It's time for #FamilyFavoriteFriday! Here's what we found to share with you around the web this week ...

For Ministry Leaders ...

Is your church proud of its "Youth Sunday" service? or maybe "Children's Sabbath"? This article helps us evaluate our current programs and brings into question how they fit into the larger mission of the church. Are they more than just a show? Are they actually part of the problem?

Why not let kids play with toys while they pray? Here's a great Lego-themed prayer practice that allows them to do just that!

For Fun ...

For thought ...

  • What is the best handmade gift your kids have made for you or a relative? 

  • How does youth or children's Sunday fit into the larger vision of your church? 

  • What other toys might you use for a prayer time?
