Friday youthwork

by Struthers Cumbernauld

Around 35 children at our Friday club tonight. Leah began with some singing before Tiffies spoke. She used bubbles and balls to show the difference between things that bring us closer to Jesus and last forever, and other things that, like bubbles, can be enjoyed for a time but will eventually pop. She encouraged the children to try to have one activity in their day that would help bring them closer to Jesus. In the meantime Marianne and Debbie worked with P1/2 on the story of David and Goliath. The younger children had their own time of games and crafts tonight, while the older children chose between biscuit decorating and games.

We had another new girl in our student zone tonight and started with a song led by Leah before splitting into groups. Tiffies and Leah talked to our newer girls about salvation and what the Bible says about it. We had some good questions and contributions from the girls. We closed with a time of prayer and most of the young people took part, which was really lovely. Scott led our older group and had a good discussion with them. A good and busy night all in.
