 Background

Family is the most basic unit of any Society. Well informed families will create well informed Churches and Nations. If the family or a home is empowered and commits itself to regularly engage with the Scriptures eventually the entire nation will engage with the Scriptures. The provision of Family Scripture Engagement Packs will motivate families to study and discuss the word of God together using the Bible reading guides from Scripture Union.
