under during our lesson time.
Individual titles for the study include:
