Faith at Home Daily Resource

WHAT’S HAPPENING

Hey Parents!

During this time…we want to walk beside you online and help you and your family by providing resources for you, your kids and your family. Below, we will have different resources each day until we can meet again in person. We love you and are here for you. If you need us during this time, whether it is a question, a prayer request or anything…please email me at josh@valleygrove.org

Your Partner,
Pastor Josh

 

Challenge your kids to help with some chores around the house. Make this a time where your kids develop a great work ethic, learn responsibility, build character to help them to feel like an important member of the family.

Getting Started:
This week challenge your kids with wiping down doorknobs and baseboards

  • Put some music on and have a cleaning/dance party.
  • Get a damp cloth.
  • Give each child their own cloth.
  • Show them how you want them to wipe everything down.
  • Put on the music and let them go after it!

Remember to always tell them how much you appreciate them doing their chore. Praise their efforts even if they aren’t perfect. Criticism will only dampen their spirits.

Have you made a chore chart yet? Remember, Pinterest has some great ideas.

Please send in your pictures or videos by emailing them to josh@valleygrove.org or tagging VGBCKnox in your Facebook post.

Spend some time using these resources to hold daily family devotion. Help lead your kids in discovering God’s Word!

DOWNLOAD THE LIFEWAY FAMILY APP

Take some time to download this app for both iPhone and Android. It is FREE and lets you talk with your kids about the lesson they learn each week in Bible Study Groups and Kids Worship.

This entire year, our VG Kids have been working hard to memorize Scripture and learn the books of the Bible…and we want to continue doing just that during this time.

Getting Started:
LEARN THE BOOKS OF THE OLD TESTAMENT
Use the resources below to keep up the learning at home:

SHARE THE FUN!
Make sure to take a video of the fun you have and send it to us in the Facebook Group or VG Kids Google Drive

We miss your kids so much and we want to “eat with you all” every Thursday. Each week one of our VG Kid leaders will share an encouraging story from God’s Word.

Getting Started:
FIX LUNCH AND PRESS PLAY
As you sit down for lunch, log on to the VG Kid Facebook Group and let your kids hear from us as they eat. It’s really that simple!

SHARE THE FUN!
Have your kids get into the kitchen to make a recipe for lunch and then send us a short video of them cooking it. If you give us permission, we will share it for your kid to be our VG Kids Chef! Send the videos to our VG Kids Google Drive.

Spend some time as a family playing a game together. We will post a suggestion each week, but we would also LOVE to see some pictures and videos of what your family is playing. Remember parents, this is for fun, so don’t get mad when your kids beat you! Haha!

Getting Started:
BOARD GAME OR CARD GAME NIGHT
This week pick out a favorite game and just spend time having fun together!
