Take time as a family this Lent to grow in faith together! This Lenten Family Resource explores how Jesus lived in his body on earth and invites us to take care of—and embrace the goodness of—our own bodies. Each week highlights a different story from Jesus’ life and connects it to shared human experiences—like growing up, taking naps, or drinking water. This is My Body seeks to inspire curiosity, wonder, and awe in all ages.

Epworth’s Children & Family Ministry Team will have kits available at the children’s Check-In Counter for families to take home beginning Sunday, February 26 or you can simply email [email protected] and Mary Roesti can send you all of the resources in a digital format.

Each family kit will include seven weekly family devotions consisting of a suggested scripture to read, a short reflection, discussion questions, an activity, a fun fact, and a prayer. From there, it is up to your family and your individual needs how you use the resource. Perhaps you will do one small piece of the weekly devotion each evening – or maybe you will spend about an hour once a week to explore these devotions together – heck, you could even invite another family over and do this together!

Our prayer is that this Lenten Family Resource will help you share in conversation about how God came to be human and live among us and what that means for your family today.
