As we finish 2017 and look to 2018, the Bible says we are to both slow down and keep going!
Slow Down & Keep Going

We live in an age of rapid change and confusion surrounding sexuality. Many parents fear for the pressures and dangers their children face in a culture so completely divorced from God’s purpose and plan for sex. In this two part seminar we will provide help for parents who desire their children to grow up affirming and enjoying God’s design for their sexuality. The evening will begin with some great desserts, then move into two parts: In Part 1 we will look into God’s Word to understand the spiritual root of our culture’s willingness to practice and celebrate virtually every form of sexual expression. In Part 2 we will discuss some practical ways to both safeguard your children from the snares of sexual sin so prevalent in our world, as well as equipping them to understand and appreciate God’s purpose for sex and their gendered bodies.
The Presence of Peace

Love has come! John 1:14-18 says, "And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth. (John bore witness about him, and cried out, “This was he of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me ranks before me, because he was before me.’”). For from his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace. For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. No one has ever seen God; the only God, who is at the Father's side, he has made him known.
