Biblical Foundations for Family Life

Grungy Paper

Biblical Foundations for Family Life 

1 Credit - May satisfy one WCFS Bible, Social Studies or Elective course requirement

Course Description:

Biblical Foundations For Family Life is designed to introduce God’s design for the family to the high school student. Biblical Foundations For Family Life will cover key topics on the family over a 9-week lecture period, and will set forth homework assignments which will require an additional 12 hours of study outside the classroom.


Using standard Bible research techniques, Biblical Foundations For Family Life focuses on the student's development of practical Bible study skills that help the Christian to address issues of life that affect the believer in the everyday, ordinary world. These techniques include using key topic questions or specific personal issues to create a backdrop which opens up Bible study for personal, life-changing instruction as described in 1 Timothy 3:16.

Specific study exercises will be utilized which will promote topical study skills (systematic study) and Bible study skills (book study, chapter by chapter). These techniques will strengthen the students skill in seeking answers from the Word of God and help them begin to draw conclusions based on substance of the scriptural text and humble analysis based upon need and the Holy Spirit’s help.
