Activity for now:

On the side of a box write the word 'church'. You are going to make a representation of your church family. Using some pipe cleaners or anything you have handy, create some people. Think about who each person represents in your family of faith. Say a little prayer for them as you place them in the 'church' box.

Extra Activity:

Write on some sticky labels the names of people you know in church. Stick each label to the side of a building block. Now build a structure using all the labelled bricks. When it is complete, pray for those named within it.

Activity for this week:

Plan an event for older members of your church family e.g. serving cakes after a service or hosting games afternoons.

 

Prayer for today:

Lord God, thank you that you sent your Son Jesus to live among us. Thank you for the blessing of older people in our lives.  Amen
