March 18 - The Shema

March 19 - Holy Listening Stones
In these times of uncertainty and anxiousness, remember to talk with your children about what they are hearing and how they are feeling. A great way to do this is by using Holy Listening Stones. These give kids a safe place to express fear and doubt, to be reminded that all feelings are okay and to be reassured that God's love will never leave them. Check out this quick how to guide, and give it a try!

March 20 - Emoji Theology
The Bible is full of stories that illustrate Gods love for us, ways we can love God, messages of hope, and examples of how to follow in Jesus’s footsteps.  Work together as a family to come up with a scripture or bible story, create a hashtag title and recreate the meaning of the passage(s) in emoji. Share them with us @KUMCKIDMIN. Here’s an example to get you started. We can’t wait to see what you come up with!

March 24 - Bible Verse with motions
This weekend in worship, Pastor Estee shared a Bible verse and motions with us. Here is our friend, Arabella, sharing what we learned in case you missed it. Click for video!

March 26 - Encouragement Activity
As we continue on this journey together, lets make sure we are doing all that we can to encourage one another! Think of ways and make a plan of ways you can encourage others in one of these ways: speaking good words, speaking God's Word, or sticking by their side. For every time you encourage someone, write their name in one of the blocks and color it.

March 27 - Bubble Prayers
Here is a fun way to help your kids connect to God through prayer! Try it out with them, it's amazing what a few minutes of deep breaths, conversation with God, and the beauty of bubbles can do for your day!

We want you all to know we love you, we are praying for you, and we are here for you. Please feel free to reach out to any of us if you need anything.
Kristin, Jenny and Danielle
