Equip Parents & Grandparents to Hand Down Confident Faith in 2021

2020 meant a year of limited and reduced personal contact with the children and families in our churches. 2021 will at least begin with more of the same. Think about this. For many of the children and families they will not have been able to participate in Children's Ministry for a year. A year. This is a long time.

It is also the reason why we must be focused upon equipping parents and grandparents to hand down confident faith to the children. If families rely on church to do this - as so many do - then what happens when we experience a pandemic (and we are likely to experience this again)? Handing down confident faith is something which must take place during the day-in-day-out living of our lives - not something which must depend upon being able to go to church.

So, make 2021 the year where you equip parents and grandparents to hand down confident faith. This does not have to be difficult to do. In fact, it is able to be simple, engaging, interesting, and fun! The "Life on the Goldilocks Planet" curriculum/book series will provide the tools parents and grandparents need to hand down confident faith. As the work through the book with the children they love, they will come to see God's fingerprints are on the world around us, and while God wants us to believe Him with faith, He has provide so many ways for us to see "why" we are able to believe in Him and trust Him with confidence - we just have to open our eyes and look!

This series will provide one new animal for families to discover together each week. As they learn about the animals, and the special features they have which show us God designed them, they will come to have a confident faith!

I have combined the first four books into one digital resource which you are able to use with families in your church for just $3 per family. If you would like to do this, email me at lyndagcj@gmail.com and I will give you the link. Share the link with the families and ask them to go buy their digital book, then as a church you will be able to work though it together, learning together as everyone participates in their own homes - especially important when they are not able to gather at church.
