Family Worship

Walking in Love

The focus of this family time is to use five easy steps to teach your family that Paul writes to the Corinthian Christians, encouraging them to give generously to the believers in Jerusalem and reminding them that God loves a cheerful giver.


And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

1 Corinthians 13:13

Learn the Memory Verse together and say it throughout the week to help your family remember and apply what they have learned.


Write Thank You Notes

Asking children to reflect on what they are grateful for provides an excellent opportunity to explore how their generosity can make others feel good. Encourage your child to write thank you notes to friends, siblings, parents, or teachers to reinforce the value of appreciation.




Use these questions and points to have a conversation with your children about the Bible story.



  • Whom did Paul ask to give money? (the Corinthians)
  • What kind of giver does God love? (a cheerful giver) 
  • Paul compares giving money to planting what? (a farmer planting seeds)
  • Why might we need God’s help to be generous? Is it easy or difficult for you to share generously with others? 
  • Whom could we be generous with? 
  • What does generosity show other people about God? 
  • Why do you think it is sometimes hard to be generous? How can God help? 

Mission Moment

Robert Raikes (1736-1811)

What do you like doing at school… Reading? Wrting? Numbers? Playime? In England when Robert Ralkes was alive, almost no children went to school at all. Poor children worked all day on Monday, Tuesday, wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday in factories to earn money for their famlies. Sunday was their only free day - and on sunday lots of the children just caused trouble!

Robert Rakes wanted to help. Robert owned his town's newspaper. As he thought reading was important. He was Jesus’ friend - he thought Jesus was even more important! He wanted poor children to learn to read and write, and to learn about his friend Jesus. So Robert set up a school on Sundays so they could learn - and to keep them out of trouble! In the morning they learnt reading and writing. In the afternoon they went to church and learned about Jesus from the Bible.

He told people about the school in his newspaper. More and more children came. More and more schools were started. More and more children learned to read and write and learned about Jesus. Soon thousands, then millions of children were learning in Sunday school.

The government stopped children working all week and said they could go to school from Monday to Friday instead - but lots of the children kept going to sunday school to learn all about Jesus!

STEP 5. Pray!

God, thank You for all the good gifts and blessings You have given us. We are grateful! Remind us that You’ve given us everything we have, and because of that, we can give good things to others. Thank You for helping us be generous. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Encourage the kids to hold their hands out in front of them, with palms up, as if their hands were open to receive something. Tell them to listen and receive the blessing as you speak it over them. 

Blessing: May you experience God’s blessing when you are generous. May God give you the courage to give to others and show God’s love.
