Daniel in the Lion's Den. By Isla and her Dad.
Making a place to shelter........
Sunday Stars 11th October 2020
It’s the school holidays, so there were only 2 families today, but the children told us about their plans for the holidays.
Today’s story was Jesus walks on water.
Today’s theme was Jesus is with us even when we are confused & scared
The warmup activity was hopscotch & instead of counting as you go say ’The Lord your God is with you’. Here’s some pictures of Isla playing hopscotch:
Ally read today’s bible verse:
The time is coming when people will say to Jerusalem
Zion, don’t be afraid
Don’t give up
The Lord your God is with you
He is the Mighty Warrior who saves
He will take great delight in you
In his love he will no longer punish you
Instead, he will sing for joy because of you
Today’s story was told as a poem:
Today’s game was a guessing game. We had pictures of things taken at strange angles or close up & the children had to guess what the item was, then we showed them a picture of the item from a normal position / distance. The children (& parents) had great fun guessing what the items were. Then the children showed us something close up & everyone had to guess what it was.
This game showed that things that we would normally recognise might be more difficult to recognise from a different angle or if we don’t see the thing properly. Normally the disciples would recognise Jesus but today they didn’t. Sometimes we don’t recognise people we know because they have a hat on, are wearing glasses or have grown their hair or got a haircut.
After every line then everyone says, ‘Let me know you are with me’.
