If you are looking for some ways your church might incorporate times where the family can stay together to worship, grow and learn about God together in church, here are five places you might start.
These ideas come from a variety of different church backgrounds and traditions, so they may not ALL work for your ministry context, but chances are one might strike a chord and you will be able to begin working toward more and more times where the family experiences faith formation together with their faith community.
Family Worship Sundays – Many churches have begun offering times of Family Worship, often once a month or on fifth Sundays, where the family stays together and worships as a unit. These Sundays should not be confused with Children’s Sundays or times where kids perform for the church. While these are special times for the church as well, they are more focused on children than they are families.
