SUMMER 2015 CHILDREN’S ACTIVITY CLUB

CHILDREN’S ACTIVITY CLUB

 

A wonderful Activity Club was enjoyed by about 12 children and a group of adult leaders led so enthusiastically and ably by Jane.

The theme for the event which was held on the mornings of August 24th and 25th was “The Man who Calmed the Sea”.

The children listened attentively to the Biblical story of the little boat, carrying Jesus and the disciples, being tossed on the rough waters of Lake Galilee and how Jesus told his disciples not to worry because He was with them. They learned about how the disciples, who had had an unsuccessful fishing night, were told to cast their nets on the other side of the boat resulting in them hauling in their nets laden with fish. The story was linked with how Jesus is always with us whatever our problems and fears and will help us if only we listen to his word.

Craft work followed and the children made montage pictures of rough and calm seas; little boats from margarine tubs; storm shakers in plastic bottles; cakes decorated with blue icing and broken digestive biscuits to represent the beach; origami fish and apple boats with sliced cheese sails.

Action songs followed and the morning ended with a quiet time of prayer.

This was another exciting and stimulating Activity Club and our thanks go to Jane for being the inspirational leader, planner and organizer.
