Snyder's United Methodist Church
 Hello Everyone: We are beginning a new year, can you believe it! I hope you all had an enjoyable Christmas with Christ being the center of your celebration. As we begin a new year, I would like to share some special devotions for the busy family for the next 8 weeks. If you find these devotions to be helpful to your family, I will continue sharing them throughout the year. Family time or devotions doesn’t need to be boring or formal. Use this time to laugh, act out passages, enjoy science experiments to investigate truths, many other activities to explore with this devotion. I encourage you to start with simple, familiar Scripture verses (which will be supplied in weekly emails.) Spend only a few moments studying with little ones. Let the time lengthen and the study grow deeper as children grow and their minds develop. There are challenges, especially during the teen years when children are going in so many directions. But it is worth forging ahead to grow your children in the Word. Try to schedule time for family devotions. You’ll build memories and strong bonds. Let God’s word light the pathway for your family.
P.S. Please open the attachments to see the First Week Devotion, use it throughout your week, start simple.
S – Schedule time to gather together
I - Involve you children
M – Mix in fun and hands-on experiences
P – Plan ahead and choose what you’ll do before each week starts
L – Let it become a legacy with capturing the memories
E – End each one with prayer
Blessings, Diana
