Use this activity to help families celebrate their
journey with God...
For each family, you'll need a 6-foot piece of butcher paper,
markers, masking tape, and a Bible.
In a large room, tape one piece of butcher paper to the wall for
each family. Have each family work together to create a timeline of
their journey with God using words, drawings, and Bible verses.
Have families include marriages and birthdays as well as family
milestones, such as when a child entered preschool or when the
family moved. Then families can add fun memories and difficult
times that affected everyone -- illnesses or injuries, vacations,
or changes in jobs or schools.
After families are finished with their timelines, have them
discuss these questions:
- What are your family's best memories? What are your future
dreams for your family?
- What difficult events have you overcome as a family? How did
those events make you closer?
- How have you seen God moving in your family through the years?
How has your family experienced God's faithfulness?
