Faith Formation at Home
Use this gift of time to grow your relationship with God.
Use Google Earth to virtually visit places around the world, and say a prayer for the area and its inhabitants.
You are inscribed on the palm of God’s hand (Isaiah 49:16)… use your hands to help you talk to God.
Pandemic Prayer Project
Watch this video to send CtK your prayers and see how they’re transformed when we finally gather in-person together again.
Pray with a Full Deck
The story can be traced back to at least 1788, and with each war or incursion there’s another iteration. Whatever the origination, it’s a lovely way to pray. Get out a deck of cards and “pray along” with the unknown soldier, using this most recent version of the story as a guide.
Head over to The Labyrinth Society and walk their Virtual Labyrinth or download a finger labyrinth. Guideposts Online Magazine offers four ways to pray in a labyrinth.

Bake with a Purpose
Do some international baking with these recipes from Heritage Camps. For Easter, make these meaningful Resurrection Cookies and live into the awe of the first Easter.
Go on Virtual Tours

FREE from Illustrated Ministry: Coloring pages! You can also click here to sign up for weekly Illustrated Ministry Faith Formation resources.
Make a Collage
Have fun with this collage project from Heritage Camps.
Get out your chalk and write a message of encouragement and togetherness on your sidewalk or driveway so people can see it as they walk or drive by. Click here for Biblical suggestions. If you can, it would be fun (and appreciated) if you wrote “thank you” to your package/postal delivery and waste management people, too. Don’t have chalk? Make a poster and hang it in a window that faces the street.
