Mobile Ministry for Families

Welcome to Mobile Ministry for Families, a place to connect with God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, and Covenant Presbyterian Church. Wherever you may be, these ideas will continue to inspire the spiritual growth of our children.

Home Worship Space

Have your children help create a worship space in your home. What would be included in that space? Some ideas are: Bibles, a cross, music, prayers, religious pictures or banners drawn by the children. What other items? Sit in the worship space anytime, but especially on Sunday morning during the Sunday School lesson and online Covenant worship service.

Palm Sunday Resources and Ideas

  • Decorate your home worship space with homemade palm leaves, a donkey or drawing of a donkey. Make banners or signs which say “Hosanna!  Hosanna!”

  • April 5: Palm Sunday, Sunday School Lesson

  • Palm Leaf Crafts: This year, consider starting a new tradition of making your own palms out of construction paper, pipe cleaners, and other supplies around the home.  There are many wonderful ideas online to get you started!

  • Donna’s Palm Sunday Children’s Time 

  • Older children can compare the Palm Sunday story (sometimes called the Triumphal Entry) Bible scriptures: Matthew 21:1-11, Luke 19:28-40, and John 12:12-19. What is the same in each story? What is different?

  • Parade outside reenacting the Palm Sunday story, shouting “Hosanna!” Parental guidance required.

 

Holy Week Idea

 

Easter Sunday Resources and Ideas

  • Decorate your home worship space with streamers, balloons, colorful eggs (a symbol of new life), Easter lilies, and butterflies. Make banners or signs which say, “Alleluia” or “Jesus Christ is Risen” or “Happy Easter”.

  • April 12: Easter Sunday, Sunday School Lesson

  • Alleluia Butterfly Coloring Sheet

  • New Life Nature Hunt: Walk outside and hunt for signs of new life and spring. Look for green grass, birds and bird’s nests, flowers, bugs, buds and leaves on bushes and trees. Parental guidance required.

  • Draw with sidewalk chalk on your driveway or sidewalk. Create Easter eggs, a stained-glass window, or write “Alleluia” and “He is Risen!”

Sunday School Lessons from Growing in Grace & Gratitude Curriculum

 

Crafts

  • Origami Butterfly Craft

  • Make a paper prayer chain for your worship space using a variety of recycled papers. Write prayers for families, friends, your Covenant family, and animals. Add to the prayer chain every day.  How long will your prayer chain be?

  • Use Legos or other building toys to retell a Bible story. Read the Bible story and wonder how it would look. (some ideas are Noah’s Ark, the Birth of Jesus, and The Last Supper)

 

Mission and Outreach Ideas

Look through the church pictorial directory and have your child or children choose people to make cards for and send them. These could be drawings or notes. Be sure to include your child’s name and that your family is from Covenant Presbyterian Church

 

Exercising Faith

  • Pray The Lord’s Prayer while washing hands.

  • Walk outside and thank God for all the creations you see.
