Family Curriculum Resources

Packets of an Illustrated Lent for Families – Reflections on Prayer have been mailed to FBC Families.  If you need additional copies of any pages or would like us to send you a digital copy, please let Robin know ( ).

This is a curriculum we encourage your family to work through during this season alongside other families in our church.  Below is a calendar for when we will do each of the lessons.  We will have a lesson for each Sunday and each Wednesday between now and Easter Sunday (April 12).  You can choose any time of day to do the family lessons together.  I enclosed enough coloring sheets and activity pages in your packet for all the children in your family – whether younger or older than your Kindergartner-6th graders.  Encourage your whole family to be a part!

Christ Is Risen! Peace Be With You!

It is my hope and prayer that as we look through Scripture in our families, we can also be reminded of our place within the body of Christ, alongside fellow believers.  As you do the activities, have your kids share their experiences with friends by taking a photo and texting it to parents, or posting it and tagging the children’s Instagram, or writing letters to their friends.
