Faith at Home
We All Have a Job to Do
Parents, you'll like the lesson this week. One of the activities has you setting a timer for 10 minutes and having everyone in the home go as quickly as possible to complete a task in the house, such as make a bed, empty the trash etc.
In chapter 12 of 1 Corinthians we learn that we all have special gifts and the group as a whole can't do as well without all of us. This is true if it's a sports team, the family, or the church.
What is your job in the church? In what way are you a part of the body? How about your children? Do they feel part of the church and that they have an important job to do?
I have a special job for them if they could spare a few minutes. Our deacons are making valentine bags for our seniors and we would like the children to make valentines for them. We need 45 but we could use as many as we can get. It would be fun to have several valentines in each bag.
Many of our seniors have been in lockdowns for the past 10 months, deprived of friends, family, and other visitors. A few minutes making some valentines would let them know we care and would give children the feel-good feeling that comes with doing something for others. It will also let them know that they are important to our church community as well.
You can get fancy and use colored paper and decorations if you have them, but simple copy paper, perhaps cut in a heart, with a special message and colored works just as well.
If you can help, let Carol know at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll arrange the pickup.
