The Marriage and Family Seminar provides a framework for understanding the callings of each member of the family. We'll focus on the importance of the heart as the wellspring of life and see the power and enablement that come only through the gospel. We'll further examine the biblical roles of the husband, wife, children, and parents. Tedd's wife, Margy, will join him during the Q&A time.

SATURDAY: April 7, 2018

9:15 – 10:00 am Registration, Coffee & Tea

10:00 – 11:00 am | Getting to the Heart of Family Life

We will examine the biblical teaching that the heart is the well-spring of behavior, Proverbs 4:23, “Above all else guard your heart, for it is the well-spring of life.

11:00 – 11:15 am Break

11:15 – 12:15 pm | What is a Family?

We will look at a transforming vision for family as a theological, sociological and redemptive learning community

12:15 – 1:45 pm Lunch Break / Book Table / Fellowship

1:45 – 2:45 pm | Husbands Love your Wives

I will examine not only the command to love and the ways that is modeled by Christ, but also the primary impediment for husbands, namely our compulsive self-love motivates us to avoid self-sacrifice out of self-interest. The motivation and enablement for this kind of love is Christ and the gospel.

2:45 – 3:00 pm Break

3:00 pm – 4:00 pm | Wives Respect your Husbands

I will examine the fact there is no command to wives for agape love or their husbands, rather there is a command to respect. Again we will look at the primary impediment for the respect and submission scripture enjoins, which for the wife is fear.

SUNDAY: April 8, 2018

(for Sunday morning services, no charge or registration required. Same message at 1st and 2nd service with Q&A in between. Attending our first service may enable you to make it to your church's worship in time.)

9:15 – 10:15 am | Question & Answers w/ Dr. & Mrs. Tedd Tripp

10:30 – Noon | Sunday Worship: Children Obey (children's ministry available, infants to 5th grade)

We will look at the Ephesians 6:1-3 passage and focus not only on the necessity of obeying and honoring, but also focusing on ways for parents to present this calling in a manner that is persuasive and compelling to kids.

Noon – 1:30 pm Food & Refreshments in the Fellowship Hall
