At-Home Family Worship: Fruit of the Spirit

The Holy Spirit gives love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Galatians 5: 22-23

I don’t know about you, but at my house, we all could use an ‘extra helping’ of the fruit of the spirit towards ourselves and each other right now.

Grab a bowl of fruit! This week as a family, spend time boosting your ‘fruit of the spirit’ morale. Take turns pointing out ways each person shares these gifts during difficult times.

At-Home Family Worship: With God it’s Possible!

This science experiment worship has extra ‘kapow!’ as we talk about our up-close-and-personal-within-us God.

Get out your vinegar, baking soda, and various other science supplies to watch what is possible when we let God work through us!

At-Home Family Worship: Keeping it ‘Feel’

Our Easter, hope-filled focus gives us strength in the promise that there is something better up ahead…but God is also fully present in all the other big feelings that live in our minds and bodies each day.

This week’s worship is a family check-in and opportunity to build up our emotional self-care toolbox while connecting more deeply with our always-with-us-no-matter-what God. Life is messy, God is in the mess!

They released a few new singles this month that strum on our current-state-of-events heart strings.

At-Home Family Worship: Community Service Connect-the-Dots

Being community may look different right now, but’s even more important than before to stay connected.

This week as you worship as a family, take some time to connect-the-dots on ways you can re-connect with people in your neighborhood and greater community.

At Home Family Worship: Good Friday

The army officer that was standing there before the cross saw what happened when Jesus died. The officer said, “This man really was the Son of God!” Mark 15:39

Today we spend time at the cross. We sit together, and remember.
