Friday youth work

by Struthers Cumbernauld

A good Friday club this week with lots of opportunities to get outdoors. Our theme for the meeting was the feeding of the 5000 and as we tried to spread a small snack between us all, we found it was impossible. We related this to the miracles of the loaves and fishes and thought about the care God has over the small details in our lives. Kids then went on to play indoor or outdoor games taking part in a scavenger hunt. Our younger kids played races which was part of their theme on running the race for God.

Our numbers continue to steadily increase in our high school meeting with 5 new people tonight. We began with a big games of rounders, which involved the youth leaders. We then had our meeting part with a short time of singing. Scott took the theme of preparation. He split young people into groups and asked them to think about preparing for a meeting. We then discussed this together. Scott made some comparisons with sports people and the need for them to prepare. He talked about the practical ways we can prepare to meet with God. It was very good and a lovely atmosphere was with us as we closed in prayer.
