Scripture Reading: Ephesians 2:4-10
We are saved through faith alone, but we are also “created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand to be our way of life.”
Fill a clear pitcher with water. Have children add dirt, sticks and leaves to the pitcher. Explain that many poor families must use such dirty water for drinking, washing and bathing. Spend some time praying together, asking that God would use you to accomplish “good works” and help families in Kenya.
For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life.
“Washing for Water”
Consider hosting a car wash, dog wash or other water-related service activity. Donate any proceeds to provide clean water for villages in need.
About 41% of Kenyan children under 5 are anemic due to vitamin and mineral deficiencies — conditions worsened by frequent bouts of diarrhea and
other waterborne illnesses.

Creator and Heavenly Father, thank you for the gift of salvation that comes through Christ alone. Thank you also for allowing us to take part in your plan to accomplish good works that help children and families in need. Please lead us this week as we live by faith. May your mercy be visible in our lives. In the name of Jesus, we pray. Amen.
