About the Family Bundle

“You win when you bundle!” That’s what the insurance and cable companies tell us. If that’s true with our finances, it’s even more true with our faith!

Convinced that healthy families are the backbone of a church on mission, this fall we are bundling family discipleship in a way everyone can use. Through three “mini-series,” we’ll study what God says about our priorities, relationships, current trending topics, mental health, and more. Relevant pop-up events and conferences will be also available to provide additional tools, encouragement, and hope.

Discussions on life’s joys and challenges in all ages and stages of life.

Resources

Websites & Apps

Pure Hope | Trying to find the words to address the topic of sex? Wondering how to navigate this sexualized, digital age? Find resources for talking to your kids or to your spouse.
