The Kids Ministry invites you to participate in ‘Fall Gratitude,’ a photo scavenger hunt during the month of November. The rules are simple:
- Take a photo of everything on the list. (Yes, you and your family can be in the photo. Have fun and be creative!)
- Post that photo on Facebook and/or Instagram.
- Space out your posts over the entire month of November. Maybe post a photo every week or every other day.
- Talk to your family about why you’re grateful for each item on the list.
Remember, there’s no rush to take these photos and get them posted on social media — you have the entire month of November to work on it as a family. For more detailed information on the rules of Fall Gratitude (including the list of items to photograph), please download this PDF.
Parents, we encourage you to download our “Prayerful November” PDF and use it with your child to help guide them in their prayers and thanksgiving this month! It’s also a great way to open up faith-based discussions that can lead to significant spiritual growth and a better understanding of God and His word for your child. Download it today!
Christmas is just around the corner and we know it’s an important time of year for kids and their families. This year, due to COVID, we have had to cancel our traditional ‘Breakfast with Jesus’ but we wanted to offer you a family-oriented event that will both be safe and fun for everyone!
On Sunday, November 29 the Kids Ministry will pass out a Christmas kit to each family. We are calling this kit “The Gift” and it will contain supplies (wood & nails) and instructions for parents and kids to build a manger. Parents can pick up the kit after each service on that Sunday. The purpose of ‘The Gift‘ is to give parents a chance to teach kids about hard work, perseverance and (most importantly) why the manger is so important to our faith. Also included in this kit will be a list of possible Christmas activities, service opportunities and devotionals.
The first activity will be to build your manger. Then, during the days and weeks leading up to Christmas, you can display the manger inside (or outside) your home. The goal is to collect items to give away and donate them the week of (or immediately after) Christmas. Some of the suggested ideas are to collect canned goods to a food pantry, hats & gloves to a shelter or baby items to PDHC. Don’t worry — we will give you plenty of suggestions of places that could use some extra help!
