LENT FAMILY Spiritual Practices
This Lenten Season, MIPC is offering 6 practices, one per week, for you to try alone, with others, or with your family. The hope is that these practices will draw you and your children deeper into the Lenten experience and prepare everyone for Easter Sunday.
A link to the materials can be found here.
LENT FAMILY NIGHT ideas LINKS
Lent Pretzels—Pretzels are a traditional Lenten food because their shape calls to mind arms crossed in prayer. Google “lent pretzels” to learn more. Here is a recipe for making pretzels:
Bonus: soft pretzels are a great movie food! Plan ahead and make some for movie night instead of popcorn!
Easter Tomb—create a replica of Jesus’ empty tomb. Here’s a really cool way to do it that involves growing seeds in a little rock garden. (You’ll need to start a couple of weeks before Easter for this one)

Family Involvement Leads to Sticky Faith
When children are baptized at MIPC, we commit to nurturing our children in their faith. Safe dialogue about faith includes an exploration of what we believe and way, as well as openness to questions and doubts. Children who have relationships at their church with people they can talk with openly about faith, and who are able to talk with their parents openly about faith are more likely to have their faith stick past childhood. We invite parents to participate in faith events with their kids, to volunteer in Sunday School, and to provide opportunities for relationship development and dialogue.
