October Family Virtue – Creativity

Our virtue for October is Creativity: Using your imagination to do something unique.

We hope that you’ll join us as we work to help your children grasp the importance of this virtue for their lives. Our Focus Group leaders and Storytellers will use Bible stories and activities each Sunday to teach your children about God. The video and GodTime cards below are helpful tools to help you teach them throughout the week at home! The first Sunday of the month we’ll also have additional Cue Resources available to help!
