Activities to help nurture faith.

This month, get the family together to play a game that connects with our Scripture theme! On long, thin strips of paper, write out verses that are particularly special for your family (some good verses to begin with are John 3:16, Romans 12:1-2, 1 Corinthians 13:13, and 1 Timothy 4:12). Tear the strips in half—divide some of them partway through the verse, and others between the verse and its chapter/verse reference number. Divide everybody into two teams, and give the front halves to one team and the other half to the second team. Place the strips facedown in two piles. Without looking, each player draws a strip from their team’s pile, reads it out loud, and asks a member from the other team to complete the verse or give the reference number, depending on which type it is. If the person asked cannot remember the right verse, the question becomes “open,” and anyone on either team can give the answer. Then the other team takes its turn to draw. Once all the strips have been drawn, the team who has completed the most verses correctly wins!
