Conference-Family Life: Marriage & Parenting

2018 GBC FEB BODYLIFE CONF ROTATOR IMAGE 640x598Marriages and families need regular infusions of God’s grace and not self-focused strategies. This is true whether you’ve been married five months or fifty years, whether you have one child or several. It is God’s grace, through the life-transforming power of the gospel, that produces God-glorifying marriages and families. Pastor and author Jim Newheiser will over concrete hope and bring biblical principles to bear upon marriage and the various stages of parenting. His teaching, as with his writing, promises to be Christ-centered, honest, refreshing and practical.

We hope you’ll join us for this time of teaching. Breakfast and lunch on Saturday will be provided. Children are welcome to attend. Childcare will not be provided.

The cost to attend the conference is $10.00 per person. Continental breakfast and a catered lunch on Saturday are included in the cost. You may register on Sunday mornings beginning January 7, or register by mail. For questions, please contact the church office at 925-676-1584.
