Leading "It Starts at Home" Parenting Bible Study

Page 1

You can find It Starts at Home series exclusively in your RightNow Media Bible Study Library. Direct link: RightNowMedia.org/Media/Series/2280

Who is shaping what your kids believe? Our children can grow up smart, athletic, popular and polite but lack a vibrant relationship with Christ. Church alone cannot teach them, we must start at home. But many parents feel ill-equipped to develop the faith of their children. 

The It Starts at Home series has six sessions. You will be leading your group through biblical and tangible ways that parents—couples, single parents, blended families and grandparents—can build a legacy of faith for their children.  

Take a look at an overview of the It Starts at Home series in this trailer (You will stream the series itself for your group time from RightNowmedia.org.)

Each session includes interviews with everyday parents talking about their own doubts, fears and desires. Check out an example of one of the real-life stories featured in It Starts at Home. Tony and Mary Anne candidly share the struggles and questions they have when their son becomes disrespectful and rebellious.

Take a moment to think of the parents you know. Who may have questions about how to nurture their child's faith? Who may be struggling with rebellious children? Who could you reach out to as you start this Bible study?

You will use downloadable Leader's Guides and group handouts available online to dig deep into powerful teaching from Gary Thomas, Matt Chandler, and Kurt and Olivia Bruner. Take some time in advance to consider the Bible study questions and come up with personal examples to encourage discussion. 

But it takes more than watching a series like this to feed good intentions. The inspiration, discussion and encouragement you experience during your group time will be combined with practical ideas to take action. Take a look at this family night activity any parent can do. This example and others are in your Leader's Guide and as handouts.

As you prepare to lead this Bible study series, are there any ways I can pray for you or help you facilitate?
