Way of Life - Families

Don’t copy the behaviour and customs of this world, but be a new and different person with a fresh newness in all you do and think. Then you will learn from your own experience how his ways will really satisfy you. Romans: 12:2 The Living Bible

The Family Way of Life is a new discipleship tool which provides a framework for young families to grow in faith together. Children and adults can explore how their individual stories are part of God’s story.

This series is based on the same core values as the adult Way of Life and will look at the themes of being the body; being a disciple; being a light; being a friend; being fair and being holy. The focus is on learning and developing faith together to reflect God’s image in each one of us.

Each session contains a bible reading, questions to consider, activities to explore, things to discuss and a challenge. In addition, the resource pages contain suggestions for how you might want to record the sessions via photographs, drawings and scrapbooking.

It is our hope and prayer that this resource helps families connect together with the Living God who is ever present and active.
