So many dreams and expectations can be centered on family, but what happens when children leave home? An empty nest can elicit devastating loss, even while celebrating the very things families have been praying and preparing for. Familiar patterns, routines, and loyalties are tested as relationships and circumstances change. Hearts can be exposed in new and surprising ways, both through the good and the painful. Whether you are going through this stage yourself, or thinking about others in your church, join us to explore how God speaks to empty-nesters.
