Christmas Gift Book Ideas to Nurture the Faith of Children and Grandchildren


Before and after services on Sundays, December 3 and 10, and Wednesday evening, December 6, Generations Ministry will be displaying faith nurturing books for your review to consider giving as Christmas gifts to your children or grandchildren. What a great way to nurture the faith of the next generation by offering them a vehicle to focus their minds on scripturally based literature. Gifting a book will give you the opportunity to open a discussion about the book with your children or grandchildren so you and the Holy Spirit can help them incorporate God’s message into their lives. 

Books will be displayed according to age groups (preschool/elementary, middle and high school, college and young adult). The display table will be on the second floor of the Parish Hall. All books may be purchased on Amazon. After December 10, books will be placed in the Generations Ministry library and available for year long review and borrowing. The library is located in the church parlor on the shelf labeled “Generations Ministry.”
