2nd Sunday Family Talks

One of our major goals of the Family Ministry is to strengthen the Monday through Sunday ties in families’ lives - where what happens on Monday influences your family's faith and what happens on Sunday influences your life when you aren't at 4100 Main Street. To that end, we are thrilled to bring an incredible line up of national speakers for our "2nd Sunday Family Talk" series to South Main. These Family Talks are intended to be authentic, inspiring, and informative. All “talks” begin after lunch and wrap up around 2:00 PM.
