Big Idea of the Series: Often, during the spring and summer, many families use their time off to take a vacation. These trips can be a great opportunity for families to spend time together, show each other love, and model grace to the world. But what if we took this same approach during the other fifty-one weeks of the year? This three-week sermon series discusses both the importance of family relationships, and how parenting is a way for parents to help their children understand God's grace and love.
