Mark and Lisa Scandrette, authors of the new book, Belonging and Becoming: Creating a Thriving Family Culture, will be coming to Threads Church in May for a special weekend conference! Threads is partnering with several other local churches and also inviting our community to join us for a high-impact opportunity to invest in our families.

This event has the potential to really impact not only our churches, but also our community. The Scandrettes approach can challenge our tendency to make an idol of the family, helping us re-orient our families towards discipleship and mission in the way of Jesus. The practical wisdom can also help bring structure to families that have little structure and focus to families that are scattered and overly busy. Their gracious, non-judgmental tone brings hope to broken and unhealthy families. And since their approach is rooted in the gospel and a radical obedience to Jesus (without being ‘churchy’), it is practical and accessible to all and it might also help those outside the church to invite Jesus into their lives and let him be the Lord of their families!“ 

“Now more than ever, we need a new vision for family that is creative, intentional, soulful and globally aware… a thriving family, where each member is loved and supported to become all they were made to be for the good of the world.”
~ Mark and Lisa Scandrette
