News & Events
Sunday Evenings at 6 - The Family Project
The church is hosting a study of "The Family Project" DVD series every Sunday night at 6pm-7:15pm, running from April to June.
The Family Project is a series by the Focus on the Family ministry which looks at the current state of the family in our society and then investigates how God has designed families to actually operate.
From their website at TheFamilyProject.com :
The breakdown of the family has made an impact on virtually every segment of society. Divorce, abuse, abandonment, addictions, poverty – all of these can be tied to the disintegration of the family. But there is hope in the Gospel of Jesus Christ and in God’s blueprint for the family. The solution to so many of our society’s ills can be found in a wholehearted investment in stable, healthy families.
As a result, Focus on the Family Canada is presenting The Family Project. The Family Project will help people unpack the irreplaceable role of family in today’s society and equip families, churches and communities with a deep understanding of how to live out God’s design for the family. Through the documentary Irreplaceable and the DVD study kit, individuals across Canada will come to know that it’s never too late to be a better mother, father, sister or brother.
Come join us for the interesting 30 minute weekly video, and stimulating 30 minute discussion which follows!
NOTE: A children's program is also provided free of charge.
