Quick Dip Activities for families to do together – take about 5-10 minutes each.

Each activity has 3 parts

Instructions:

  • Find  a Bible – if possible one suitable for your age children
  • Find a time when the whole family is together 
  • Choose one activity
  • Encourage everyone to take part – but respect a person’s wish not to
  • Remember that you are learning together as a family – no one has all the answers, every ones opinions are valid – no matter how old or how young.

Activity 1:  God is.. Omnipresent

  • Read – Psalm 139: 7-12
  • Think/Talk about – what does this mean for you this week?
  • Pray – Thank God that we are never alone.

Activity 2: He gives strength to the weary

  • Read – Isaiah 40: 28-31
  • Think/talk about – Do you ever think that god doesn’t care about how you feel? How do these words show us that he does?
  • Pray – Thank God that through Jesus we can have this wonderful gift.

Activity 3: Prayer – Confess our sins

  • Read – 1 John 1: 8-9
  • Think/talk about – We all sin. Shae a way in which you have sinned today with each other.
  • Pray – ask God to forgive you and thank him that he promises to forgive us because of Jesus 9see verse 7)..
