FLYTE: faith. life. together.
When you think of spiritual disciplines, what comes to mind? Do you groan, and think not again? When someone says to you, “read your Bible every day” does that make you feel guilty, irritated, or confused? What are your first thoughts when you hear the words prayer and worship?
Over the next four weeks, our 4th-6th graders will be exploring these spiritual disciplines through the FLYTE curriculum. Specifically, we’ll be attempting to encourage your preteens to take personal responsibility for the following:
September 10th: What Do I Do in My Time Alone with God?
Bible passage: Matthew 14:13-33
September 17th: Why Should I Read My Bible?
Bible passage: Psalm 119:9-16, 33-40
September 24th: How Do I Pray?
Bible passage: Matthew 6:5-15
October 1st: What Is Worship?
Bible passage: Psalm 66
The purpose of these lessons is to encourage preteens to take responsibility for their time alone with God and to use Bible reading, prayer, and personal worship to grow their relationship with Him and to foster spiritual maturity.
Ways to connect as a family:
Read a chapter in Psalms together each day
Share a family prayer list
Develop family worship times where family members come together to worship God with each family member responsible for a different aspect of the worship time.
