Preparation for Activity

  • Make a booklet for each child, using Taking It Home Booklet. Customize the booklet to reflect the Creating Home sessions the group has done.

Description of Activity

Faith development happens mostly in the family home. To support the children's families as they continue on their journey of learning, send a candle and booklet home with each child on the last session.

This would be a wonderful project for someone in the congregation to make for each child and family.
