Let's go on an adventure!
Get comfy and everyone takes it in turn to hold their thumbs out and wiggle them up or down to express how they are and how their week has been. Allow everyone to share why. Perhaps share what God has been doing in your life this week. Why not take a moment to pray about what comes up?
Obstacle course – create a safe and simple obstacle course that kids can do blindfolded (e.g moving past a few objects or trying to walk across a rug etc.) You will need a scarf for a blindfold. Put the scarf on one of the persons in the pair – the other person guides them through by speaking instructions to the person walking through the obstacle course [point: learning to trust someone’s voice].
Grab a tasty snack and drink and join Ben on today's video as we look at our story; John 10:1-10

Play this worship music video and spend some time with God, asking Him to help you trust Him. Speak to Him about the things that you are uncertain about and invite Him to speak to you about them.
Take some time as a family reflecting on 2020 – what were some of the best parts and hardest parts of the adventure? Look forward to the adventure of the year 2021 – ask God to speak to you as a family about what He wants for you this year on the next part of the adventure of life with Him.
