I originally saw the idea for Blessing Bags on a blog here and listed it in ideas for family ministry as a part of our 52.4.Him focus this year. We decided to take the Blessing Bag idea and have a Blessing Bag party.
It was a great experience, and knowing that this would bring about another great opportunity (handing out the blessing bag and getting to minister) was awesome! The kids had fun, and we got an opportunity to teach them about service.
Blessing bag parties can be done anytime, great for church get togethers, homeschool get togethers, or youth activities. It provides an opportunity to make any get together into a ministry focus.What a great way to put the focus on someone else and have a great time in the process.
Each family filled their bags and then were given some suggestions of things to add such as a Bible or New Testament, and gift cards to McDonalds or Chik Fil A. We are looking forward to handing ours out!
