Sons are indeed a heritage from the Lord, children, a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the sons born in one’s youth. Happy is the man who has filled his quiver with them. Such men will never be put to shame when they speak with their enemies at the city gate. Psalm 127:3-5
Family PACK, our families ministry at Topeka Bible Church, is a Christ-centered oasis for families, whether busy parents who are leading their children to life in Christ or parents who are now parenting adult children, or grandparents. We use the “easy button” logo because we know parents' lives are busy. So we try to make things easy!
WHO WE ARE
