"I provide the platform, you provide the people. I provide the content, you provide the connection."
This 6-session interactive online course known as a Family Encounter, will having you teaching your church families of elementary aged children the importance of gathering together in the presence of God and teaching kids biblical truths and foundations of the faith. Family Encounters are flexible to be used as your mid-week program for 6 weeks, a Family Camp or a Family Weekend Retreat.
Using the provided content, Leann will help your team to lead children and families in an onsite/online Family Encounter. You will collect everyday items to create a sensory learning environment for your onsite location and your online families, will create a prayer space in their homes as they learn the practice of coming to God in prayer and waiting on him to speak to their hearts. You as the leader, can use the teaching video as is and share it during the teaching time with your families or you could choose to watch it, learn the content, pray about how you will deliver the content adding in your own stories to personalize the message.
This series is where we learn that God wants to have a Heart to Heart conversation with each one of us. When we give our heart to Jesus, we invite him to come and sit on the throne of our heart. As we spend time with God in prayer, he often uses our five senses: sight, sound, taste, touch and smell to speak to our hearts.
When we take time to be still, we can meet with the Lord personally. He will open our spiritual eyes (Ephesians 1:18) and ears (Psalm 27:8) so we can see and hear from him. Your families will be encouraged to "be still" and take time to draw or write what the Lord is speaking to their hearts during this Family Encounter.
My prayer for you as you lead your families is that these sessions will transform your families and the children as they experience authentic faith, genuine relationships and real conversations.
BE STILL AND KNOW THAT I AM GOD
