Featured Playlist: The God We Can Know
These playlists are designed for families with children ages 0-5th grade and will be noted if they are age specific. The activities are short (usually only 5-10 minutes) and include family conversations, Bible stories, devotionals, printables and more. They reflect the building blocks that are important for a child’s faith development .
Choose the activities that work for your family. Pick a time that works...once a week, every day or somewhere in the middle. Use one or two things or use them all. It's up to you as you grow in your faith together!
The God We Can Know (Oct 11-Nov 22)
Getting to know God means getting to know ourselves. The more we know who God is the more we know who we are. The Gospel of John records several declarations of Jesus known as the "I Am" sayings. This playist is designed for you to explore each of those sayings and will help you find and form an answer to the most essential question in the Christian faith, "Who do you say I am?"
One by one, Jesus' statements grab our imagination, reveal more about his identity and purpose, and connect us to the God of Moses, who spoke the first "I Am." These significant yet ordinary images (bread, light, shepherd, vine, and more) give us insightful ways to experience Jesus and point us to a God who wants to be known.
