Growing Faith at Home
19 March, 2019
See this week's TAKING FAITH HOME page - button on the left. During our Shepherd of Souls sermon series, over the next few weeks (beginning July 12), our usual Growing Faith at Home resource will be replaced by the Taking Faith Home resource.
GROWING FAITH AT HOME is a weekly lectionary-based resource to help your households live, share and celebrate faith together each and every week!
- Looking for a way to link Sunday worship with household faith formation Sunday to Sunday?
- Want to provide resources to help parents and grandparents pass on the Christian faith in their homes?
A resource that connects weekly congregational worship with the faith life of the home.
Where does GROWING FAITH AT HOME come from?
GROWING FAITH AT HOME is developed by the Lutheran Church of Australia department, Grow Ministries
Is GROWING FAITH AT HOME only for families with children or youth?
People of all ages can use the devotional resources (Bible readings, prayers, blessings) in their personal or couple ‘quiet times’.
Small groups, ministry teams and committees can also benefit from using the Faith Talk questions for spiritual reflection and focus.
Using GROWING FAITH AT HOME to its full potential requires more than simply photocopying the resources and distributing them to select households. It has proven to be of most benefit when reinforced through Sunday worship, promoted to households on an ongoing basis and supplemented with practical teaching and training.
A [Congregational users guide](https://www.growministries.org.au/wp-content/uploads/sites/15/2018/06/GFH-A4-congregational-users-guide_2018.pdf) and [Home user's guide](https://www.growministries.org.au/wp-content/uploads/sites/15/2018/06/GFH-home-users-guide_2018.pdf) have been developed to help you introduce the resource to your congregation and support its use over time.
