Giveaway: The Worship of God conference – free registration/lodging OR Free audio album!

worship

Update: If you can’t attend the conference in North Carolina, this giveaway is still for you!  You can choose to receive 35 audio messages from the conference!

When we worship, we do it as a family.  We don’t want to send our noisy little ones to the nursery, and we don’t want our children to attend a separate children’s service.  Yes, we might hear more of the sermon if we did, but we are doing important work here in the pews, and these days pass quickly enough.

We are blessed to attend a church where the rest of the congregation agrees.  There are no dirty looks when the baby acts up.  If the toddler acts up, there may be suppressed laughter, but we’re OK with that.  Sometimes we’re the ones laughing at other people’s children.  Our congregation loves children, and we are all thankful for the opportunity to present ourselves and our children before the Lord in formal worship.

Churches like this can be hard to find, so it’s good to know about the NCFIC – the National Center of Family Integrated Churches.  They have an interactive list of churches all over the US and even the world where families are allowed and encouraged to worship together.

But they do a lot more than that.

Free resources

The NCFIC offers many other free resources.  There is a long list of free audio messages for the church and family.  There are many free video messages as well, and enough articles to keep facebook busy for a long, long time.

Many of these free resources are samplings from past conferences by the NCFIC: Building a God-Centered FamilyGospel Centered MarriagesSufficiency of Scripture and more.

More resources

They also have a store with an extensive collection of books, audio and video messages, and instant downloads.

Conferences

The Worship of God conference will be in Asheville, NC on Oct 31 – Nov 2.  Who wants to go?!

Description from the NCFIC website:

At this conference, we will seek to examine and experience the worship of God and to say with king David, “Lord, I have loved the habitation of Your house, and the place where Your glory dwells” (Psalm 26:8). Our starting point will be to establish that God must be worshipped in the way He has designed, not the way man desires. Then, we will study the various categories of biblical truth that teach us about worship. Is there any more important activity for the human soul? Is there any more important category of Christian theology? Is there anything more powerful in the hearts and lives of men? Is there anything more pivotal for home life? Is there anything more important in church life and community life, than the worship of God?

Here is part one of a five part online instruction video series entitled The Family That Worships Together hosted by Scott Brown with interviews from Joel Beeke, Paul Washer, Conrad Mbewe, Doug Phillips, Kevin Swanson, Jeff Pollard, Joe Morecraft, Michael Gobart, Boyd Dellinger, Fikret Bocek, Marcus Serven, Paul Thompson.  These videos are deliberately not exhaustive but are interview compilations on key subjects designed to whet your family’s appetite for the glorious and expansive subject of our highest duty – to worship God.

 

If it’s not practical for your family to attend the conference, this giveaway is still for you: You can choose to receive the complete Worship of God audio instead!

  36. tim2jones says:

    I would really enjoy hearing about, “Why does God destroy nations for their worship?”
    This is a fascinating topic in light of a nation with so many forms of worship and denominations.
    Such a diverse nation as America can struggle with accepting/ rejecting religious tendencies based upon preference and emotion rather than truth.

Don't just think it: say it!
