The Bible says in Psalm 78, “We will not hide them from their children, but tell to the coming generation the glorious deeds of the Lord, and his might, and the wonders that he has done.” All throughout Scripture, parents are given the responsibility to pass on the gospel story to their children.

What story is your family telling? What is the overarching story that your kids are seeing played out in your home? How are you creating opportunities for these grand stories of God’s work to be told? Based on your familial habits what story do your children see as important?

It’s our desire as the church to come alongside of you and help you answer those questions in a way that reflects the Bible’s call on our life as parents. The following is meant to be a tool to help you, as the parent, develop healthy habits for family discipleship. As you think about the various facets of the Christian life – it’s our hope to provide suggestions, resources, and a guide to find what fits best for leading your family in each of those areas.

  • Mercy Hill Church Kids Ministry - Family Resource Center - Family Devotions

In the busyness of life, we often want to train our kids to become disciples, but either struggle to find the time or aren’t sure exactly what it looks like to train kids in the Bible. We understand that this is something that we want to excel at, so that our kids are equipped to live out the gospel through their childhood and into their adult life. In light of this, we are providing a basic framework for doing family devotions. Though it may be difficult to start, through consistently viewing the Bible as a family, we make it a priority for our lives, and will definitely see the results in our families, as we live out the gospel. Please click the images below for a list of relevant resources.
