Way of Life for 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 and can shape how their families reflect God’s likeness in the churches and communities they live in.

This series is based on the same core values as the Way of Life for adults and youth. The essential theme of this resource is the concept of ‘being’ or ‘becoming’ the people created us to be.

The Family Way of Life will look at the six 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 the theme, things to discuss and a challenge.

In addition, if you would like to keep a souvenir of your family sessions, the resource pages suggest different ways of recording the event using photographs, key thoughts, doodles 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 and to find out together who God has created us to be.
