Plan Family Activities for National Bible Week

Categories: Old Testament / New Testament

Here are several ideas:

Agree to read the Bible as a family for 15 minutes after dinner every day. Over dinner or before bed, share any Bible verse that has helped you that day. Assign a different task related to the Bible for each day of the week. Create a program that will work for your family. For instance:

Sunday - quote your favorite verse and discuss it.

Monday - have each member tell his or her favorite Bible story.

Tuesday - play twenty questions about a character in the Bible.

Wednesday - divide up the responsibility for writing a prayer for each meal on Thanksgiving. Make certain it includes a Bible verse. Ex. The Bible says to make a joyful noise unto the Lord. Thank you God for everyone sitting at this table. Thank you for ….

Thursday – after sharing your gratitude at dinner, ask everyone to share a favorite Bible riddle.

Here are some examples you can use, but you might have fun creating or finding your own:
