Gathering prayer:

Sing to the Lord  Do not fear. 

Sing of love and sing of hope  Do not fear. 

Sing of joy and sing of peace  Do not fear. 

Sing of the kingdom of God  Do not fear. 

Here among us here and now  Do not fear.

Amen

 

Welcome:

Today we are called to action, to go and teach and tell people about Jesus and what he did even when is is tough or we are faced with opposition.

Song:

Activity for now:

Print off this tangram and cut out. (Click Here to View)

Can you fit all the pieces together again to make? What other shapes can you make?

It's difficult isn't it, but don't give up just because you find it difficult. Keep going, you will get there in the end!!

 

MESSY ACTIVITY!!:

Place a 'mint thin' chocolate or similar on your forehead. Can you slide it down your face into your mouth without using your hands?

This might seem easy at first but actually its quite difficult!

What other challenges have you faced this week? Spend some time talking to someone about those challenges.

 

Activity for this week:

Create a jar to represent your life.

In the jar firstly put in some rocks until its nearly full. These rocks represent God - God should come first and take up the most room in our lives.

 

Next, add some gravel (until the jar seems full), this represents things such as family, friends, jobs - these take up a lot of time.

 

Next add some sand - to represent things like TV, social media. These things also fill up our lives and sometimes distract us from God.

 

Finally, add some water (pour until the jar is full) - to represent everything else in our lives.

 

If we were to put the gravel, sand and water in first, we couldn't fit the rocks in. This is the same with our lives: if we don't put God first, we get so busy with other things that our call to be disciples becomes really difficult.

Why not leave this jar on the side this week to remind you to put God first.

 

Prayer for today:

Dear God, Sometimes life can get tangled up and seem difficult.

Help us to remember that you are always with us so that we 'do not fear'

Amen.
