UPCOMING MESSAGES

Family Life Message Series
This series on family life, both biological and spiritual, asserts that there are elephants in the room, and they have become the family pet! In this series we’ll look at the life of David in the Old Testament and try to dig into the real issues that plague our families and be courageous in dealing with them in the future.

January 26 | The BeLittle Family
1 Samuel 16-17
Belonging to a family and belittling in a family cannot co-exist. How do we foster one value and eliminate the other…

February 2 | Walking on Eggshells
2 Samuel 11-19
Families can easily get into repeating cycles of conflict; in particular, two lies we believe keep us in the never-ending cycle.

February 9 | Out of Bounds
1 Kings 1:5-6
The strength of the family lies in balancing both affection and discipline in a godly way.

February 16 | Dissatisfaction
Genesis 3 & John 15:1-8
Marriage struggles often relate to the unrealistic expectations of one another. Marriages that last and thrive learn how to mature through seasons of dissatisfaction.

February 23 | Wisdom Learned
1 Kings 3:4-15 & 2:1-4
David learned some critical lessons along the way and it had positive implications later on in his family life. Mistakes and missteps only linger if we are unwilling to change.

March 1 | Family Secrets
2 Samuel 8-9
David finally learned two family secrets that are key to smashing elephants. He learned the secrets of dependence on God and giving.
