#HOMEchurch Day 6. So… you cannot gather with others at your church building today for worship. No problem. As an ordained minister in the Church of Jesus Christ, I hearby consecrate your HOME as a temple unto the Lord, your dining table as an altar of worship for you and the members of your household! YOU CAN DO THIS!
Here is a simple but powerful liturgy you can use to lead your family in a special time of worship at HOME:
1-Gather everyone at the dining table.
2-Welcome everyone to worship!
3-Pray, inviting God’s Spirit to lead & move through this time together.
4-Sing a simple praise song together, like “God Is So Good” or “Jesus Loves Me”. Or lookup a song on YouTube to play while everyone listens or sings along.
5-Ask if anyone has anything they want to give to God today – any kind of gift they would like to offer Him – any kind of area in their life they would like to submit to Him…
6-Read John 9:1-41 together. Either one person can read it all, or you can take turns reading around the table.
7-Discuss the story around the table using the following questions:
- What does this story teach us about God?
- What does it teach us about ourselves?
- If this story is true, how does that impact our lives?
- Who is someone we can each tell about this this week?
8-Ask a volunteer around the table to pray, committing your household and yourselves to the Lord this week.
Voila! You just led your HOME in worship! WELL DONE! Now enjoy a day of rest and togetherness with your household :-)
