Our families (home and church) are crucial to developing us into who we will become. They shape how we go through life as well as our understanding of who God is. Family is the number one influencer in a young person’s life – and where they spend the majority of their time. In the four-week series, Family Matters, learn to navigate family, faith, and discover who you can be to create a healthy family dynamic with others – whether you are related to them or not.
