July is Family Month at IFC!
The word “family” can mean so many things. For some, it’s the traditional dad, mom, two kids, the family dog and white picket fence. For others, the word “family” carries with it bad memories, broken marriages and unfulfilled promises. Regardless of what your family experience has been, we believe that God desires for us to have success in our families and relationships and find freedom in those areas of our life. Whether you have a spouse and kids, haven’t started a family yet or your family consists of your friends, Dream Team or Life Group, there is something for everyone during Family Month.
