December 15: Surprise Ride (Tell us your story!)

*Plan ahead for this day's activity by arranging a visit to a close family member or friend. Let them know that you'll want them to tell your children of how Jesus has changed/affected their life. You can also ask them to share a Christmas tradition from their childhood. Wrap up a Surprise Ride certificate or set of keys for today's gift.

  • Read Philemon 1:6

"I pray that your partnership with us in the faith may be effective in deepening your understanding of every good thing we share for the sake of Christ."

  • Allow your children to open the "Surprise Ride" certificate and load them up in the car.

  • Travel to the home of a family member or friend prepared to share with your children their "Christ story." They could share about when the accepted Christ as Lord, a time when Christ was very near to them, or a childhood Christmas tradition they remember.

  • Thank your host and remind your children with today's verse that telling our stories is an important part of our faith.

  • Pray with your children. Ask God to give you boldness to share your own experiences of God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit in your lives.
