Fall Family Faith Formation – Sept 19 & 20


Fall Family Faith Formation – Sept 19 & 20

Join us each week as a family to have fun together with God’s great stories!

Pick from watching our Welcome Videos, Worship Together, Reading the Bible, Talk About It, Family Activities, Pray Together and Bless Each Other – or do them all!

Welcome Videos

Start by picking a Welcome Video from Miss Leah for Grades 1-4
or Miss Renee for littles-Kindergartners or watch both!! 

Worship Together

Share in some faith practices of worship together!

Shine a Light: Light a candle or find a flashlight. Take turns saying, “Jesus is the light of the world!”

Sing Together: This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine!

Make an Offering: How will you make an offering today? An offering is not always money. You can also offer your time, support, or creativity to improve the lives of others.

Littles Sing Together: Twinkle Twinkle Blessing Version
Twinkle twinkle little (or insert each other’s names) star
What a blessing from God you are
You’re as precious (or add a favorite trait) as you can be
I’m so glad you’re in our family
Twinkle twinkle little (or insert each other’s names) star
What a blessing from God you are

Read the Bible Together

Read this week’s God’s Great Story in the children’s Bible for you child’s age.

Frolic Bible (received at Baptism) “Abraham & Sarah”
Spark Story Bible (received at 3 years old) “God’s Promise to Abram” on page 34
Bible (Adventure Bibles received in 3rd Grade) Genesis 12:1-2 and Genesis 15:1-6

3 Year Olds and 3rd Graders will receive their New Bibles as part of our Milestone Ministry this fall. 

Talk About It!

Have fun asking question for all your family members!

Have you ever looked at a starry sky? Can you count the stars?

God promised Abram he would have a son and a family as numerous as the stars in the sky! How big is your family? How big is God’s family?

Dig Deeper: Do some research on your ancestors. Try to learn at least one new story or detail about someone in your family.

Family Activity Choices

Pick activities to do together! Supplies are provided in our Monthly At-Home Kits you picked up at our drive thru events or ask to have delivered to your home. 

Activity:  Prayer Constellation Use the supplies in your Sept At-Home Kit: black construction paper and star stickers to make a prayer constellation. As you place each star, pray for each of your family members. Add a white crayon or white paint to make your starry sky more expansive or draw out constellations. (Let us know if you still need a kit or use your own supplies) 

Activity 2: Family Dance Party Do your funkiest moves to the uplifting, Grammy-winning hit Shining Star by Earth, Wind and Fire. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zu9a29UR2dU

Activity 3: Stargazing Get a blanket out on a clear evening and look at the stars together.

Pray Together

“Dear God, thank you for my family. Help us to be a blessing to each other, our community and the whole word. I love you God. Amen.”

Bless Each Other

At the end of you time, give each other a special blessing to remember one of God’s promises.

Trace a star with your finger on each others hand (or simply make so twinkly star hands)  and say “You are a blessing from God!”
