Family Rituals

What are Family Rituals?

Family Rituals are practices 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 with each other their faith, their struggles, and wrestle with questions that they may have.

What are the Family Rituals in place now?

Who develops the Family Rituals?

Dr. Bill Doherty (Family Therapist) introduced the idea of Family Rituals to Woodland Hills last year.  Since then, he, along with church staff and families have been meeting to develop family rituals that are simple and effective in getting families connected to each other and growing in their faith.

Training Sessions
Bedtime Ritual:

Tuesday, June 6 from 7-8:30pm
Sunday, July 30 from 3-4:30pm

Meal Ritual:

Sunday, June 25 from 3-4:30pm
Tuesday, July 18 from 7-8:30pm

Training sessions are great ways to get a feel for each ritual in action and will be done over Zoom, so there is no need to find a babysitter.  These sessions include a detailed description of each ritual, watching videos of families practicing the ritual, and taking time to answer any questions that come up.

"Thank you all the way from Oregon. I deeply appreciate being shepherded by Pastor Greg and everyone else on the panels. You are a rare find in the church nowadays. Tackling tough questions with humility and a kingdom perspective. It has been life changing for me in such tumultuous times."
