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.
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
