On Tuesday and Wednesday the 20th and 21st of August about 19 children, with helpers and parents, met to have fun and learn something of the great love of our God.
We wanted the children to understand, “The (as described in The Jesus Story Book Bible) Wonderful, Never Stopping, Never Giving Up, Unbreaking, Always and Forever Love of God”, as demonstrated by Jesus here on Earth.
The children watched video clips that told the stories of The Four Fantastic Friends who let their paralysed friend down to the feet of Jesus through a hole in the roof and Zacchaeus, the man who didn’t have any friends except, of course, Jesus, The greatest most constant friend of all.
So, through craft activities such as making friendship bracelets, acrostics of the word ‘friend’, baking, model making and painting, we explored the qualities of friendship and what it means to be and have good friends.
We also did some acting, made a lot of noise, sang lots of songs and exclaimed – ‘Our God is a Great Big God and he Holds us in His Hands!”
