Family Rituals

What are Family Rituals?

Family Rituals are practices that families in the Woodland Hills community do consistently in their homes to help them connect and live out their faith as families and individuals.  Family Rituals provide a place where kids and parents can share their faith, their struggles, and wrestle with questions that they may have. Learn a bit more about it here.

Who develops the Family Rituals?

Dr. Bill Doherty (Family Therapist) introduced the idea of Family Rituals to Woodland Hills. He has worked with church staff and families to develop family rituals that are simple and effective in getting families connected to each other and growing in their faith.

Training Sessions

Training sessions are great ways to get a feel for each ritual in action and are done over Zoom, so there is no need to find a babysitter.  These sessions include a detailed description of each ritual, videos of families practicing the ritual, and time to answer questions. Once we schedule more training sessions, you will see them here!


"I cannot even begin to explain how incredibly profound the impact from these sermons has been on my life. Thank you, Woodland Hills Church, for posting them. We're reading you down in Texas, loud and clear."
