Sunshine for Seniors
Mission Ministry Opportunity
Let’s spread some SUNSHINE!
Option 1: Choose one (or more) senior friend from our congregation.
Option 2: Choose an older person in your community.
What kind of sunshine can you spread? Here are some ideas…
Write a note or draw pictures and mail them to their house. (Literacy lesson)
Visit their home – write a bible verse and draw a happy picture with sidewalk chalk (Literacy/art lesson)
Bake them a special treat (Math/science lesson)
Call and sing them a song or read them a poem (Literacy/speaking/ music lesson)
Retell or read them your favorite Bible story (Social studies/literacy lesson)
Make yard signs to display at their home (hearts, flowers…) (Art lesson)
(Check our church directory for addresses)
Let’s be the SUNSHINE!
Please contact Lisa Adams to share the name of the special senior you will be connecting with.
Or, if you need a name of a special senior, please ask and one will be provided. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
RGPC Kids –“Let your light SHINE!” Matthew 5:16
RGPC Families and Kids!
During this time of transition where we are all trying to create a new “normal,” I’d like to offer these words of hope – Children are amazing! They will adapt and follow your lead during these unfamiliar days. Show them that even when we are faced with challenges, God is with us. We can talk to Him whenever we need to and rely on His strength to help us. Pray together! Take turns telling God your feelings. Your child will learn that when you do not have the answers, you reach out to God. The days and weeks ahead will definitely be a challenge. Children are watching! Let’s show them how to use our faith in God. Let’s show them how to pray. Let’s show them that with God’s strength, we will all get through this time together!
Below is a daily activity chart that will help children focus on Jesus throughout the day. Choose one activity or do them all 🙂 Spending the Day with Jesus is another option to use as you create daily schedules for your kids!
May God watch over you all, keeping you healthy and safe!
