An Illustrated Lent
This devotional resource is intended for families with kids 6th Grade and below. For anyone interested in a lenten devotional gear towards an older audience click “Poetry of Lent” in the Left Column.
This year we are inviting families with younger kids to focus intentionally on the spiritual discipline of prayer during the Lenten season. By exploring different Gospel passages of Jesus engaged in prayer, families will be encouraged to learn new ways to expand and enrich their experiences of prayer, individually, as a family, and in community. We will also have hard copies available in the Sunday Schools and the Church Office.
As we journey through this season of Lent together, families are invited to focus intentionally on the spiritual discipline of prayer. By exploring Gospel passages of Jesus engaged in prayer, families are encouraged to learn new ways to expand and enrich their experiences of prayer, individually, as a family, and in community. And finally, each week we will create time and space to learn about prayer from Jesus through scripture readings, discussions, and family activities.
Our Lent devotionals are written to be used by children and adults of all ages. We believe you'll find questions and discussion topics in each devotional that will work for your children, no matter the age. At the same time, we invite you to feel free to tweak the content and questions to work for your family. Don’t feel like you need to do all the activities for it to be a meaningful experience for you and your family or community. We invite you to take a look at the devotionals, see what you think will work best for your family’s schedule, and find time each week to gather together as a family.
Copies can be found in the office
The devotional is rooted in scripture. We invite you to use your bible but if you are interested in a digital equivalent we encourage you to use the bible app, or the website biblegateway.com which allow you to jump between many of your favorite translations.
