- A Few Words on Family Worship -

"These words which I am commanding you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your sons..." (Deut. 6:6-7a; Eph. 5:25, 26; 6:4)
“God is to be worshipped everywhere, in spirit and truth, as, in private families daily, and in secret, each one by himself; so, more solemnly in the public assemblies, which are not carelessly or willfully to be neglected or forsaken, when God, by His Word or providence, calleth thereunto” (Westminster Confession of Faith: XXI. 6).
We hope this simple guide to family worship - updated weekly - will lead your family to engage in this life changing practice.Read: The Joy and Duty of Family Worship by Dr. Payne
