Taking It Home for March 3rd

Taking It Home for March 3rd

On Sunday, March 3rd, we introduced the theme “What does it mean to be a people of Journey?” Here are some resources to continue the discussion with your family.

With Your Kids (Ideas to engage Journey as a Family)

Family Adventure Ideas

Pilgrimage – the Journey Out

What places would be considered pilgrimages in your family? A special bench in a park where you shared news of a new family member? A place where a pet is buried? A National Park where a child made their first big hike? Name these places as places of pilgrimage for your family.
