Start a New Tradition...

Our lives are crazy busy. It's way too easy to allow the stuff of life to take over and crowd out family time. We encourage families to go against the flow and make a conscious decision to set aside a time at least once a month to have a family night. Time to have a meal together, play together, create together, and learn together as a family. The rewards will amaze you! Each month we will post a recipe, a game/activity, a craft, a devotional, and a project of some sort to give you some ideas to get your started on your new adventure. Post pics of your family night on Facebook and tag AKJOY Church. We'd love to share your adventures!



July's Recipe

 Ranch Chicken and Potatoes

Four boneless, skinless chicken breasts

4 potatoes cubed

2 Cups ranch style dressing

Optional paprika

Spray the inside of the crockpot with cooking spray. Put the chicken on the bottom add the potatoes and then pour the dressing over top. Cover and cook on low for 4-5 hours. Longer if you like softer potatoes and less if you like firmer potatoes.





July's Devotional

Teacher and Lord

Key Verse:John 13:13 NIRV “You call me ‘Teacher’ and ‘Lord.’ You are right. That is what I am.”

Key Point:Jesus’ disciples call Him Teacher and Lord. When we learn about Jesus or from Him, He is our Teacher. When we choose to follow Him and make Him the most important one in our life, He is our Lord.

July's Craft

For this craft you will need:


  • construction paper

  • scissors

  • Markers - optional

  • glue or tape

  • popsicle sticks

G Cut out an apple shape and a cross shape from the construction paper and glue or tape them to popsicles sticks. You can use markers to decorate them if you wish.



July's Activity

July's activity goes along with the devotional. The instructions are in the PDF in the devotional section. You can use the apple and cross you made for the craft instead of a bead or eraser.


July's Science Project

This month we're doing a fun experiment with baking soda and vinegar. For this experiment you will need several narrow glasses, glass vases or test tubes, baking soda, food coloring, water, vinegar, and dish soap.

Our Christian begins with knowing God, but it doesn't stop there. The next step is making Him known by reaching out to help others and sharing the love of Jesus with them. Come join in at AKJOY Church
