For 2021, we are continuing to provide a basic Family Worship plan to help enable our families to more regularly worship together during the week. In each weekly bulletin, we will provide a Daily Bible Reading plan from “A Daughter of the Reformation”, weekly questions from the Heidelberg Catechism, and a hymn for you to learn together.


Week 4:


Weekly Hymn:   654 O Jesus I Have Promised



Heidelberg Catechism–

  • Q3 From where do you know your sins and misery? /

Answer: From the law of God.


  • Q4 What does God’s law require of us? /

Answer:  Christ teaches us this in a summary in Matthew 22:

Love the Lord your God
with all your heart
and with all your soul
and with all your mind.
This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it:

Love your neighbour as yourself.
All the Law and the Prophets hang on these

two commandments.
