Friday yourhwork

by Struthers Cumbernauld


We had just under 40 children for our Friday club tonight, including a couple of new kids. Tiffies took some singing before speaking about trust. She used different trust games, where friends had to trust they wouldn't be dropped, or soaked. She told the story of Jesus calming the storms and linked this to the storms we can face in our own lives. The children listened particularly well as she talked about some of the storms that children can face and how real it can be for them. There was a real grip of God there as we closed in prayer. We then had some games and arts and crafts.


In our student zone Hannah began the night with some games. After the games, we came together and Tiffies led a song that some of the newer girls had requested to sing. We then split into groups. Tiffies, Shev and Graeme worked with the S1/2 group on the nativity play while scott led a discussion around the changing power of Jesus and how He often deals with us a layer at a time. The young people were able to relate to this very well.


Midweek meetings

Newmains

The Newmains meeting went well this week. We started with a short time of singing before having two up to date reports. The people shared how God had spoken to them in a very direct way and it brought about a change of heart and attitude. Mark then spoke on Matthew 22:37, focusing on the importance of giving our entire lives to God out of a place of love for Him. There was a lovely deep atmosphere of the love of Jesus at the end of the speaking. We had a short worship time together putting into action something of what we had heard through the speaking. It was a precious time of coming to give of our love to Jesus who has become a closest friend to many of us.

 

Airdrie 

At the Airdrie meeting John led some singing before we had a couple of up to date reports. Rae then spoke from Pilgrim's Progress on how God calls our weak characteristics by name so that he might make us strong. We then had a lovely worship time with some singing in the Spirit. 


Friday youthwork

A busy Friday club with around 35 children. Leah began with some singing. Tiffies then spoke about darkness and how in the darkness we can see the light shining more brightly. She used a torch to illustrate this and talked about Jesus being the light of the world, and the darker things get, the more brightly His light shines. P1/2 had a similar focus. The children made some paper lamps and enjoyed some games.


In our student zone, Mel and Hannah started off with team games of Pictionary. Everyone got involved and it was a lot of fun. Following this, Tiffies talked about ideas for this year's Nativity before we split into groups to do some planning. We fed back and then had a time of prayer. Most young people took part which was great. It was a nice chance to pray for the upcoming Nativity.
