The privilege of raising children is given to parents, and New Covenant Fellowship offers each family encouraging resources to build upon the week’s lessons at home.
Every family with children will receive a Family Worship Guide — Long Story Short or Old Story New, both by Marty Machowski— based on the curriculum used in Children in the Word. This devotional will allow parents — regardless of their teaching experience or spiritual heritage — to lead family worship that will build on what their children learned in Children in the Word, or take them through the entire Bible in a few years’ time even if they do not participate in Children in the Word. The devotional can be adapted for children of almost any age above two.
Young children have a tremendous capacity for memorization, and we desire them to use it to hide God’s word in their hearts. It’s why we provide Bible verse memorization cards that correspond to both the Children in the Word curriculum and family worship guides so that families can hide God’s Word in their hearts together.
