Starting on Wednesday, June 5th, the 3rd summer of Family Worship begins. Family Worship is a weekly gathering dedicated to inter-generational worship and community missions. We are serious about spending our lives around God’s Word and prayer, and sharing the Gospel with neighbors and friends. Every Wednesday, June through August, Family Worship will gather in the Fellowship Hall at 6:30 pm. All people are welcome. All ages are included. All guests are invited.
At Family Worship, we sing, pray, and fellowship. Songs are printed in a booklet for you to sing at home what we sing together. This year, prayer will focus on three monthly themes: prayer for the family in June, prayer for the church in July, and prayer for the nations in August. Fellowship will include introductions and testimonies in the meeting, then staying around for members, parents, students, and children to talk and play together. In addition, you will hear about a summer book club and community projects.
Family Worship ties the home and church together under the authority and unity of Jesus Christ. I love Don Whitney’s motivating words about it. “Having your family in a Christ-exalting, gospel-centered, Bible-teaching local church is crucial to Christian parenting. But it is not enough for conveying to your family all you want to teach them about God and your beliefs. Moreover, it is unlikely that exposure to the church once or twice a week will impress your children enough with the greatness and glory of God that they will want to pursue him once they leave your home.” (Family Worship, p. 14)
I hope you will join us.
