Thank God for what you learned today.

and one thing they would like to ask God for.

Consider who else to pray for, especially those who don’t know Jesus.


Family Worship Time 

This family worship time will be most valuable to your family if you preview the materials ahead of your planned family gathering so that you can assess what is appropriate engagement for the age of your kids. 

In general a child's attention span is 3 to 5 minutes per year of a child's age for best engagement of their listening and comprehension.
