Home & Church in Partnership


Discover how both home and church can partner together in passing on the faith to both children and families. Using both Deuteronomy 6 and the Grow Ministries' 10 Guiding Principles for effective child, youth and family ministry, this workshop will explore ideas and resources that can be used and shared in your ministry context.

Hear, O Israel: The Lord is our God, the Lord alone. You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your might. Keep these words that I am commanding you today in your heart. Recite them to your children and talk about them when you are at home and when you are away, when you lie down and when you rise. Bind them as a sign on your hand, fix them as an emblem on your forehead, and write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates. Deuteronomy 6:4-9 NRSV
