As a remarried/blended family, you undoubtedly face unique challenges that you may not have expected and consequently weren’t prepared to tackle. The level of complexity of a blended family dynamic can be overwhelming. These issues can frustrate your marriage, your parenting and your step-parenting. Fortunately, these challenges are common to blended families and you can learn a great deal from others who are working through them or have overcome them. Mark & Amy Bundgus, RPC’s Blended Family Leaders, are available to help you with training, resources, and encouragement.

Mark & Amy Bundgus, RPC’s Blended Family Ministry Leaders, will walk you through a series of sessions designed to help you successfully navigate stepfamily life. You can join the class at any time!
