Strengthen your family’s bond and grow in faith together at home with a new Home Point learning opportunity: The Fruit of the Spirit Online Class. This will be a nine-week study designed for families with children and teens to do in the home. Each week, we will learn about a different fruit of the spirit and how to use it in our everyday lives. This class will have a short introduction video and families can then have a short study with a downloaded at-home workbook. Content will be released every week at stlukesokc.org/homepoint starting Wednesday, September 16.
Create nine experiences at home over the coming nine weeks with a focus on each of the nine fruit of the Spirit.
Ideas and resources to help make the process fun and practical. Feel free to adjust these ideas to your family’s needs or come up with your own.
FOUNDATION REMINDER The fruit of the Spirit grows out of an abiding relationship with Jesus Christ. Fruit is produced in us not by us. But we have a part to play by submitting ourselves to God and inviting Him to nurture His character in us and in our homes.
BUT THE FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT IS LOVE, JOY, PEACE, PATIENCE, KINDNESS, GOODNESS, FAITHFULNESS, GENTLENESS AND SELF-CONTROL.
AGAINST SUCH THINGS THERE IS NO LAW.
Week 2 - Joy - Bearing Fruit at Home (Release Date - September 23)
What is Joy
Joy comes from the Lord in good times and bad. It is a deep sense of well-being that is not determined by our circumstances. Gratitude and joy go hand in hand as we focus on Him.
The Lord has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy – Psalm 126:3
