In this time of distance and ample time with our families, First Lutheran would like to offer you a Lenten Devotional that is specifically adapted for families with grade-school children (though believers of all ages are welcome to explore their faith in a new creative way through this resource).
As you seek to fill your time with arts and crafts, home schooling and screen time, we hope you can also add in some faith formation. The Lenten Devotional was written to carry you week-by-week through the Lenten season with special devotions for Holy Week, but please adapt it to your own family’s needs. The devotional is thematic rather than tied to the lectionary readings each Sunday, so if there is a particular story that interests you, go there first! This devotional was never intended to be overwhelming, but rather expansive to allow for free choice and flexibility.
We pray your family finds a meaningful Lenten journey within these pages and we look forward to the day when we can once again return to worship and learn together.
