We will learn how to build up our own faith in unity with others and to help build the faith of those around us. We will explore chapter by chapter to see how Paul's love for the Corinthians can show us today how we can build a well-constructed dwelling place for the Holy Spirit, and how we may be found "guiltless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ." Begins TODAY 8/21/16 @ 10:55am in W242, cost $5.00. Taught by Don Knapp.

Whether you are married or single, this series will give you the tools you need to properly build your family foundation now according to God's blueprint for dynamic living.

Guest speakers: Drs. Paul and Virginia Friesen were married in 1976 and are the parents of three young women, two of whom are now married to wonderful, godly men. They have been involved in family ministries for over 35 years through family camps, church staff positions, speaking, consulting, and writing. In 2003, they founded Home Improvement Ministries (www.HIMweb.org), a non-profit organization dedicated to equipping individuals and churches to better encourage marriages and families in living out God's design for healthy relationships.
As the lead resource couple at Home Improvement Ministries, the Friesens regularly speak at marriage, men's, and women's conferences in the US and internationally, as well as local family and parenting seminars, and have an ongoing ministry with professional athletes. Paul and Virginia both have Doctorates in Marriage and Family Therapy from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary.
The Friesens have authored over ten books and curriculums on parenting and marriage, including Letters to My Daughters, In Our Image, Raising a Trailblazer, Before You Save the Date, and most recently, The Marriage App.
Paul and Virginia's greatest joy in life is knowing that their children are walking in the Truth.
