It’s coming up on Christmastime! What a great time to celebrate God’s love! What are some ways we can show our love to our families? Friends and neighbours? Our world?
We found it! Time to Celebrate!
Find your pillowcase. Write on your families’ pillowcases how much you love them. Remind them of how much God loves them! Use pictures if you prefer.
When you all are done with your art create a family circle and hold the ends of the pillowcases. Have a prayer time sharing with God what you created.
Write a note of blessing to tell each family member how much you love them. Remind them that God loves them, too!
Put them in your shoebox. Pray over your notes, blessing the person you wrote them about and praising God for them!
