WELCOME to the FUMC Family Lent Observance 2021:
Creator Responsibility Educate Action Truth Inspiration Observation Nurture CARE
This Family Lent at Home Kit is an encouragement for your family to worship the Lord during Lent by considering His Creation together over the next six weeks.
“All creation is the Lord’s, and we are responsible for the ways in which we use and abuse it. Water, air, soil, minerals, energy resources, plants, animal life, and space are to be valued and conserved because they are God’s creation and not solely because they are useful to human beings. God has granted us stewardship of creation. We should meet these stewardship duties through acts of loving care and respect.” (The United Methodist Church Book of Discipline / Social Principles / The Natural World)

The Family Lent at Home Kit
To nurture our church families in faith and practice at home during this Lent of 2021.
There is much more in this kit than you may be able to do in six weeks! Use it throughout Lent 2021 and refer to it throughout the year for family worship and Creation Care activities.
As our COVID safety measures continue, we want to create a rich at-home Lent experience for our families. Families with young children as well as teens are encouraged to take a Kit.
All the activities are good for all ages.
This Kit corresponds with Lent Creation Care classes offered to the adults, and to our in-person and online sermons.
