"Love, Marriage, Baby Carriage" is the title of our new message series which began Sunday, April 7. Love, marriage and family are true sources of fulfillment in life, yet many are left disappointed by their experience in one or all three of these areas. Lowering the bar or changing the standard will not solve the dilemma. We need to rediscover the foundation for these important aspects of life so they can be experienced as they were designed, perfect gifts from our Heavenly Father. Come renew the foundation of your relationships and experience the fulfillment only God can give in every area of your life.
