FAMILY WORKSHOPS & MILESTONES:
Promoting discipleship at home

Deuteronomy 6:7 “Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.“

WHO: Parents and their 3 or 4 year olds

WHY: Faith talks help families build relationships, experience their faith together, and think about who God is in their lives throughout the week, not just Sunday morning.

WHAT: This class helps families understand the value of building connections and how to do faith talks in their home.

HOW: Attend Faith Talk Family Workshop or click on the button above for tips, resources, and plan to be intentional this year.

FAITH TALKS

Sharing your faith and cultivating an environment where faith grows.

RECOMMENDED FOCUS: AGES 3 or 4+

Deuteronomy 6:7 “Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.“

 Here are some tips for helping you have faith talks at home:

 Keep it simple: Pepper in your faith through God sightings and your daily conversation.

 Keep it fun: God’s word is amazing! No need to spoil it with a lecture, your faith talks can be mixed in with fun family activities or outings.

 Look for resources: Each week VPC Children’s ministry hands out and emails a Take Away with simple follow up or discussion questions. There are also several resources listed below.

 Make it a priority: It doesn’t matter when you do it, breakfast, lunch, dinner, in the car, bedtime. The important thing is that you do it and have fun:)

 

Need some more ideas to get you started:

Pick a family verse to memorize

Watch an age appropriate movie then discuss some of the characters choices in the context of faith.

Share a personal God sighting

Go on a family walk and look for examples of God’s creation around you

MAKE A PLAN TO BE INTENTIONAL THIS NEXT YEAR WITH YOUR CHILD:

This year I will...

  • Pray daily for and with my child.
  • Consistently spend time in God’s Word
  • Bless my child daily
  • Pepper in faith talks &  family time weekly
  • ___________________________________________

 The next workshop for your child is Prayer

 

Remember just two degrees of difference can change your faith journey (and that of your child's) dramatically, “by making small changes in your life, not only can you accomplish...
transformation, but you can also sustain it as well.”
Dr. John Trent, The 2 Degree difference
