The elders of Grace Presbyterian Church in Stuart, Florida and her pastor, Bernie van Eyk, warmly invite you to our Spring Bible Conference, Glorifying God as a Family: Cultivating a Christ-Centered Home.
With all the competing voices insisting on new definitions of marriage and family, this conference will direct our focus to the Bible’s instruction on crucial issues related to the life of marriage, family, and the home. As you make plans to join us our hope and prayer is that, through the study of God’s Word, you may be encouraged in your resolve to live as a family that testifies to the truth, grace, and beauty of the Christian Faith.
