Two Workshop Ideas originally posted by member "Faith Village Coordinator"

We developed a Thanksgiving season lesson set on "Don't Worry! Be Thankful!" based on Matthew 6:25-34, and using Philippians 4:6 as the memory verse.

Congregational engagement: This would be a good time for a food and clothing donation as the "righteousness" (doing the right thing) and food and clothing tie-in.

Art Workshop: We will focus on how the flowers are clothed in the passage (emphasizing the clothing donation), and make tissue paper flowers. Good instructions are located here: (original link removed, as that site is no longer active).

Construction Workshop: Focusing on birds and food, we will talk about how God provides food for birds in winter, and make bird feeder garlands out of popcorn and dried fruit (and enjoy some ourselves!). We will emphasize the food donation. Instructions for the bird feeder garland here: bird feeder
