x CHILDREN’S WORSHIP 0322

MARCH 22, 2020 LENT 4

Hi Everyone.

Since we can’t gather together for church on Sunday or for Children’s worship we’re going to do things online. There is a video of me telling a story for the week. Below the story there are some “I Wonder” questions which all our young people are familiar with to have a discussion about the story.

There is also a wonderful craft suggestion, this week from Bronwen and her family and some pictures of the ones they created. I know Hope what I will be making after the children’s story!

I’ve also included link to a package of material from Children’s Illustrated Ministry which they are making available to us free of charge. This week’s package is on the 23rd Psalm and has lots to colouring and some things you can talk about.

As well there is a link at the bottom for more activities which our storytellers and doorkeepers have offered as ways to help in these long days.

Take Care and Stay Well,

Rev. Peter

CHILDREN’S TIME FOR THIS SUNDAY

I Wonder Questions:
I wonder why Jesus stopped to help the blind man?
I wonder what the blind man felt when he could now see?
I wonder why the neighbours didn’t recognize him?
I wonder why people were confused about what happened?
I wonder what the man who used to be blind thought about Jesus?
I wonder why John told this story?

CRAFT FOR THIS SUNDAY

Following the general directions of http://artfulparent.com/melted-crayon-stained-glass-door/ create some Melted Crayon Stained Glass Hearts to put in your window for your neighbours to see.  As the light shines through the hearts and you share their beauty with your neighbours, we will all be reminded that, although our lives are a little different right now, and we aren’t seeing our friends, family, and community in the same way we usually do, we can still reach out and be connected with one another.  And the beauty of what you have created can also be enjoyed by those in your home.
*Please note, this is an engaging craft for ages 3+ that requires only a few materials that you are very likely to have around your house.  Because of the use of hot pans from the oven it does require parent supervision.

How to Make a Melted Crayon Stained Glass Window This melted crayon stained glass window can be made by kids using melted crayon drawings and an application of vegetable oil. Easy and beautiful! artfulparent.com

The finished product! (thanks to Anna, Marshall, Joyea and Bronwen!)
