On November 11, more than 400 years ago, a group of lost and beleaguered travelers covenanted together “in the name of God, Amen.”
This covenant, known as the Mayflower compact, was the basis for a new republic that would be blessed beyond all peoples. Blessed to be a blessing.
This event explores the blessings of covenant communities in society, in our churches, and most importantly, in our families.
This is a full-day event for the whole family. There will be time to work on your own family compact as you consider questions like: What are we aiming towards? What has God called our family to do? How can we build stronger families and stronger communities for the days that are to come?
