Family Month of PrayerA prayer journey for the entire family.
There are very few things that have a greater impact upon the health of strong biblical families than prayer. Not only praying FOR our families, but also praying WITH them.
With this in mind, Christian Grandparenting Network is thrilled to invite you and all the members of your family to join us this January as we observe Family Month of Prayer.
GrandCamps is a unique, grand faith adventure for grandparents and their grade-school age grandchildren focused on leaving a faith-legacy for the next generations. Through purposeful activities that grandparents and grandchildren experience together, to discovering from God’s Word what it means to walk in the truth, to building a treasure chest of life-changing memories—all in an environment that invites having a pile of fun—this will be a time for building memories that will last a lifetime! We also offer a single day Grand Day Out event for churches, as well as our Do-It-Yourself Field Guide for grandparents who would like to do their own family GrandCamp.

The celebration of Thanksgiving is an excellent time to pour into your grandchildren. Often, extended family gatherings occur and the day passes quickly without taking time to personally connect with grandchildren or intentionally pass on faith in Christ. The Thanksgiving ideas are divided into four categories: teaching, crafts, activities, and mealtime and food. Evaluate your current Thanksgiving traditions and determine how you can better use Thanksgiving to make lasting memories and build the faith of your family.
