Grandparent's Day - Let's Focus on What Matters the Most!

This Sunday, September 13, 2020, is Grandparent's Day. Those of us who are grandparents can use this day to renew our commitment to pass on a confident heritage of faith to our grandchildren. Is there anything more important we could spend our time doing? 

So, as we look at the remainder of 2020, lets focus on passing confident faith to the children we love. There are many ways we are able to do this; consider the following . . . 

  • Casual conversation - when we are talking with our grandchildren about day-in-day-out life, look for opportunities to connect our conversation with our faith. For example; if you notice the beauty of the changing colors of Fall, use this opportunity to talk about the beauty of God's creation. Or, as you make Christmas cookies with your grandchildren, talk about how thankful you are for the ingredients God created which you use to make cookies. Talk about the best Gift ever, Jesus and how they may receive Him and share Him with others! 
  • Intentional conversation - if you know your grandchildren are facing something in particular - back to school, big test, difficulties with others, big decisions, concerns with covid, etc., make a point to talk with them about how God has good plans for them and they are always able to trust Him.
  • Focused activities - use resources (such as Eyelash Vipers, Pygmy Elephants, Pangolins & More! ) to help your grandchildren learn about God, His Word and how they are able to love, know and walk confidently with Him.
  • Prayer - pray for and with your grandchildren.
Lets recommit ourselves this Grandparent's Day to be focused and intentional about handing down a confident heritage of faith to the children we love!
