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 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!
