We believe that both individuals and family units exist to make known the supremacy and glory of Jesus Christ. We believe that we start close, in the home, so that we can bring the gospel to those around us and to all nations. We have been given a mission, join us in it!
Below is a summary of our family discipleship strategy at FBC St. Francisville. For full details, reasons behind the strategy, or tips and suggestions with these areas please see the Family Discipleship Packet.
Gather as a family weekly with FBC St. Francisville in Sunday worship gatherings, family based D- Groups, and Wednesday night Family Worship.. Also, plan weekly intentional family time, away from the distractions of everyday life, to grow in your love and enjoyment of each other.
Grow as a family as you strive to grow in spiritual maturity both individually and as a family unit. Strive to grow individually by daily Bible study, prayer, and meditation. Grow as a family with daily/ weekly family devotional/worship times. Strive to pursue prayer daily and for families with multiple children, focus on what each child needs to grow in their specific journey.
Give as a family by sacrificially and cheerfully stewarding the resources God has given, including your time, talents and spiritual gifts, and finances. Invite your children into the financial giving and allow them to choose ways to use family time for service and glorifying God.
Go as a family by constantly being engaged with the lost around you in an effort to preach the gospel to them. Think through how to use your everyday lives to speak God’s truth and the hope we have in salvation. Our work, school, and neighborhood should be different because our family is there!
We encourage you to sit down with your calendar and plan times to Gather, Grow, Give, and Go as a family!
