Blog for February 1, 2018
In the past year and a half, Kidszone has been growing in numbers and in ways of communicating the gospel. Several times a year we have a large group session. This is when we keep all of the children, ages 4 to grade 6 in the large room and do a lesson or presentation and activity or craft with all of the teachers and students together.
I love these times together. The children help each other and can see everyone learning the same lesson. Participation takes place in object lessons, prayer time, Question and Answer and sharing supplies in the activity time. We stay in the big room together and this enables teacher to work together and students to interact with new children and the teachers.
This past Sunday we had a presentation with Kerri-Jo Fehr. She is going to North Africa, in the near future, to bring the good news to people there. Her presentation began with a craft and she only allowed the children to finish a small part of it. Her presentation included some of her life story, how she came to understand how Jesus could save her to how her curiosity about the world and other cultures began. Then onto how God began to impress on her heart that Africa would be the place of sand where her feet would be with the gospel of peace.
Kerri-Jo ended the session with a completion of the craft which is a prayer reminder for the children to take home. I encourage you to have a conversation with your child about this Sunday’s activities. It was great to watch them ask questions and interact. I think they were fully engaged after Kerri-Jo showed a picture of her as a 5-year-old as she began her story.
Here are a few pictures of some of the wonderful activities and interactions and the presentation. They are taken from the early service. As we figure out schedules and photographers pictures will appear from the second service in the future.
If you have a mailbox the prayer cards will be there. If not, we will hand them out to your child. Thank you so much for entrusting your children into our care on Sunday mornings.
