Family Fun Time!

   During this time of social isolation, families will get to spend a great deal of time with each other! Let's use this time to grow closer to God and to each other! You will find some links and activities below that you can do to enrich your time together!

   Each week, we will provide a suggestion on what you can do as a family - so, keep on scrolling down to see weekly suggestions!

Family Time 1:   Start a Quiet Time together!

   The Bible calls us to 'redeem the time' (Eph. 5:16; Col. 4:5) - that is, to use the time that He has given us, wisely. This time of isolation presents to us a unique opportunity to grow closer to our families and to God.

   This week, do start a Quiet Time together. If you have younger kids, do download the "Bible App for Kids", which is available for free on your Google Play or Apple App Store (https://www.bible.com/kids). They will get to interact with the Bible and see it come to life!

   If you have older kids, you can use this time to restore, repair, and strengthen your relationships by exploring the different topics (like anxiety, forgiveness, peace, dating, etc) that are found on the Bible App (www.bible.com).

   This is also an especially wonderful time for you and your spouse to reconnect, as many of us are now spending more time together at home. There are many marriage topics that you will be able to explore with your spouse - just click on the following link and start enriching your marriage (https://www.bible.com/reading-plans-collection/1815)!

Family Time 2:   Do the "Quarantine S.H.A.K.E." and submit your video for compilation!

Do you have a hard time remembering all the COVID-19 safety protocols? Well, we'd like you to learn the Quarantine S.H.A.K.E. (provided by Saddleback Kids) with us! When you have learned the steps, take a video of the whole family doing the S.H.A.K.E. and submit it to pastorgerald@praiseic.com by May 30th) for a church compilation!

 

 

Family Time 3:   Share Your Isolation Adventure Story!

Each week, we'd like to get to know a church family better. The 'Family of the Week' will be featured on our 'Home' page - under the 'Family of the Week' tab.

So, help us know you better so that you can be on our prayer list as well. Do tell us:

a) How the quarantine has impacted you;

b) What are you doing as a family;

c) What God has been teaching you this season;

d) Include your family photos; and

e) Email your story and photos to PG at pastorgerald@praiseic.com.

For the purpose of privacy, only the first initial of your last name will be displayed. Thank you and God bless you!
