Friday youthwork

by Struthers Cumbernauld

A good first night back to our Friday club with 36 children, including 4 new children and a few faces we haven’t seen in a while coming back. Leah began with a great time of singing. Tiffies then spoke about the new year word. She had someone stand outside the church door that she had opened and pointed out that the person needed to respond to the invitation and come in. She talked to the children about ways they can respond to God’s invitation to come through the door He has opened for them and find Jesus as a very real friend. We closed in prayer before going to our arts and crafts, games and quiz activities.

In our student zone Heather began with a quiz. Scott then split us into groups to discuss the characteristics of Jesus and to back these up with verses from the Bible. We fed back and the list was extensive! Scott then spoke about the verse; “Imitate God, therefore, in everything you do, because you are his dear children.”

‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭5:1‬ and encouraged the young people to look at the list and take one of the characteristics of Jesus to work on in their own lives this week. We then split into groups for prayer and many young people took part.
