Make your church more family friendly.Be the kind of church that families want to attend, where the church’s dynamic faith invites families who will then bring their friends. Vital churches need all kinds of families: two-parent families, blended families, boomerang families, adult children of divorce and their families or lack of families, single adults whose family is the church, grandparents parenting again, childless families, and children with three legal parents. With practical helps and suggestions for ministries, worship, small groups, and even facilities, author and family expert Linda Ranson Jacobs will help you create a welcoming place for everyone.
