Dig Deeper with family and friends from home
Christian discipleship begins in the home. One of the greatest responsibilities is the call of parents to disciple their children. Throughout Scripture God called families to speak of the gospel at home and remind one another of the steadfast love and faithfulness of God (Psalm 78; Deut 6:4-8; Eph 6:4). This family worship guide is one way to help you develop family rhythms of worship throughout the week. Family schedules vary, so relax and remember to have fun with the small moments God gives you to talk to your children or spouse about the gospel. We don't think there is a one-size-fits-all approach, but discipleship at home is a lost art. We want to help you enjoy worshipping Jesus together at home once again.

Call to Worship (everyone together)
"My heart exults in the LORD; my horn is exalted in the LORD. My mouth derides my enemies, because I rejoice in Your salvation. There is none holy like the LORD: for there is none besides You; there is no rock like our God." ~ 1 Sam 2:1-2
“Great is Thy Faithfulness"
Read or sing these words together.
Great is Thy faithfulness, O God my Father
There is no shadow of turning with Thee
Thou changest not, Thy compassions, they fail not
As Thou hast been Thou forever wilt be
Great is Thy faithfulness, great is Thy faithfulness
Morning by morning new mercies I see
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided
Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me
Summer and winter, and springtime and harvest
Sun, moon and stars in their courses above
Join with all nature in manifold witness
To Thy great faithfulness, mercy and love
Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth
Thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide
Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow
Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside
Hearing and Learning God’s Word
1 Corinthians 1:1-9; 16:13-14 (one person read the Scripture aloud). (Background: Acts 18).
Questions for Discussion
1. What were the five big problems in the local church in Corinth?
2. If Paul were writing to Trinity today, what problems so do you think he would address?
3. What pattern does Paul follow with each problem he addresses?
4. Pick on issue that you're dealing with. Consider how Paul might apply the gospel to that situation? How does this gospel focus make your grateful for Jesus' resurrection?
Scripture Memory for September
“Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good! Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him Oh, fear the LORD, you his saints, for those who fear him have no lack! The young lions suffer want and hunger; but those who seek the LORD lack no good thing.” ~ Psalm 34:8-10
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name; Thy Kingdom come; Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil; for Thine is the Kingdom, and the power and the glory forever. Amen.
