The Bible says that children are a heritage from the Lord (Psalm 127:3). Whether they join us through birth or through adoption, the arrival of a new child into our family calls for celebration, thanksgiving, and a renewal of our commitment to train future generations to hope in God (Psalm 78:4-7).
Toward this end, Kossuth holds a "Growing Families" Sunday each year, including a family commitment ceremony and reminders from God's word about the importance of family discipleship. God created the family to function like a little church, and he designed the church to function like a big family. The "Growing Families" Sunday gives both family and church the opportunity to reaffirm our commitment to these callings.
