Our families are important to God.

SUNDAY IS COMING
We are running our regular plan this weekend.
Sign in for kids happens between 9:45 and 10:15 - the earlier the better though as the kids have activities set up to start at 9:45am.
If you get there after 10:15 you’ll find us all together in our worship space, sign your kids in and come and join us.

TO READ TOGETHER
Genesis 45:3-11,15
God gave Joseph dreams that helped Joseph know to prepare for a famine in Egypt. People came to Egypt from all over for food, including Joseph’s family! Joseph helped his family by giving them food and and forgiving them. 


SO I’M WONDERING
(Some things to think about together)
Who is in our family? Who lives nearby? Who lives far away?
Where do we like to travel together? Where would you like to travel to next?

TO DO TOGETHER
Today is Family Day are you doing something special together? If you are, that’s fantastic. But maybe it doesn’t work to have a family day today because someone has to work but you could plan another day to be a special family day.
Have each member of your family choose one special thing to do. It can be an outdoor activity, playing a game, reading books together, finding something to eat, cooking, or visiting friends or extended family members nearby. Joseph provided food for his hungry family, so try to include at least one food-related activity. Plan your day together and have fun.

KEEP YOUR EYES OPEN
This week, watch for families. How are they different from yours? How are they the same? Talk about the different families you see.

TO PRAY TOGETHER
Dear God, thank you our family. Help us to love and help each other. Amen. 


GENEROUS GIVING
The puppy will be back in action this Sunday - I had to get a new one as he had suffered from overenthusiastic little hands! The money that we collect each week is gathered up and added to the adult offering and our portion is used to support Miguel in Mexico. Thanks for helping your kids be generous givers.
