In Lent 2013 some young families at St. Luke began a daily evening devotional practice called Faith 5. Other families soon joined in and are loving these experience as they grow in faith, fun, and family unity. Several asked us to continue beyond Lent, and so this blog. Every six weeks of so we will post here a “Bible Plan” that will lay out some stories/texts to be used each week in the Faith 5 experience – beginning on Wednesday of each week.
You are encouraged to begin with the entire story on Wednesday, and then throughout the week focus on a verse or two, or an aspect of the story, coming back to the full story on the last day of the week (Tuesday.)
If you have any questions or need any support, please don’t hesitate to contact Pastor Kim. Then join in the conversation, sharing, and reflection with others on this blog.
We go forth in faith – together in the word of God.
April 3 – 9: John 21:4-6

Our first journey with Faith 5 is soon to come to an end. Easter is just around the corner. And if you are anything like one of the kids who has been journeying through Lent with Faith faith you’ve asked, “Do we have to stop after Easter?” Well, the answer is a resounding, NO! You don’t have to stop after Easter – in fact our Lenten journey has been the propelling beginning of what is a life-changing and life-equipping pattern.
And so this new blog. A place where you can find a schedule of Biblical texts to use with your family and friends as you continue using the daily Faith 5 practice in your home (if you wish to have texts chosen for you, or you can choose your own, or do a combo of both), where you can share your experiences with others, ask
questions that just stump you, share struggles, share laughs, and share the journey. Resources such as children’s Bibles, online resources, workshops, etc…will be posted, along with opportunities for further fellowship and connection with St. Luke folks and beyond.
So, we continue here…connecting to God, connecting to our faith, connecting to our families.
