A weekend focused on God’s design for the family.
Family is God’s idea. He is into relationships. God delights in community. Deep at our core, we value family intimacy, close-knit relationships and strong comradery with one another.
For you, how do we thrive as a family whilst maintaining our own identity? We all talk to each other, but rarely do we communicate. How do we set appropriate boundaries? How do we develop our own family identity?
For parents, are you looking for a step by step guide to parenting? Is there a one-size fits all framework? How do we understand each child’s unique personality? How do we create a home they desire to belong to?
For spouses, are you building a marriage of your dreams? Or did you just stop at the altar? What happened after you said “I do”?
For teenagers, are you struggling with relationships between you and your parents, you and your siblings? What is a Christian family even meant to look like?
For young adults, are you in the process of still discovering who you are and who God has called you to be? How do we grow in our individuality and independence while surrounded by the pressures of parents, work, study, relationships, and the stresses of life?
Packed with biblical insights and practical applications including extended Q & A, we invite you to join us for our Family Blueprint Seminar this weekend at Australia for Christ Church with guest speaker Brett Ryan from Focus on the Family Australia.
