podcasticon2Today we cover one of the most asked questions concerning house church: What do I do with my children during church? We are all concerned that our children are growing in the nurture and admonition of the Lord (Eph. 6:4). How is this done in a simple church?  Who’s responsibility is the spiritual formation of children? Tom and Gavin will discuss children in the church.

The above link will take you to our third podcast in the Keep It Simple: Being the Simple Church in a Complex World series. This podcast is put together by Gavin Duerson, from Lexington, Ky and myself (Tom LeCompte) from Louisville, Ky. We are both passionate about being the Simple Church. Today, Gavin and I discuss what worship looks like in a small community of believers meeting in homes, parks, and other “off campus” venues. We hope these podcasts are helpful and informative for you. God Bless!
