The Wise and Foolish Builder Snack

Snack for the story the wise and foolish builders made from wafers, cereal, cravers, rice paper, chocolate and icing, oh and  sugar sand!
Story snacks are always well received and a good reinforcer of the story.

Jesus Friend to All

We were doing the story on the Ten Lepers, with a focus on how Jesus was friends with all (a holiday club message we were revisiting) and even though they had leprosy He helped them and didn't shy away. We photocopied our hands to tell the story (one way we told it) drawing straight mouths on each of the hands turning to happy when healed. Moving on to write our own thank you's around the hands.

The photo above is something we thought of whilst photocopying, noticing our hands were all different and little details were being captured led us to talk about how Jesus was all of our friend's even if we are different. So we made posters of group of hands, which turned out lovely!!!

I think we will use the hand photocopying idea again!!

Junior Church Format

I have blogged about Junior Church/ Children's Church on many occasions but don't think I have ever written the order of the session any where! So I thought I'd take this opportunity to do so. The times are variable and a very rough guide, we move times/ adapt to the needs of the group and each session.
