Our Home Is Like a Little Church

Our Home is like a Little church was written to teach preschool children the Christian doctrine of the home as a place of worship where the father teaches his family God's commands and leads them to worship the one true God.
The home is the front line of ministry to children-not the Sunday school or public church gathering. All the practices present in a Christian worship service-the Scriptures, prayer, and praise-should be present in the home as well. Our Home is Like a Little Church teaches this truth by repeatedly putting church and home side by side-on adjacent pages.
God expects parents to teach their children when they sit down for meals, when they drive along the road, when they lie down for bed, and when they get up in the morning. These "pastoral" duties can be daunting so this book also serves as a reminder that these duties are done in light of God's grace shown to us through Jesus' work on the cross.
Parents and children together can read this engaging little book in order to discover what God's plans are for worshipping Him inside their home.
