Family Night Fun

Here are some ideas you could use for home evening.

Friend Magazine, 2019/11 Nov

Song: “Faith” (Children’s Songbook, 96)

Scripture: Hebrews 11:1


  • Play the “Having Faith, Trusting God” matching game on page 11. Then cut out the pictures of each person and put them in a bowl.

  • Take turns picking a picture. Talk about how each person had faith in God’s promises. How were they blessed?

  • As a family, talk about how you can show faith this week. (See family manual, pages 175–176.*)

Gratitude Granola

This treat goes with the first idea below. Have family members say something they’re grateful for as they add each ingredient! Be sure to get an adult’s help with cooking.

  1. Preheat oven to 250°F (120°C).

  2. Mix together 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup honey, 1/4 cup oil, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, and a pinch of salt in a small bowl.

  3. Pour the honey mixture over 4 cups rolled oats and stir to combine.

  4. Press the oats onto a greased cookie sheet.

  5. Bake for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes.

  6. After the granola cools, you can add dried fruit, nuts, or chocolate!
