Activities

Tent Making: We are all called to tell about Jesus. Click here for the table tent making activity!   It can be any size, any shape. You can each make a tent, or you can make one tent together as a family. There are no rules around how you make your tents – be creative! Send pictures of your tents to River of Hope! We would love to post them on our Faith at Home web page!

Practice Peacemaking: The church at Corinth was divided over the different teachings they had heard. Sometimes, as a family, we are divided in our opinions too! We are going to do an exercise that points out some of our differences. Then we will practice showing how the love of Christ can bring us back together. Click here for the practice peacemaking activity!

WE GO OUT 

Spring Flowers

  • Make tissue paper flowers and attach a message of love to the “stem”. (Something like, “Jesus Loves You” or, “You are a loved child of God”)
  • Leave the flowers in places where people might find it – you might want to write another note that says … “If you see me, take me home to brighten your day!”

Mother’s Day all week

  • Think of one or two women in your life who have “mothered” you. Send them a card thanking them for the love they have shown you!

Review past week activities

Find one or two that you haven’t done from a past week.

WE GO OUT family activities from past weeks:

Prayer Chalk “Go Out” Activity

From the Lesson on Sunday, May 3 Paul prayed “I always give thanks to God for you because…”

Surprise someone by writing a prayer of thanksgiving about them with chalk on their sidewalk or driveway using the phrase from Sunday’s story, making sure to complete the sentence with something about them.

Spring Clean up

  • Choose one of your family’s favorite outdoor spots.
  • Bring trash bags and gloves and pick up whatever trash you find in that area
  • Before you leave, make a chalk drawing or chalk prayer for the next visitors to know that God loves them just as they are!

Living out Matthew 25

  • In Matthew 25 Jesus tells us that when we help other people who are hungry or lonely or cold or hurting in any way, we are helping Jesus!
  • This week we are helping people who are unable to get their own groceries by picking them up for them through the Hutchinson food shelf. Go to https://mcleodemergencyfoodshelf.org/ and follow the instructions for proxy pick-up intake.;
