It is from this context of spending time together as a family that led me to consider something: how often do we come to church and "split up" our families? Hear me carefully: I am in FULL FAVOR of age appropriate ministry (my background was Children's ministry after all). But what are we doing as the church to promote worship as a family. So with that in mind, we will begin to have Family Worship at Smyrna on Sunday nights. EVERYBODY will be in the sanctuary together as a family, learning to worship. We will still have Children's church on Sunday mornings and our full youth & children's activities on Wednesday nights. I'm excited about bringing our families together to worship on Sunday nights.
By the way, I love my family dearly. I try to never take for granted the gift of their love and lives. Its the greatest joy of my life to be her husband and their Daddy!
