The Church As Family.jpg

It was one of the most scandoulous things Jesus did in his ministry. Jesus invited his disciples to become a part of his church--a new community in which the family is reconstituted; where all those who love and follow him are to be known as brothers and sisters in Christ. And like Jesus, we are quick to love, forgive, bear each other’s burdens, and show grace to one another. In The Church as Family, Pastor David shares how Christians are called to live as the family of God.

Sermon Title: The Most Dangerous Place on Earth


It may be hard to believe, but research shows that most physical, emotional, and sexual abuse happens in the home. The church can’t afford to be silent when it comes to raising awareness and protecting the most vulnerable among us. In The Most Dangerous Place on Earth, Dr. Eric Seibert (Messiah College) encourages us to respond in a Christ-honoring way to the victims and perpetrators of domestic violence.
