January Family Advocacy Week- Racial Justice
JANUARY 25-29th, 2021
Join us this week as we hear how people SHOW UP in our community, learn ways you can SHOW UP and listen to stories to help kids SHOW UP in their own way!
You will find everything here and on our Social Media. Each day we will post new content for you to hear and learn from with your family. You choose when you want to watch them and do the activities! Start with a morning devotion, listen to a Storybook Time, read our daily advocacy information, or end your evening listening to the Power of Story Time and hear from members of our community.

Pray For The Community With Your Kids At Home
Share in some faith practices at home!
Container filled with water
What To Do:
Think of people or things you would like to bring to God and cut out a shape from the paper. Ideas of prayers:
Praying for others/community- flowers or stars, writing the name of a different person on each petal/ star arm
Love/ forgiveness/ sorry- heart shapes
Thanks- the shape of something you want to thank God for.
Fold the corners, sides or petals of the shapes into the middle (as shown in the picture collage above).
Place the bottom of the prayer shape on top of the water and watch as the petals or folded portions of the shapes gradually open out, symbolically opening out the prayer to God. The opened shape will then float on top of the water. This will take some time to happen fully so there is plenty of opportunity to watch and reflect on the prayers!
Dear God, Help us to learn how to SHOW UP for our community, to explore the world together and to play and be happy. Help us to have love for each other, to build kindness into every day, and to always remember God loves us all. Amen.
