“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.” – Deuteronomy 6:4-9
Westminster’s Families ministry seeks to encourage and equip parents in their relationships with Christ, their families, their church, and their community. We believe that Christ-centered love is the ultimate key to successful marriages and households, and we seek to know Him more deeply and to glorify him in these contexts. Our Sunday school class, which is geared toward young adults and parents of elementary age children, offers topical studies with rich, authentic discussions, driven by Scripture, and focused on the truth of God’s Word experienced in the lives of those in the group. We extend relationship building opportunities through fellowship lunches, family outings and retreats.
As a model for covenant community, we look to the fellowship of believers in Acts chapter 2, who devoted themselves to the teaching of God’s word, to each other, and to worship; were in each other’s homes, and the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.
