MINISTRIES

Parents

God's Word says about the instruction of children:

"And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise." - Deuteronomy 6.6-7, ESV

At Harvest Bible Chapel we recognize that the local church is not to supplant the family in being the primary spiritual influence in a child's life. Our aim is come alongside parents in heling to equip and encourage in their God-assigned role in discipling their children in following Jesus Christ.

One way we do this is by encouraging family instruction and worship in the home. Pastor Brett recommends the following resources to help you in establishing these practices in your home:

The Gospel Story Bible by Marty Machowski

Old Story New by Marty Machowski

Long Story Short by Marty Machowski

Family Driven Faith by Voddie Baucham, Jr.

Family Shepherds by Voddie Baucham, Jr.

Family Worship by Donald Whitney

Another way we do this is by giving your child a take-home sheet specially tailored to that weekend's lesson in Sunday School or Kidz Church. This can be used a tool in home instruction and/or family worship time.
