God's Family

The last year has been one of unprecedented isolation and we want the 2021-2022 ministry year to be one of unprecedented family and fellowship. Additionally, we hope that this is a year in which “prodigals” come home to the family. God’s family is relationally intimate. God’s family is generous. God’s family has a mission. God’s family has a home. God’s family has a meal. God’s family invites. God’s family welcomes. God’s family grows. God’s family matures.

This week, Pastor Paul uses the Parable of the Prodigal Son to reveal how God’s family has a gracious Father by beckoning both older and younger sons to “come home.”
