Family Life

Leader: Annie Sellers
The Family Life Department of the Ephesus church promotes, coordinates, implements, and evaluates programs that cultivate spiritual, social, intellectual and economic development for all family groups in the church. Family Life is a ministry of grace, acknowledging that the family was established by divine creation as the fundamental human institution. This ministry focuses on people in relationship. It is concerned with the needs of married couples, parents and children, singles, and all members of the wider family as they pass through life’s predictable stages and contends with unexpected changes in their lives. Ephesus sponsors seminars, banquets and other fellowship-building events.
The family was established by divine creation as the fundamental human institution. It is the primary setting in which values are learned and the capacity for close relationships with God and with other human beings is developed.
 
Family Life Ministries is a ministry of grace which acknowledges as normative the biblical teachings relating to the family and holds high God’s ideals for family living. At the same time, it brings an understanding of the brokenness experienced by individuals and families in a fallen world. Thus Family Life Ministries seeks to enable families to stretch toward divine ideals, while at the same time ever extending the good news of God’s saving grace and the promise of growth possible through the indwelling Spirit.
