Hi River Kids!
How are you?! This new adventure of what I call “Home Stay” gives us a great chance to practice some of the things that we have been learning in River Kids. That God is bigger than any hard thing in our lives and that we can trust Him with our every day because He created us and loves us. Some of the ways that we stay close to God on a daily basis is to pick up the Bible and read a little bit and then write down a prayer in your prayer journal. Listening to worship music is also a great way to store away His love for us in our hearts and expressing our heart to Him in worship. We have something special for you during this time where we are all hunkered in at home with our families. You will find below some videos and activities to give you those moments where you can spend some time with God and feel the peace and love that He wants us to have!
