Faith at Home
Ideas for Faith at Home in the summer:
1. Attend Vacation Bible School: Hero Central - Discover Your Strength in God, is June 19-23. We have classes for kids age 2-Junior High. We will mee from 6:00-8:30 and dinner will be served in Fellowship Hall from 5:15-6:00.
2. Have a birdhouse to help take care of God's feathered friends. Find a Bible verse that has to do with birds. See how many verses you can find that mention birds. This will get everyone using the Bible!
3. Kids love to put on shows. Help your child put on a show about a Bible story. There are so many stories that would be fun to do. If you have alot of children in your neighborhood, select a story to accomodate them all. 
4. Play Bible charades or 20 Questions. These are both games that all ages can play and you will review Bible knowledge without realizing it.
5. Cook together. Talk about the ingredients and where they came from. Thank God for the meal that He provided. It's important that we all remember that having enough to eat is a blessing.
6. Make a prayer cube. Put the name of a person that needs prayer on each side of the cube. You will need six names. Roll the cube and pray for that person. You can pray for family members, neighbors, friends, co-workers, etc.

7. Sing Christian songs in the car. Many of these songs tell a Bible story (Father Abraham, Rat a Tat Tat - Noah's Ark, Zaccheus, Only a Boy Named David).
8. Go shopping for food to donate to a food pantry. Go as a family to donate the food. Food pantries are usually very low on food during the summer months when children are not in school.
9. Make a fruit salad using nie different fruits. Talk about the Fruit of the Spirit. Galatians 5:22-23.
10. Have a "No Tech" night. Turn off the TV, phones, computers, etc. and go outside and watch the sunset. Look at the stars, Jus talk...and LISTEN!

Faith at Home

 Sunday school and other church programs can do a great deal for the spiritual development of our children. However, studies have shown that family is the most important influence in spiritual formation of children and parents are the very best teachers. We must shift our thinking from church center - family supported, to family centered - church supported. It is our goal to encourage, empower, and help parents feel comfortable talking about faith with their children and to give them some tools to be the very best faith teachers that they can be. Through "Faith at Home" we hope to accomplish this goal.
