The Art of Marriage is a 6 sessions DVD based study on strengthening marriages from "Family Life Today"
If you would like to host an "The Art of Marriage" session/retreat at your church, please contact us today. We have the resources you need to host this event. This is a wonderful way for you to reach the families in your church, to strengthen marriages, and to bring couples together for a time of wonderful fellowship.
Sept. 26-29, 2012
The theme for this year's D6 Conference was "ABIDE", based on the scripture John 15:4-5. You may wonder what the connection between Abiding in Christ and family ministry is, but as we learned, this is where family ministry begins. As Richard Ross put it, "Faith at home practices led by spiritually lethargic parents, lead to spiritually lethargic children". We as leaders must equip our parents and help them as we raise up the next generation and teach them that they must have Christ as the center of their lives and in all they do.. Fred Luter said that "our kids can never be what they never see" and "it is obvious to our kids and to everyone around us if the word of God is evident in our hearts and in our homes". He went on to say that"we cannot isolate our children from the world but we can insulate them with the word of God". Pete Wilson reminded us that God never gave anyone an easy task. Just look at Abraham, Moses, Joshua and many others. This task of "family ministry" and raising the next generation is not an easy one, especially with all of the distractions our families and children face today, but we must not forget that God tells us that we are not alone. If we will "draw nigh to Him, He will draw nigh to us" and He will abide with us. We can accomplish the task with His help and with the right training. This is where conferences like D6 come in. This conference is a wonderful tool that has been sponsored by Randall House Publishing along with others such as Focus On The Family, for the last four years. With speakers like Dennis Rainey and Doug Fields among many others, there is a ton of wisdom to be gained from conferences such as D6. "Family Ministry" is a team effort, but when we truly ABIDE in Christ and keep Him as the center of our ministry and teach our parents and children that they too must ABIDE in Him, we can raise the next generation to be followers of the one and only Living God, and His son Jesus Christ. We will then have children who will pass on a Godly heritage that we have instilled in them.
Next year's D6 Conference will be held in Louisville Kentucky in October of 2013. This should be more affordable for the people of our denomination for traveling. We hope that your church will take advantage of this great training. We will be posting more information as it becomes available.
"Pullin' for Sunday School"
The Month of February is celebrated throughout our denomination as Sunday School Month. Many of our churches have different activities throughout the month to promote their Sunday School. Also this is the month that alot of churches send in their yearly contributions. We would like to thank all of you who make this ministry possible. We depend on churches and individuals to support us so that we can in turn help our denomination in the many areas of service which we provide. Again, Thank You!
We would love for you to send us some pictures of the things that your church does throughout the month to
recognize your Sunday School.
