How about creating some Holy Spirit encounters in your home during this time?  Each week we'll post a new idea here to help with bringing Holy Spirit into your home!  There are loads of resources listed below, but our ministry is all about Chasing God and Shaking Nations - so the two activities here will give you opportunities for ministry in your home, God's ready for an encounter with you and your family - are you? (Take a look at James 4:8)

In this video Esmé, from South Africa, explains how you get get children praying for healings. Esmé provide three fun objects that you can use. This will make the prayer time exciting, fun and POWERFUL. Our children are called to be powerful warriors.

Family Together

For many years Powerpack has produced Bible Study Notes for Children and Families.  We've given them a bit of a reformat and focus on families, added a few puzzles and have re-released them as 'Family Together // Daily Family Bible Devotions'. We've created a two-week set of 10 (Monday-Friday) available as free samples during lockdown.  We'd love feedback to improve them - so if you try them for ten days please could you email us and let us know what you think.

God has things to say!! Are we listening?

God wants to speak to us and He can do that in all sorts of ways. Rarely does He speak in an audible voice, most times it is through thoughts, impressions, pictures or feelings and of course the Bible and other people.

Identifying and praying about fear and anxiety.

Share together as a family about things that cause fear and anxiety (these could particularly be linked to the current crisis or more general).  Adults be honest (but be careful not to share things that could cause your children to be upset or more worried).

USE YOUR HOUSE!

Powerpack has a teaching series called ‘The Father’s House’ – The overall aim of this series is to introduce the children into relationship with God as Father and into Christian discipleship. For example the hall is a place of entry, so that particular session deals with salvation and entering in to God’s Kingdom, while the kitchen is a place of service and so on. During this time we thought you could use your house! here are some Powerpack resources to help you:
A4 sheet about each room for families.
All Fathers House Activity Sheets (all rooms)
Nick’s audio talk about using your house to pray available from Essential Christian £3
