We’ve had a great month in junior church. Everyone came back from the Easter holidays with lots of energy!
On the 14th it was Christian Aid Sunday, so we learned about the refugee crisis. We talked about how much we loved are homes and how difficult it would be to leave them. We decided that we should all be more like Jesus and help people find homes, like he does for us in heaven. In the Pebbles we discussed how you are never too young to help people. To remind us of this we made helping hands. In the middle of the hands we drew all the things we where going to do in the week to help people (especially our parents). In Rocks we played a board game which showed us some of the difficulties refugees face. It reminded us that an important part of being a Christian is being active, so that we can help solve problems.
On Sunday the 21st we learned about the Holy Ghost and how God is always with us. We talked about how God is our ultimate friend, he is always with us, listens to us and tries to help us. After seeing what a good friend God was we decided that we should all try to be more giving friends. In Pebbles we made friendship bracelets out of pipe cleaners and paper charms which we decorated. I was very touched to be given one of the bracelets. In the Rocks we made warm fuzzies (pompoms). The idea behind them is you make the pompom and then give it to a friend who then feels all warm and fuzzy inside! Unfortunately, quite a few of the children were so enamored with their creation that they kept them for themselves, but they assured us that they would make more at home to give to their friends.
There will be confirmation classes running for children aged 7+. The dates have yet to be confirmed but it will run before the end of the summer term. If your child would be interested in doing the course please email Cal at [email protected]
We are looking forward to having another fantastic month at junior church !
