Faith in God Sunday Challenge Cards

When I served in Primary I wanted to focus on Faith in God because it seems like it’s something that gets forgotten. Several years ago I came across an amazing idea from Stephani Yrungaray in a Primary Presidency Facebook group and knew that I had to give it a try. The Faith in God Sunday Challenge did work and the children really enjoyed it (you can see my 2 previous posts HERE and HERE). Since then I have had several people ask for more cards, so today I am sharing some.
Faith in God Sunday Challenge Idea
If you have used my previous cards, you might notice that these look a little different. I decided to update my Faith in God Sunday Challenge Cards to make them a little more printer/copier-friendly. I figured that some of you print one copy and then make copies at the church. My last sets of cards weren’t the best to copy, so I changed them up a bit.

Faith In God Sunday Challenge Idea

If you’re new to the Faith in God Sunday Challenge Cards, here’s a little info. Stephanie created this to help the primary children work on their Faith In God. Since the children only need to pass of 2 requirements from each category each year, you don’t need to do this every month. Our presidency chose to have our Faith in God Sunday every other month. By doing this every other month they would complete 6 activities a year (2 from each category).

How It Works

You will explain to the children that you are going to start having a Faith In God Challenge. On that particular Sunday the children will receive a ‘Sunday Challenge’ card. Tell them that they will then take the card home and complete the activity. Next, they need to have a parent sign and bring the card back the following Sunday for a treat! I wanted a parent signature so we knew that it actually got done. 🙂 One problem that we had was children running down to their parents right after church to have their parent sign the card. They would then come back and say that they had previously completed the requirement. I ended up making a rule that they had to take it home and bring it back the following week.

Rewards

Rewards are totally optional, but I think it gets the children excited to work on their Faith in God, so we chose to do rewards. At first we created a lollipop tree, here. The children would pick a lollipop from the tree after they brought their card back. A little later I decided to change it up a bit and created this fun High Five gift idea using sticky hands. The children seemed to really like those. A box filled with fun little prizes would also be great.

Need help tracking what has been done? I have some great Faith in God tracker sheets, HERE. You could also print out a tracker card for each child and then place them onto a ring. As they pass things off, check it off. I have created some Faith in God tracker cards HERE and HERE.

If you’re not a Primary worker but have Primary aged children, why not print out these cards and place them in a jar. Then on Sunday have your child(ren) pick a card and complete the task on the card.

I hope you enjoy my new set of Faith in God Sunday Challenge Cards and use them for your Primary or family. I would love to hear if you do and what you think, so leave a comment below! Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!

    These are great! We were talking about how to help our kids work on the Faith in God and then I came across these the next day. Talk about divine intervention! 🙂 Thank you for making these available to us, you are awesome!

    1. Yay! I’m so glad you like the cards and plan to use them. I know when we did this the children enjoyed it and actually worked on Faith in God. Thanks for the comment!

    Thanks for doing these. I am going to start them this week, but I think I’m going to do them monthly, because I think a lot of kids haven’t started on their Faith in God, at all. 🙂 I hope you are going to be doing more of these!

    1. Thanks for the comment, Jeanette, and for the reminder that I need to make more. 🙂 When we used these we had a lot more children actually working on their Faith in God. I will add this to my list and get some more posted. Thanks! *HUGS*
