Faith Builders

One final round of family faith activities, leave a comment if you’ve tried any of these. How did it go?

Prayer—Prayer is how we relate to God and we can do it in a number of ways and is an extremely important part of your faith life as a family. Prayer is talking, listening, being still, moving, creating, praising, and so much more! The book of Psalms is filled with prayers and can be found right in the middle of your Bible. Read some aloud (Psalm150 is a great one for kids!). Have regular times of prayer as a family—maybe at mealtime, on the road and at bedtime. Pray for yourselves, others and the world. Remember those who are lonely or sick. Share joys and concerns. Spend time with God in prayer each day as a family.
Celebrations!—God loves parties! On birthdays, celebrate the birthday person as a gift from God. Tell him or her how special he or she is to you and to God. Create a special plate, cloth or banner celebrating the person. Celebrate a regular day—enjoy a picnic in God’s creation, play games, spend time with friend and thank God for all your blessings. On Easter and Christmas, focus on the faith meanings of these holidays in fun, creative ways!
Worship –At Resurrection, worship is for everyone. Whether worship is in TreeHouse Park, Bible Theater, the Student Center, the sanctuary or elsewhere, coming together to now, love and serve God through worship is critical to faith development. Make sure your entire family worships God regularly. You will be glad you did—and so will God!

Blessings to you and yours this week and always!
