Today's families need so many things! Where do we go to find direction, hope, and encouragement? We turn to God's Word and God's people! This series is intended to counter enemies of the home, such as the conflict of roles, addictions, entertainment, and more. Best of all, it encourages us to pray for our families. God desires to help us take courageous, decisive action so that we can more readily refuse to believe the lie that there is no hope for our marriages and our families. In short, this study is intended to bless marriages and foster healthy families.
This ten week study titled, "Fighting for Your Family" in Room #9 beginning on Wednesday, September 5, 2018. Video sessions start at 6:30 p.m., study and discussion follows.
Week 1 (9/5): Rebuilding the Foundations.Rooted in the creation account we have the basis for marriage and the family. When we move away from these truths, we see dysfunction and decay.
Week 2 (9/12): A Mother's High Calling. Mary, the Mother of Jesus, was given a particularly unusual task, but she points us to the joys and sorrows of motherhood.
Week 3 (9/19): Dads in Charge. Our first father Adam failed in Eden because of his passivity. In the creation account we see how the male role works in the marriage relationship.
Week 4 (9/26): What Marriage Is, and Isn’t. We look at the “owner’s manual” to answer several questions.
Week 5 (10/3): Till Debt Do Us Part. Couples and singles have to ask some hard questions about lifestyle, income and expenditures. Seven biblical principles can help us keep our perspective.
Week 6 (10/10): Children, God's Special Gift. “Ministry to children is the single most strategic ministry in God’s Kingdom.”- George Barna. Children today face many lies - but they need not face them alone! We discuss how value is not just in appearance; how morals are truly formed and what children need - not just to be good - but to be godly.
Week 7 (10/17): The Enemy Inside Your Home. We are in a fierce battle for the family because we are opposed by forces outside the home, but perhaps an even greater enemy exists within our homes: The power of modern technology such as computers, cell phones and iPads.
Week 8 (10/24): The Hurt And Healing Of Abuse. Almost always abusers appear to be kind and charming. And yet, because of unresolved issues in their lives, they can travel down the road to abuse. The causes of abuse are many and varied.
Week 9 (10/31): The Power Of Praying Parents. Whether a child is like a prodigal son or a self-righteous older brother, parents pray that the hearts of their children are toward the Lord.
Week 10 (11/7): Playing For Keeps. Society holds a number of myths about marriage. When we take our marriage vows, we make a commitment! May God lead us.
