Five days of activities and online events that speak about how we can often feel weak and scared but God gives us strength and peace.
Here you will find five days of online events, as well as information about what to pack in your Bags of Hope!
These online events have been designed to be used with families on a video conferencing platform (we recommend Zoom).
They should last between 30-40 minutes and will help everyone think a bit more about the Bags of Discovery with you have gifted them.
There are 5 sessions – simple in content and containing the following elements:
- Introduction – time to chat about what they have done, or will be doing at home, with their Bags of Discovery.
- Story – a story from the Bible to help develop the ideas that have been engaged with in the Bags of Discovery.
- Activity – a game or creative opportunity to think more about the story
- Prayer – a chance to stop and pray before ending the session
These will work best if you adapt them to your own context. For example, in these ever changing days, it may be that these events could be adapted to be used in an outside space, with a small group of families, meeting within social distancing guidelines.
Put together your Bags of Hope!
We’ve put together a list of materials to put into your bags – but why not get creative (and generous!) Make the bags a special treat to open the door to, and make sure you give clear indication about who you are, and how each family can get involved!
