Pastor Robert Van Horn continues his sermon series from the Book of James with this week’s sermon titled “Dependency on God” from James 5:13-16.
“Jesus Loves You SNOW Much!” was the theme for the Kids Bible Club held the evening of February 2, 2019. The Bible lesson for the evening was about how God created the world and everything in it — including snowflakes! We learned that like snowflakes, God created us each different and beautiful.
The Kids Bible Club is held from 6:30-8:00 pm monthly on the first Saturday night of the month. Unfortunately our SNOW theme was cancelled last month due to winter weather! So we enjoyed the snow based crafts and games just as much this month.
After the introduction all together with a “Miss Snowflake Pageant” skit and singing the action song “God’s Love is Big” the group separated into older and younger classes for the Bible lesson and crafts. The younger group made pictures using snowflake stamps and paint while the older class painted snowflake suncatchers.
Next everyone joined together again for a trio of “snowball” (cotton balls!) games: a relay carrying snowballs on spoons, seeing who could blow the snowball the closest to the edge of the table without going off, and an indoor snowball fight!
After a break for snacks, we joined back in the church sanctuary for our closing! It was a great evening and everyone had a lot of fun! (A big thank you to all the adults who helped out!)
All kids ages 3-12 are invited to our next Kids Bible Club event on Saturday March 2, 2019 at 6:30-8:00 pm with the theme “Be a KINDNESS Super Hero”.
