Statistics report that divorce rates in Blended Families are between 60-80%. We understand that Blended Families often experience challenges. The sheer number of influences in the lives of each Blended Family member indicates that there are bound to be conflicts.
The Blended Families Ministry was designed to provide useful tools, support, and ultimately point people to THE ONE (Jesus Christ) who has all the answers.
Our hope is that the families we serve will not only SURVIVE, but THRIVE!
It has been said that "Blended Families don't have a family tree - they have a family forest!!"
Each person in the Blended Family is uniquely created AND there are many multifaceted relationships involved...step-parents, step-children, step-siblings, half-siblings, step-grandparents-aunts-uncles-cousins, biological parents, adoptive parents, foster parents, the list goes on. It's easy to see how life in a blended family can, at times, become complicated.
Since each person and each family is unique, the Blended Family Ministry at 3Crosses believes there are limited "cookie-cutter" answers for how to blend your family. However, in learning to listen to and follow Jesus through the challenges we face together we are confident that the Lord will be faithful to transform our lives, the lives of our children, and the lives of others around us.
We firmly believe Jesus at his promise when he said: "But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid." -John 14:26-27
