3.1 Christian Resources: Article – How to Do Family Worship

Family worship–which can be more involved than homeschool or family devotions–may be something you practice daily, semi-weekly, or possibly only when the family is unable to attend formal services. Whether long or short, the same areas are usually covered, and often include a teaching time, worship in song, and a prayer time. Read the article to see the well-organized how-tos.
