Fun for the Whole Family Hour Pack

Sail Into God’s Great Love With Fun-for-the-Whole-Family Hour

Many times when you hear about Church activities, they are centered on the Youth Group, the Women's Dept, the Men's Dept, or a children's function. It is not often that I have seen FAMILY activities planned. This activity pack is based on the Chronicles of Narnia (which my kids love!) and pairs families into groups to go on expeditions. While working on your expedition, your family will learn more about and feel God's love for you! There is something in this pack for people of all ages to enjoy from the young to the elderly. (Many of the elderly that I know get so much joy watching children use their imaginations and learn to develop a love for God!). I hope you pass this along to recommend to your church leaders. This could be a great winter time activity in your recreation center, or plan now to utilize this in the Spring when everyone is anxious to get outdoors! 

My kids LOVED the CD that was included, and have spent the majority of the week in the backyard using their binoculars and other expedition materials they had in their toy-boxes planning excursions. I LOVE activities that get their imaginations going for some productive creative play, and incorporating Christian principals and the love of the Lord is icing on the cake!
Here is more information from the Press Release: Dallas/Ft. Worth, TX – Group Publishing has set sail on a brand new expedition, where families will embark on an adventure to discover God’s love. In their very first Fun-for-the-Whole-Family Hour event, Group partners with Walden Media and 20th Century Fox, using scenes from the new Narnia movie, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. Fun-for-the-Whole-Family Hour combines eye-opening discussions and upbeat music with the thrilling adventure of Narnia in an experience that connects all ages with each other and with God.  
Fun-for-the-Whole-Family Hour is one action-packed hour where participants will discuss never-before-seen clips from the movie, listen to music, watch a skit, and grow in their faith. Participants will divide into family groups of no more than five. Each group is given their own expedition pack, which contains an interactive expedition map that uses water to reveal hidden messages, guiding each family to look at God’s transforming love in a whole new way. It also includes a CD with all the music so families can continue their adventure at home. Clips from the Narnia movie will help them explore how God’s love changes us. Fun-for-the-Whole-Family Hour makes reaching families easier than ever.
Fun-for-the-Whole-Family Hour is flexible, easy to implement, and a great value. Everything you need to get started is in the Leader Pack, which includes:
·         Leader Guide
·         DVD containing a promotional video and clips from The Voyage of the Dawn Treader 
·         CD containing clip art, publicity helps, drama script, and PowerPoint song lyrics slides
·         Family Expedition Pack (sample)
·         Publicity Poster (sample)
Fun-for-the-Whole-Family Hour came out of a desire to let families share in simple, life-changing experiences like the ones kids explore at Group’s vacation Bible school. “In Group’s many years of ministry experience, we’ve seen families connect in unique ways during VBS,” according to Group’s FamilyHiResColorShannon Velasquez. “Fun-for-the-Whole-Family Hour brings families together for laughter, drama, and music, creating a starting point for family faith-building conversations.” 
Group has a reputation of being hands-on in growing children’s relationships with Christ, and this new product does not disappoint. Nothing fires you up like seeing kids “get it” as you teach…and seeing the children you serve grow closer to God.  This practical, time-saving resource makes that happen.
