New Sermon Series: A Little Church in the House, Raising and Strengthening a Godly Household
“The families of Christians should be little Churches; or, Wherever we have a house, God should have a Church in it.”
This is my first shot at our next sermon series. Our elders and deacons agreed on this next subject. So I found this book by Matthew Henry, A Church in the House, Or Family Religion (1704), and made a six-part schedule based on the book. This will also be a good segue to Elder David Meengs’ teaching on Biblical counseling and discipleship.
Scripture texts for exposition to be announced later. Here’s the tentative schedule:
July 20: A True Church, A True HouseÂ (Introduction)
July 27: “Give Ear, O My People, to My Teaching”Â (Doctrine in Family Worship)
August 3: “I Will Tell of Your Name to My Brothers” (Psalm-singing in Family Worship)
August 10:Â “Let the Little Children Come to Me” (Prayers in Family Worship)
August 24:Â “The Sons of Eli Were Worthless Men” (Family Discipline Through Doctrine and Worship)
Everyone welcome to join us for a study on how to raise a godly household. This is not only for those who are raising families, but for single men and women as well. For most likely, you too will be raising families in the future.
