Sunday Nov 22nd Children and Family Activities: Nehemiah Build a Wall

 

Song: For I’m Building a People of Power. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fAVdz4a7s6s

 

 

Sunday 22nd Nov is St Catherine’s Day- so we’re thinking about our church- not just the building but all the people and activities that belong there. But we haven’t been able to use our building for so much of this year.

How does that make us feel?

A long time ago- God’s people were sent away from their city Jerusalem and their land to live in a strange land. They were very sad.

A man called Nehemiah came up with a plan….

Watch it here: https://youtu.be/HdDvqWtVkro

Nehemiah prays to God about what has happened. He is very sad and knows that his people have done some wrong things. When things are tough for us, we are allowed to be sad or even cry. But like Nehemiah, we can turn to God to. We might need to think about how we got into the mess. But God hears our prayers and is always there for us- to help us sort things out.

Nehemiah acts – he asks the King for help- that’s a very brave thing to do if you’re a servant! But the king supports him and Nehemiah sets out for Jerusalem.  He and all the people work hard to mend the broken walls.

We have choices to make in hard times- let’s ask God to help us make good choices and do good things.

Nehemiah keeps going – his people still had enemies and they tried to stop him. They laughed at him, then threatened the people, then tried to get him to stop in other ways. But Nehemiah just kept going. When we’re doing what God wants, other people may try to stop us. When we’re doing the right thing, we can ask God for strength to keep going.

Nothing can stop God’s love for us.

Activities:

1.    


Build a Wall- play Jenga. If you don’t have any Jenga at home, we can lend games from Toy Library Wed 9-10.30am.

 

 

 

 

 

2.     See if you can make a domino run. It doesn’t have to be this big! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EBOE2_xYg3I

Pray

Dear Heavenly Father,

You are great and awesome.

Thank You for helping us when we face difficult times.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Sunday March 22nd - The Story of Ruth

Welcome to St Catherine's As we've now gone online for all our services, I'm trying out this as a blog. So if you follow down the page here we should share the service as if we were all together in our building! All the music and videos are links- so when we get to that part, click and listen to the readings and songs! We're looking at the story of Ruth - a little book tucked in after Judges and before Kings in the Old Testament. Many people celebrate Mothering Sunday today but I'd like to look at people who weren't related that closely, came from different countries and peoples but still took care of each other and found that God was faithful to them. Let's gather together this Sunday at 10.30 am worship! Welcome to our Service The Story of Ruth: Faithfulness Rises From Tragedy. We meet in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit   Amen Song: Mighty to Save click on:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H
