Families Called to Love
The Christian Home Month resource is for family ministry leaders, ministry teams, and council chairpersons/coordinators in local congregations. It is designed to help local congregations develop and strengthen faith in the home and observe Christian Home Month. Although Christian Home Month is typically celebrated during the month of May, congregations may choose any month of the year to focus on the Christian home and its key role as a center for faith formation.
Our theme for 2017 is: Families Called to Love. Over the past months, through the tumult of the presidential election in The United States and the establishment of a new administration, children, youth, and adults have at times felt excluded, concerned with the deep differences dividing the country, angry at those with whom they disagree, caught up in name-calling and loss of civility. At times, it may seem that we have forgotten how to cast the wide net of love that Jesus challenges us to cast upon the world.
This downloadable PDF includes worship service resources, a retreat plan, and devotional activities for families as they foster a climate of love in their homes. We trust you will find something in this resource that will inspire, encourage, and affirm you as you continue in the important work of family ministries.
