Family: Finding Who We Are and How We Belong will explore questions like What, exactly, is a family? Is it a married couple with 2.3 children, a dog, and a minivan? Couples without children? Single adults? Friends? Church groups? Colleagues? The notion of "family" encompasses these forms and more. In this study, you will discover how family is shaped and nurtured by our relationship with God, a relationship that encourages mutual growth in love of God, self, and neighbor through our interactions with those whom we identify as "family." This resource helps users explore their questions about family with insights, images, and stories from Scripture.
