St Joe Community Church appreciates the work of organizations like Advance America, who help represent the interests and concerns of families and children in the public arena, especially before local, state and national government institutions. One of AA's helpful resources is its annual voter guide that helps voters understand contemporary issues and the diversity of opinions held by elected officials and candidates.
The voter guide is a non-partisan educational tool, meaning that the guide does not endorse a candidate or party. St Joe Community Church does not endorse candidates or political party affiliations, and voters use this resource according to the dictates of their own conscience.
Sermon series focuses on identifying “elephants in the room” that can hinder healthy family communication.

FORT WAYNE, INDIANA – St Joe Community Church today announced its 2018 Family Life Series entitled, “Elephant-size Miscommunication: Biblical principles for achieving authentic and effective family communication.” The sermon series studies King David’s adultery with Bathsheba that introduced elephant-size barriers to honesty and authenticity between him and his family, his officers, his countrymen and, mostly importantly, his God. But the series also reveals the hope that David found in God’s forgiveness, the same mercy that is available to us today, some 30 centuries later.
