Family Foundations bulletin

Sundays at 10:45 a.m., April 3-May 15

God designed our families as the environment for living life! In our families, we give and receive love. In our families, we give and receive instruction. In our families, we are to learn how to give and take, how to get along in life in general. In our families, we learn about acceptance, belonging, and forgiveness. In our families, we learn to take care of each other.

Family begins with marriage. For a strong family, we need strong marriages. In our culture today, marriages struggle. How can we strengthen them?

Most families include children as well. It seems like it is harder and harder to raise godly children in an increasingly ungodly society. Does God give any practical instruction to us? 

As you can see, family matters to God, and even if we protest otherwise, family matters to us. From April 3 through May 15, our pastor will share a series of messages on Family Foundations:

 4/03  Foundations for Family 
 4/10  Marriage: A "Leaving"
 4/17  Marriage: A "Cleaving" 
 4/24  Marriage: "One Flesh"—The Sanctity of Sex
 5/01  Parenting with Godly Discipline
 5/08  Parenting with Grace—Mother's Day
 0/15  Parenting God's Way—The Blessing

Everyone Needs a Church...

To answer the questions of life . . .

Questions like, “Who am I?” “What’s my purpose?” “What is God really like?” and “Why do bad things happen?” Jesus Christ and His church are uniquely qualified to answer life’s most basic questions.

To share life’s happiness...

The precious moments of life are meant to be shared: the beginning of new life together in marriage, the birth of a new child, the baptism of new believers... these milestones, plus the joy of simple pleasures, are enhanced by the community of a loving congregation.

To help face tragedies...

Everyone faces trouble in life: sorrows, disappointments, sickness, death. Needed support and comfort flows freely from those who share a common faith. How much we need one another in times like these!

To teach about God and the purposes He has for us...

Survey after survey reveals an overwhelming belief in God. But what is He like? How do we know Him? God has answered those questions through the Bible, the special book that is the guide for the church.

To share God’s message and help those in need...

We can do more together than we can do alone. God has always called together a community of believers to help one another and to spread the good news of Jesus Christ. His message can bring healing to a hurting world. Yes, everyone needs a church, and at Clairmont Hills, we would love to be yours!
