Our April Kids Bible Club held on April 6, 2019. The theme for the evening was “Let Your Light Shine” and we talked about how light is stronger than dark and Jesus’ words in Matthew 5:16 when he told people not to hide their light, but to let it shine so “others can see your good deeds and glorify God.”
We started off the evening with some glow sticks, the song “God Made Me Shine” and a short skit. The skit was about a monster under a little girl’s bed who was scared of the dark and the little girl shared with him that he didn’t ever need to be afraid because Jesus was with him.
After the opening, the group of 16 kids separated into two groups (older & younger) for their Bible lesson and craft. The younger group talked about different kinds of lights and how Jesus said he was the light of the world. The craft for the younger group was a water bottle lightning bug with a couple glow sticks inside!
The older group read several Bible verses that talked about light, did a science demonstration with a lit candle covered with a glass jar, and covered a flameless tea candle for their craft.
For game time, the kids all came together and enjoyed some balloon punch balls with “Jesus is the Light of the World” printed on them. We played a relay making baskets in the large trash cans with the punch balls and then took a break for a snack.
It was a great evening! Our next Kids Bible Club will be the first Saturday night of the month on May 4, 2019 from 6:30-8:00pm. All children 3-12 are invited! The theme for May is “Slime Time – or how can Jesus help us in sticky situations!”
