Strong and Healthy Marriages and Families

Hey Westside !

I am so excited about these next few weeks at Westside !  I will be preaching a 7 week series on “Building Strong and Healthy Marriages and Families”  beginning on Mother’s Day and continuing through Father’s Day on June 20th.The series is appropriate for singles and marrieds, young and “not so” young.  We all need to know what the Bible says about God’s intention for us and for those we love and care for.  So, whether you are a grandparent, aunt or uncle, parents, newly-weds or “looking” for the day . . . this series is for you.

The family is God’s idea and it is under a full-on assault in our culture.  The divorce rate is at an all time high.  Children are tossed to and fro in the midst of a severe emotional toll on their precious lives.  The timeless values of scripture are disregarded for “current trends” and “pop culture.”  THERE IS A SOLUTION !!  We can make a difference in our families and in our culture.

Here’s what you can do:
•  pray for me as I prepare to teach each week (and Patrick too – he will be teaching one of the sessions)
•  pray for our church family: that we will all join together in this effort – with everyone participating whole heartedly
•  ask God to put someone on your heart to invite – and invite them !!
•  take several of the invite cards we have printed up and pass them out to family, friends, and co-workers
•  then . . . bring someone with you to each one of the sessions !
•  remember that all of us are part of this, we don’t want anyone to feel left out or think that this doesn’t apply to them, we want each person to feel valuable and part of our church family . . . because they are !

Thank you all, I pray that this series will bring much health and wholeness to our body.

In Him,
