Worship Together

Share in some faith practices of worship together!

Shine a Light: Make a light (candle, flashlight, light switch) and say, “Jesus is the light of the world!”

Sing Together: “Do My Best” Love, I’ll love, I’ll love you Lord forever. Love, I’ll love, I’ll love you Lord forever. I’ll do my best. I’ll do my best, woah-oh-oh. I’ll do my best for you! (If you want to learn this camp song, try this link from Luther Park:

Make an Offering: How will you make an offering today?

Talk About It!

We have been reading stories about Jesus from the book of John. Last week we read about Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead! This week, in chapter 12, Jesus is at the same house. He is about to eat with Lazarus and the disciples, when Lazarus’ sister, Mary pours expensive perfume on Jesus’ feet. The perfume was special and expensive and she did it to honor Jesus. When have you done special things for others? When have others given a special gift to you?

Digging deeper: One of the disciples was upset with Mary when she poured the perfume on Jesus. He thought that was wasteful. Do you think Jesus was upset with Mary? No, he accepted her gift. Sharing and giving our best is one of the ways God wants us to show love.

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. 

Giving my best to Jesus: Look in your home Lenten kit and make the perfume bottle project. Glue on the squares of tissue paper to make the bottle colorful, then write in, “Giving my best to Jesus” on the label. If you wish, you can also write in “John 12:1-8”.

My best rainbow: Find a rainbow picture or draw your own. On each colorful row, write in some of your best actions. For example, write, “I did my best at school when I ______.” Or “I did my best with my family when I _______.” Think of friends, neighbors, pets, activities, etc. and remember the moments that made you proud of doing good things.

Pray Together

“Dear Jesus, thank you for the story of Mary anointing Jesus. Help us do our best to love, serve and worship you. We love you, God. Amen”

Bless Each Other

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

Give each other a high 5, then say “You’re awesome at doing your best!”
