This year for Lent you are invited to spend some time each week in a virtual Lent garden. Simply click on the pictures below and you’ll be taken to an interactive page with daily bible readings, prayers, gardening ideas, children’s stories, crafts, music and recipes. These activities are to be enjoyed by disciples of all ages.
So have fun and click on everything you see in the gardens. Start with the book on the park bench. This bible will open up a collection of daily bible readings, children’s story bible readings, prayers, and questions to think about throughout each week.
Once you’ve got these devotions at hand, go ahead and click around the rest of the garden to discover so much more.
The itty bitty library boxes unlock one or two video recordings from wonder-filled bible story books suggested in the devotions for reading that week.
The hanging flower basket will take you on a weekly adventure of garden musings and gardening ideas.
The guitar leaning against the tree sings out brand new and much loved hymns and songs that will connect you to our weekly bible stories and themes. You’ll want to sing along with every one of them.
Are you feeling like going for a walk? Click on the wooden door and walk into a world of labyrinth visits, reflections and opportunities.
Is it time to be creative? The garden gnome reveals a simple craft idea that makes use of materials that you likely already have at home.
And when it’s time for something to eat, click on the picnic basket for a new recipe or two to try out at home.
If you’d like to plan ahead, you can click below for a list of materials needed for the crafts and recipes. Supplies for Lent Garden Crafts and Recipes
