Family Worship

February 10, 2008

Our family has had a family worship time with the children for the past several years.  I would say our goal is 4 times a week, but oftentimes it actually occurs about 2-3 times a week due to schedules, etc.   When my daughter was still a toddler, we used a children’s Bible for this time, reading a story and asking questions about it afterwards.  As the children have grown, we have incorporated catechism questions from the Catechism for Boys & Girls.  We sometimes use books during the holidays that help our children to understand what Christmas and Easter are truly about or read brief missionary accounts.  We read Scripture, we ask questions, we pray, we review our catechism and recently we have begun singing hymns.  I have seen my children grow in their understanding of Scripture.  I watch them as they see how important faith is to their Mom and Dad.  As they learn more about who God is, they want to know Him more.  They love this time, and often will initiate it when we have perhaps forgotten or feel there is not enough time left.

Does your family worship together in your home?  What works for you?  What have you seen God use to grow your children?

Our church is having a special emphasis this year on family worship.  As a church, we are asking all families to participate, and tools such as weekly family worship guides (scroll down to the bottom of the linked page to in order to see the list of weekly guides) are being provided to assist each family in conducting family worship times.  Each family worship guide also has a link where you can listen to the music for the weekly hymn if you are unfamiliar with it.

I would love to hear from you about how your family worships together!
