Last year we published a fun idea to send home with the families in your ministry (or put together for your own family). We are reposting this today here on the blog. Take the time to create this devotional- it is a great way to teach our families in the midst of the chaos of Christmas.
Family Devotional Bag for Christmas
Equip parents by providing each family a bag of short devotionals to do together during the Christmas season. Each bag contains seven wrapped packages with each one containing a short devotional, an activity and a simple object.
Supplies Needed: wrapping paper (or small white bags), tape, white lunch bag, glow in the dark stars (stickers will work), nails (square heads), twine, tea lite candles, clothespins, magic pads (erasers will work), blank tickets (carnival), rubber bands (Christmas colors are great), stickers with numbers 1-7, copies of devotional cards
Wrap each item listed below with the corresponding devotional card:
Magic pad- Luke 2:11
Two nails and twine- Romans 6:23
Tickets- Matthew 1:23
Glow in dark stars- Psalm 19:1
Candle- John 8:12
Rubberband- John 13:34
Clothespin- Philippians 2:14
Tie the top of the package with a ribbon. Cut out the instruction card, punch a hole in the side and attach to the ribbon.
