Friday youth work

by Struthers Cumbernauld

We had around 20 kids at our Friday club this week. We tried one or two older ones that were new to the kids, these went down well. Tiffies spoke to p3-7 about feeling guilt. The children wrote down on a piece of paper something they felt guilty for. An image of the cross was projected and each young person came and crumpled their paper and put in the bin beneath the cross. Tiffies spoke of how Jesus can take away all our guilt when we come to the cross. We closed with a short time of worship and song, where we took time to really think about the cross. Leah spoke to the p1/2's about heaven and shared some stories which the children really enjoyed. Our stations tonight included crafts, games and challenges involving marshmallow and balloon towers.

Mel started our student zone with some games. Zander then introduced our groups that were a time of sharing and praying together. Tiffies and Shev took the younger group, Scott and Leah with the teens and Zander with the young adults. There was some very good discussion and some lovely things shared tonight. One of our P7 girls who had been given a gospel of Mark last week shared that she had read from it every night last week and felt it brought her closer to God. We had a time of prayer in each group which was also very good.
