Winter Family Faith Formation – Jan 9
Join us each week as a family to celebrate all God has for us in the New Year!
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!
Start with a Welcome Video from Miss Karla
Share in some faith practices of worship together!
Shine a Light: Make a light (candle, flashlight, light switch) and sing “This Little Light of Mine”
Sing Together: We Three Kings or Twinkle Twinkle Little Star
Make an Offering: How will you make an offering today? Grades 1-4 are collecting offerings to go to ELCA Good Gifts. We like to pick out animals for long lasting food stability. Anyone can donate at goodgifts.elca.org
Read the Bible Together
Talk About It!
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.
Singing star: Make a large paper star and write these words that match the Twinkle, Twinkle tune so you can sing about the Wisemen. “Twinkle, twinkle, special star. Wisemen saw you from afar. Followed you to find the King. Gifts for Jesus did they bring. Twinkle, twinkle, special star. Wisemen saw you from afar.”
Sharpie and shiny: Use permanent markers to draw stars or a crown on tin foil. Cut it out and wear you crown to be one of the three kings or decorate your house with shiny stars. (Use paper or cardboard on the back if you want it to be stronger.)
“Dear God, thank you for giving us light so we don’t have to live in the dark. Your love shines down on us all the time. Amen.”
Bless Each Other
At the end of your time, give each other a special blessing to remember one of God’s promises.
Twinkle you fingers like a star over each other’s heads, then say “You shine God’s light!”
