God designed family worship to be a vital element of a Christian family’s spiritual practice. Daily times of worship help families draw near to God and grow in their faith. The Practical Guide to Family Worship Study Set encourages, prepares, and equips heads of households to lead their families in times of worship over eight video-based small group sessions.
“In 1677, the members of a Puritan church in colonial Massachusetts covenanted together ‘to maintain the worship of God’ in their families. Their commitment reflects the longing of believers of all ages to raise their children in the way of the Lord so that God’s covenantal purposes will be fulfilled (Gen. 18:19). These studies are full of encouragement and instruction for fathers and mothers so that, by God’s grace, they can lead their families to serve the Lord (Josh. 24:15) and future generations will hope in God (Ps. 78:4–8).”

“If we want to bring up a godly family, who shall be a seed to serve God when our heads are under the clods of the valley, let us seek to train them up in the fear of God by meeting together as a family for worship.”
— CHARLES SPURGEON, A PASTORAL VISIT
Family worship has been at the heart of worshiping God since biblical days. There have been eras in Christendom that a father could experience church discipline for not leading his family in regular worship at home. But those days are so far removed from today that many Christians have never heard the term “Family Worship.” Far fewer have seen it modeled.
