neighbor and a troublemaking classmate try to derail their plans. Listen at kidscorner.net and subscribe to Kid’s Korner weekly emails. You can also download the Valentine Card Collection to share with family and friends.

Family Faith Formation ~ “In a comprehensive study of relational dynamics in more than 300 families spanning 35 years, family warmth was more correlated with faith transmission than any other relational factor,” says the folks at the Fuller Youth Institute. Take your family’s “temperature” this week and look for new ways to create a warm, loving accepting and encouraging home environment. (Faith Formation Ministries: crcna.org/FaithFormation)

The Gift of Hospitality ~ How can hosting a party, serving a meal or opening your home to house guests bring glory to God? Join Groundwork to examine Genesis 18:1-8; I Peter 4:8-11 and Romans 12:9-13 see why hospitality is both a virtue the Holy Spirit cultivates in all believers and a spiritual gift given to some.
