Resourcing your family for the summer
We want to resource you over the summer months to help your family continue to grow in their relationship with Jesus. Being a disciple is more than a one-time decision; it is a lifestyle led by having the mind of Christ. Below you will find Bible studies that look at the essentials of the faith and book recommendations.
So whether you are resting at home, hitting the road, or sitting with your toes in the sand, we have something for you!
Family Bible Study
We have provided you with a bible study that you can lead your family through. Our Family Discipleship Pastor, Lee Taylor, will walk you through the essentials of the faith. Each video looks at a different topic and will help prepare you for a discussion with your family. Click the link to down the discussion guide.
Turn and Trust
You may have heard someone say they have always believed in Jesus. We believe that is not what the Bible says about having a relationship with Jesus. Watch the video to see how Lee suggest you help your family understand what it means to turn and trust.
The first and greatest commandment is to love God with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength.
Love your Neighbor
What does it mean to love your neighbor? Is Jesus talking about your literal neighbor? And how do I love them in a practical way?
Purpose: Go & make Disciples
No matter what your “day job” is, as a Christ-follower you have on calling above all else…make disciples. Explore this essential with your family and talk about how you can live this out together.
Being baptized is your proclamation to the world that you are a disciple of Jesus.
The ability to talk to God isn’t something that should make us nervous or scared. Jesus taught us how to pray and what we should pray for.
truth: Obeying God’s Word
Jesus has given us an example and a road map for living the Christian life. We want to not just read or listen to the Bible, we need to live it out where we live. work, and play.
Being part of a physical church body is essential to being a healthy disciple of Jesus. When you belong to a church family, you experience the fullness of the Family of God.
Generosity is the overflow of the thankful heart of a disciple. We know that God gave everything so that we could have a relationship with Him. The natural response is to give back.
