Family & Faith at Home

Family & Faith at Home

Hi everyone!

 

This is a weird time for families; we can't go out very often and lots of children are at home 24/7; parents are trying to work with kids running around and on top of that - Kids' Church is closed!

 

It can feel like a nightmare scenario, but it could be a real opportunity to allow God to build our faith as a family.

 

How?

 

We'd like to share some ideas to help you encourage your children's spiritual life.


Some of the ideas are for parents who are desperately short of things for their children to do; other activities are especially for parents who are working and have little time to prepare stuff.

 

We’d also like to share some simple ways to 'create traditions' in the family’s rhythm of life. Family traditions build strong bonds between everyone in the family and also with God.

 

Each week we will offer one or two activities for the children and a 'family tradition'. You won’t be able to use them all, but we hope some of these will help your family feel part of something unique and special.


So, now for this week's ideas... Sunday 12th April



Lego Easter story

Watch this little lego film about what happened in Jerusalem at this time!

 

Easter Feelings

 

There are lots of important feelings in the story of Easter.

 

Think about the people in the story. Think about the people who had each feeling as you watch the video.

 

Happy

 

Sad

 

Amazed

 

Afraid

 

Angry

 

Puzzled or confused

Weekly window art

Let's spread some joy to children who may still go out for a walk. Leave a picture in your window and start a mass eye spy!

  

Week commencing

A family tradition

Holy Week can raise all kinds of questions in children’s minds as you focus on the story of Jesus’ death on Good Friday and His resurrection on Easter Sunday.

 

Why not make a special family event out of the questions, by making an Easter Question Box. Children can write down their questions about Easter and during Holy Week post them into the box.

 

Then, over a meal or a snack on Easter Sunday, open the box and talk about the issues raised.

 

Wise parents can take a sneak preview of the questions and contact Christian friends or the pastors about any that look a bit tricky!

 



We hope this week's ideas have inspired you; please let us know how you get on.

 

With love in the Lord Jesus,

 

Michelle Watkiss (Kids' Church) & Nick Swanson (Pastor)
