Karma Service for Families

The Karma Family meeting provides families and newly married couples the opportunity to learn about the problems and challenges of married life that they may be exposed to during marriage and how to deal with them. The meeting also provides an opportunity to learn about the problems of raising children at different ages, how to understand and deal with them, avoid wrong practices in education, and increase the awareness of parents and mothers about these difficulties.  Our goal is to build a Christian house on the rock by activating the family altar, uniting the family around reading the Bible in one spirit, praying together, and enjoying the word of our Lord. The Karma family also organizes many different activities, such as trips and conferences, to provide an opportunity for joint family activities to renew the mindset and engage with other families supporting acquaintance and communication together.
