Do parents know how their teenager(s) regard the stewardship of time, talents and treasure? Do students have any idea why their parents handle their finances like they do and what value they put on their time and talents? This family night will give parents and teens a great chance to talk about these things.
This activity is designed for a high school youth and parent night. You’ll need 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
Youth and parents will:
experience fun and sharing;
share concerns caused by the importance that money has in our society;
recognize and share the gifts God has given to their family apart from, or in addition to, financial blessings.
This Family Night has five parts:
Part 1: Mixers: “Small Change” and “Statistical Treasure Hunt”
Part 2: The Mmmmm Good M&Ms game
Part 3: Focus on the Giver
Part 4: Debriefing Session
Part 5: Closing Worship
Optional Part 6: Refreshments
