Concordia Church is building a family faith resource library.  Check back again as we continue to add resources that we hope will be a blessing to your family’s faith journey.

Summer Family Faith Series – Six Days of Creation

Watch – Create — Learn

This summer, we are supporting families’ faith journeys by presenting the Six Days of Creation and helping families learn all about the amazing and beautiful creation God gave to us.  The story of creation: invites wonder at the majesty of God, affirms God’s love for us, and sparks gratitude for God’s precious gift of nature. Children (and their families) are invited to watch a short video story and lesson, create or complete the craft/activity (resources are downloadable), and learn about our beautiful planet (stories based on Genesis 1 and materials provided through Children’s Ministry via The Sunday School Store).

We always appreciate feedback that helps us better support your family’s faith journey.  Please reach out to Jen with comments, ideas, or questions at or call her at 773-463-1600 x402.
