Great ideas! And THANK YOU to everyone out there working overtime...from home...working to continue to make sure children are still hearing the stories of the Bible and of God's love and promises! And as always, reading all your thoughts and the bible stories I am putting together always makes me re-center and remember why we do what we do.
One thing we are doing with our children is creating a Spring Bible Challenge! We are encouraging families to download a free app bibleappforkids. This is a pretty cool app. You can read and listen to the story with cute animation. After you read the story it opens up 5 activities you can do. So each week I will send an email out to our families with the story for the week and an attached activity card with 5 activities. They are asked to do at least 2 of the activities. The children who do this for now through Mother's Day will receive a prize to a local ice cream place, plus get their name in an drawing for a gift card. We also have a Bible Bucks Market that the children could earn Bible bucks and then buy stuff at a month Market. For each activity the child does they will recieve 2 bible bucks in their Sunday School "account". And at the end of May, we will hopefully have an ice cream social to celebrate and open up the Bible Bucks Market.
We are doing Zoom calls with our Confirmation kids (7th & 8th graders) on Wednesday evening.
We are asking our high school kids to watch a particular movie during the week, and will Zoom conference on Sunday evening during our regular meeting time.
With our 5th and 6th grade group I am working on something similiar to what we're doing with the children....still in progress.
Continued blessings to all!!!!
