Where Are You in Titus 2?
10 A.M. Session
Discover God’s design for linking the congregation to the home in Titus 2:1–8. Consider your distinct calling as a pastor, an older man, an older woman, a younger man, a younger woman, or a child. Learn how each of these members of the Body of Christ serve the good of one another to the glory of God. Ponder real-life applications for your congregation and family.
Establishing the Family Altar
1 P.M. Session
From the Old Testament (Deuteronomy 6:4–9) to the New Testament (Ephesians 6:4), to the Reformation (the Prefaces to Luther’s Small and Large Catechisms), recognize a consistent encouragement to have home devotions. Review the blessings that God attaches to His Word and the calling that parents have for serving their children’s spiritual needs. Learn practical tips for conducting home devotions.
