It is no secret that families have more influence over their children than anyone else. This is by God's design! His design is that parents utilize this influence to take the leadership role in the spiritual development of their children (Deuteronomy 6:4-9). The responsibility of the church is to come alongside the family and equip them to succeed in this God-given task (Ephesians 4:11-16). In order to effectively accomplish this task, we have adopted a specific family ministry strategy entitled Legacy Milestones. Additionally, Woodlawn Baptist Church challenges families to accomplish this task through two specific means:
CAPTURING GOD MOMENTS - This simply means pointing out the activity of God to your children. When the Lord gives you new insight into His Word, answers a prayer, meets a need or gives you an opportunity to speak His Gospel to a co-worker be sure and point these things out to your children. This reminds your children that the Lord is active in His world and builds them up in their faith.
FAMILY WORSHIP - This is an intentional weekly time where the family gathers together to spend time in the Word and in prayer with one another.
