Garden City Seminar: Honoring Your Parents

As part of the Dysfunctional Families series, often the way our culture teaches adults to make peace with hurt from family of origin is to distance one's self from parents and forgive at a distance and with lots of boundaries. This approach may not be as biblical as we think. Boundaries are defined differently in Eastern culture and biblically as well. This seminar will examine how to honor one's parents as an adult and bring an Eastern and Biblical perspective to a difficult topic.

Membership Class

After Meet & Greet, on Sunday, June 2 from 6:00 - 7:15 PM, we'll have the membership class in the Seminar Room (upstairs in the youth wing adjacent to the youth room). 

This step will replace the requirement for members to listen to the sermon series and will also have 15-20 minute Q&A session. This is intended to supplement the interview process so that a prospective member can hear from elders and staff about what the DNA of Garden City is about. It would be great for you as deacons to attend with a prospective member in your LG and then you can immediately do a brief membership interview afterward. Contact your LG leader or Fred Mok if you plan on attending!
