Nurturing Faith Ideas
Nurturing Faith Ideas are weekly suggestions and activities from the Presbytery's Nurture Committee to link worship and home and to nurture faith development in the family. They are intended for all ages and family types. Add one to your bulletin each week or put them in your monthly newsletter. They could also be sent via email or added to a Facebook page. Ideas for the entire year can be found  here.

April 29
How often do you share the Word of God? The good word of Jesus? How many times in your life have you faced a moment where you had the opportunity to share the greatest gift the world has ever received? Did you? In Acts 8:26-40, Luke tells of the time Philip listened to the Spirit and by doing so was able to share the story of Jesus, even bringing the Ethiopian Eunuch to baptism. As you pray this week, consider asking God to give you the opportunity to share your faith. Be ready to do so when God does. 

May 6
In John 5, we read about Jesus' interaction with a man who had been disabled for 38 years. The man tells Jesus he had no one to care for him or help him in his life. Jesus immediately tends to the man and heals him. Jesus teaches us here by actions, not words. This week, act out Jesus' teaching in your life when you see someone in need.
