Recently we’ve been hearing about Prince Harry’s controversial book “Spare” where he published how he feels about his imperfect royal family. Adam, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, David are a few Bible characters that had dysfunctional families. It’s interesting to think that Jesus grew up in a family with younger brothers and sisters in an unusual family situation. Jesus can understand our struggles.
Our family experience can make a positive or negative difference in our lives. No matter how old we are we can still be carrying pain and regret from our family experiences. Come to Rockwell Church to be encouraged to find help and healing from and/or for your imperfect family life.
We meet at 10:15am Sundays at 93 Midway Drive in Virginia, MN. Kids and adult Sunday School at 9am.
