Family Ministry Faith at Home Resources


Hello Families,

We are starting a new series this month on Generosity - a 5 part series.

Generosity of spirit is the openness, eagerness and willingness to share our own 'gifts' freely with others, joyously and without expectation of receiving anything in return. We have received the best gift ever - through the life and death and resurrection of Jesus. Nothing compares to God's love for us shown through the life of Christ.

Jesus brings us JOY and JOY for the LORD should inspire good works in us!!! Doing good and sharing what we have with others, is an act of worship and demonstrates God's love to the world and our praises to Him. Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God. Hebrews 13:16

We encourage you to watch our 3 Teaching Videos (Families: Heather, Children: Kate, Youth: Trevor) to help with our theme and faith at home lessons.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Our Family Ministry Team delight in reaching out, encouraging and offering you prayer. When you get a chance, watch our teaching videos, engage in the lesson plans and pray together as a family. Feel free to call, email or message us about anything and we will pray about everything.

Questions to think/reflect on before our Zoom time:

• Read Hebrews 13:16
  - How is this verse relevant to us today and why?
• How can you apply this to your life?
• What can you work on/improve when it comes to giving?
• What is God calling you to do?
• Would you describe your attitude today as one that has a giving heart, or one that is all about yourself?
• What are some things that you have that you can give?
• Has there ever been a time before where you've been blessed because you chose to give?
