Family Devotions

In 2014 we developed a new curriculum for JK-12th graders, so that kids and youth in all grades would be studying the same material at the same time. Along with this curriculum we created a book of family devotions that includes an outline from each week’s lesson, along with discussion questions for different age groups. Our hope is that this guide will help facilitate spiritual conversations among families.
