Friday night youth work

by Struthers Cumbernauld

We had just over 30 children at our Friday club tonight. Leah began with some singing and then Tiffies taught us some new songs for our Nativity play. Following this, Jenny spoke about the story of Jesus calming the sea. She had the children joining in with actions throughout the story and talked about the storms that we can feel inside sometimes; we need Jesus to come and calm for us. We then had activities of arts and crafts, challenges and games. 

In our student zone we started with some games. Afterwards Zander spoke around the theme of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit. We have been talking about this in our Bible study groups over the last few weeks. Zander shared a bit of his own experience and talked about the importance of being relaxed in God's presence. We then had a short time of prayer and worship.
