bottles-bricks-close-up-748777_12What are “DISKYPELSHIP” Classes?

DISKYPELSHIP classes (notice the play on words!) are classes offered online, using SKYPE (popular software that allows group video calling) . This allows homeschooling students to receive biblical teaching and instruction, without the limitations of location/distance. Eternal Purpose Ministries began the firstDISKYPELSHIP classes in Term 1 of 2018, and the feedback has been great so far. With more interest in the classes from homeschooling families around NZ – we can now offer a broader range of classes from Term 2 onwards (see class options on the right). Classes are available for students age 15-18 (please enquire if your child is just outside these ages). Families who register before 31 March 2018 will receive a donations rebate on any donations towards class costs.

Journey Through The Bible – New Resource!

unnamed

Scott Brown (Director of the NCFIC) has just completed a Family Worship resource titled, “Journey Through the Bible”. Here’s what he has to say about it…

Journey Through the Bible came about from our family worship times as we read the Bible together as a family.

As our children were growing up, our family made it our practice to read the Bible from cover to cover. We did this for many years. Some of our children learned to read by reading progressively more words as we read the Bible together.

We took turns reading going around the circle. The little ones would repeat one or two words that we coached them to pronounce. Those who could read would read one to five verses and the best readers would read five verses each. We would read around four chapters per day, usually in the morning.

As each year passed, I kept adding to a document which contained introductory information about each book. I used this document to give my family background information for each book and to record the things I felt were important about it. By the time our children were adults, I had over 400 pages of notes. These notes documented the following kinds of information:

  • The historical context of each book of the Bible.
  • The questions I asked them.
  • An explanation of the meaning of each book.
  • A list of the important matters of each book.
  • A list of key memory verses.
  • A basic outline of each book

This book is a compilation of these notes as well as notes I collected as I studied these books on my own and as I preached through them over the years.

JOURNEY THROUGH THE BIBLE IS AVAILABLE NOW – IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO ORDER A COPY, PLEASE CONTACT US, OR YOU CAN ORDER DIRECT FROM THE NCFIC ONLINE STORE HERE. We may be able to get a deal on shipping if there is interest in a bulk order.

NEW WEBINAR & ARTICLE

We mentioned a while back about an upcoming webinar we were recording on the subject of “Having A Family Integrated Perspective in a Non-Family Integrated Church”. This has now been completed, following an article of the same name that Kris was asked to write for the NCFIC (National Centre for Family Integrated Churches) based in the USA.

In the webinar, hosted by Scott Brown (Director of the NCFIC) Kris, along with Craig Houston (who spoke at ENGAGE), and Jason Dohn (Pastor at Sovereign Redeemer, NC), discuss the article, and give practical pointers for families who would like to be part of an integrated church, but do not have that option.
