2015-16 Family Devotional Guide
Connecting Church & Home
At Sovereign Grace, we're committed to encouraging and equipping Christian parents to disciple their children and connect "church life" with "home life."
Our new Wednesday-Night children's curriculum, The Gospel Story Curriculum, features a great way to connect parents and families with what's taking place on Wednesday nights. Along with each Wednesday Night children's lesson, parents can lead their children through a complementary family devotional that correponds with each week's lesson.
The devotional is Long Story Short: 10-Minute Devotions to Draw Your Family to God, and contains 78 weeks of devotions through the Old Testament, with an emphasis on seeing Jesus in the Old Testament. Each week contains five 10-minute devotions. The devotional also corresponds with The Gospel Story Bible.
If your family would like to follow along with each Wednesday Night lesson, the following guide will help you keep track of where to be each week (and which weeks to take off and "do your own thing"). We believe this is great curriculum for children on Wednesdays, as well as a great opportunity for families to regularly engage God's word together at home.
