What is the phone-free challenge?

During our Imperfect Family sermon series, we're challenging families and friends to spend quality time together free of distraction and digital devices. Check out some ideas below of how to do this! This isn't going to be easy so expect some obstacles, feedback, temptation to cave in and flip on the T.V., and learning moments along the way!

 

Idea #1: Have a conversation over dinner

Conversation Starters

 

Idea #2: Watch a wholesome movie and talk about it after

Movies are often humankind's attempt to solve questions that only God can answer. There are ton of great films that raise these questions, are safe for your family, and can start some really great conversations! Here's a short list:

  • Chronicles of Narnia - C.S. Lewis wrote these stories with Christ and the Bible in mind. There a ton of great topics for people of all ages to discuss.
  • Lord of the Rings - J.R.R. Tolkien was a friend and contemporary of C.S. Lewis. You'll won't get far into these films without finding something to talk about!
  • War Room - What role does prayer have in the life of your family? This film will challenge and encourage you to deepen your prayer life individually and as a family.
  • So Much More - We know this isn't an exhaustive list, but the point is to look for the teaching lessons in the movies you know and love! See something in the movie that scripture encourages? Point it out in God's word and celebrate it.  See something in the movie that God disapproves of? Teach your family what God says about our obedience.

 

Idea #3: Play a game

Playing games with family can reveal the worst and the best in us.  As these things come up, address them if necessary and turn the conversation to God, His word, and His expectations.  You'll be surprised how this will shape your response and your family.

 

Idea #4: spend time in god's word and prayer together

Although there are a million things that you can do as a family that will bring you closer and allow you to have a good time, at the end of the day it is ALL about Christ and His word that He has left for us.  Are you intimidated about teaching your children? Are you nervous to pray as a family? That's fine! Be nervous, but do it anyway.  Here's a few resources to get you started:

Help your kids hope in God

How do you do family devotions?

How to do devotions with really little kids

 

Need help with getting in the word personally?

How to read the Bible for yourself

 

Idea #5: go on a purposeful date

Married?

  • Date your spouse.
  • Talk about real and important stuff. (Not the kids new school & sports schedule)
  • Discuss scripture, what it means, and how it shapes the goals and dreams you have for your family and future.
  • Pray as a couple and seek how God would have you live out this most important earthly relationship you'll ever have.

Single or Dating?

  • Make sure that your priorities and preferences for your future spouse are in alignment with scripture.
  • Challenge your significant other or friends around you in the Lord.
  • Pursue that godly person, rather than hovering around their social feed.
  • Spend time with other believers that will encourage and confront you with biblical truths.
  • Get off the phone and experience God's creation with others.
