(Recommended for 6th grade)
Establish the practice of honoring God at home, at church and in our day to day life while also giving to him and serving others for His glory.
One of the core values of St Paul Lutheran Church is that God designed the family as the primary place for discipleship. The Faith Path initiative exists to partner with you as you guide your child’s spiritual journey one step at a time. Age appropriate packets have been created to help you leverage the best faith formation strategy for your child’s stage of development. In this Worship, Giving & Serving packet you will find practical ideas and suggested resources to help you teach your child to make a difference and adore God. I urge you to start today by taking the following simple steps.
STEP ONE: LEARN
We have links to two short videos that explains this particular Faith Path step. You will hear from both experts and ordinary families as they share practical suggestions from their experiences. You will also find a guide that offers practical tips and what we consider the best resources on the topic.
STEP TWO: START
To help your child learn about giving, this kit includes a fun activity about stewardship called Rolling in Money with corresponding Give, Save, Pay stickers. We’ve also included an Assessing Your Child’s Spiritual Gifts tool that you will enjoy completing with your son or daughter to begin coaching them toward serving in their area of strength. We encourage you to buy a frame and dry erase marker for the God You Are card included with this packet. Use it to begin a routine of worshipping God with your child right away.
STEP THREE: TAKE IT HOME EVENT
Every August families are invited to our “Worship, Serving, and Giving Take-It-Home Event.” This event provides an opportunity to connect with other families that will be walking alongside their child during this time of learning how to worship, serve and give.
We hope you find this packet helpful in the process of forming the faith of your child at home. Feel free to visit fallsathome.com/faith-path to learn more or to determine if your child/children are ready for other Faith Path steps.
