Sunday Kids Autumn Term 2017
WHAT? Sunday Kids club
WHERE? St Helen’s, Darley (Churchtown area)
WHEN? 1st and 4th Sundays 11am
WHO? All children (if you are very young please bring a helper)
We will meet again on 3rd September and our first session will be ‘We are special and loved by God’.
We will begin by discussing ‘Who is Jesus?’ and then create our own profile during craft time and learn a little more about each other. We will also introduce our expectations for Sunday Kids club and ask for the children’s input in the creation of a few simple guidelines i.e. helpful hands, listening ears, being kind.
Our usual pattern after a short teaching session and group prayer is either to play a game, do drama or sing and make music followed by craft time. Our theme this term is learning more about Prayer. God loves us to talk to him and we shall use Bible stories to illustrate different ways we can do this and show that God is listening.
We have chosen prayer as our theme this term to build on our practice of sharing prayer requests, giving thanks, then each laying a hand on another’s shoulder and asking God to bless them by name.
We are invited into Church at the end of the service. This has a two-fold benefit – it’s good for the older members of the church family to encourage the younger ones and its also helps develop the children’s confidence to stand at the front and share something if they are willing. This could even be a two-way sharing with the congregation sometimes.
As always we are grateful for your continued prayers for the children’s ministry in our United Benefice.
