Friday youth work

by Struthers Cumbernauld

Tonight, at Struthers Church we had 23 kids at our youth club. We started with a time of very lively singing which Tiffies led. Jenny then spoke about the wise and foolish builders. She used a foundation of balloons for the children to stand on and compared this with a foundation of bricks. The children loved the noisy result of trying to stand on the balloons! She likened this to building our lives on things that are unreliable, but when we build on Jesus we will find He is a very reliable foundation. We then had stations with team challenges, arts and crafts and games. Lots of fun had by all!

In our student zone we began with some free time tonight to let the young people catch up with friends. Following this, we had singing led by Leah before Zander split us into groups to continue looking at the story of the prodigal son. There was some really good discussion and questions from the young people. We finished by closing in prayer in our groups. It was a great night.
