About Family Ministries

Families come in many shapes and sizes.  The strong family is built around people who depend on each other for emotional, physical and spiritual support.  God is relational and when He created mankind, He created us to be in close connection with other human beings.

Families are the places where children can best be conceived, loved, taught and helped. Family was meant by our Creator to be a safe haven where all can grow toward physical, emotional and spiritual wholeness.

Family is not an easy place to be at all times, and families can play a vital role in creating and maintaining our wellbeing and happiness.  All too often family is not ideal.  When families struggle to thrive or even survive we can help by accepting, encouraging, educating and nurturing them back to health.
