Family & Children Ministry – May 2019

It is hard to believe that we are already coming up to the end of the school year and we do not have too much longer to go before the summer!

With the warmer weather comes a variety of trips and likely an uptick of things demanding your family’s time. While your down time may be shorter, it doesn’t mean that discipling your family has to be minimized. Consider some of
these simple ideas for ways in which you can keep the gospel at the heart of everything you do.

Do you and/or your child’s school have a summer reading list for your child?

1. Consider reading the books your child is reading. Are there gospel talking points? (Ex: Harry Potter—Good and evil? Prophetic hero against brutally dark forces?)

2. Perhaps a biography is more up their alley. Consider a biography by someone who exemplifies characteristics and values that you envision for your child.

A great reminder from Hebrews 12:1-2, “ …and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith…“
