Hands-On Faith – Week of April 30, 2018

Hands-on Faith for Families – week of April 30, 2018

Theme: Know Your Faith Story

Share Your Faith

Scripture:…but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect… (1 Peter 3:15 ESV)

Play: Think of your favorite animal, food and school subject. Then, give your children clues so they can guess each favorite thing, one at a time. Repeat until each person’s favorites have been revealed.

Talk: If someone asked you why these things are your favorites, you’d probably be able to give them several reasons. Maybe gym class is your favorite because you love to play games, or perhaps pizza is your favorite food because you love all the cheese and toppings. The Bible says we should be ready to give reasons for our faith in God (1 Peter 3:15) — just as we can explain why we love our favorite things. Why do you have hope in Jesus?

Pray: Ask God to help you to share your hope in Christ with others.
