On the fifth Sunday of any month (2017:  Jan, Apr, Jul & Oct), the Family Life Ministry focuses on educating parents and strengthening families by offering current-topic classes during the 9:30 Sunday worship hour.  Just sign in your preschool/elementary kids on the first floor of the Student & Children’s Center, or send your middle/high school kids to the youth center on the second floor, and attend the class of your choice in the same building!

Family Life Sunday
Sunday, July 30th

At The Lakeway Church we care about families.   We are committed to walk with you through the adventure of parenting.  Life throws a lot of challenges our way, but we believe the years of parenting can be a worthy adventure.

Building Sexual Integrity in Our Kids
The ‘sex talk’ is not enough.  If you are honest it probably wasn’t enough when you were growing up.  If we want our kids to embrace their sexuality with Christ-like integrity we can’t check it off our to-do list.  These conversations have to be an ongoing part of our parenting.  Fun huh!

On July 30th we are bringing in Laura Gallier, a Biblical Sexuality Expert, to help parents learn how to build sexual integrity in their kids.

Laura Gallier’s Bio:

Laura Gallier is a seasoned speaker and author known for her insightful presentations and resources on the topic of sex-related values and romantic relationships. As opposed to a “sex is bad” approach, she gives compelling reasons for God’s sex-related standards, helping young people and families heal from past mistakes and embrace a biblical, hope-filled perspective of sexuality. www.LauraGallier.com, @lauragallier

We will meet upstairs in the Student & Children’s Center.

REGISTER HERE (Registration is not required, but signing up in advance will help us know how best to prepare).

What is the plan for kids?   We have a great program planned for the kids while the parents meet upstairs at 9:30.  So bring your kids and drop them off downstairs in the Children’s Center.  Kids nursery through High School are welcome.  At 11:00 am, parents and kids are invited to worship together at the Contemporary Service in the Fellowship Center.   We will have childcare at 11:00 for nursery and preschool.  Elementary on up are invited to worship with their families on this Sunday.

A word about family:  Let me be clear about what we mean by ‘family’.   Family Life Sunday is for single parents, blended families, intact families, and everything in-between.  This event is open to parents in the community as well.  Grandparents and other adults who want to support parents are welcome too.

I hope you can make it!
