After an Easter break, today was our last Family @ 4 for this year and it was great to see so many people back to enjoy the fun and fellowship. This month’s theme was all about spreading the gospel to the rest of the world. To tie in with this, our craft activities involved making a paper aeroplane, some traffic light biscuits, microphones and drawing ourselves around the world.
Before Jesus left earth to return to heaven, he gave one very short yet explicit command: ‘Go and make followers of all people in the world’ (Matthew 28:19). He didn’t mince his words; he didn’t suggest that the disciples should sit around waiting for people to come and ask them about Jesus. It’s a simple yet challenging command. However, the good news is that Jesus does not expect us to fulfil this command alone. He is with us always, until the very end of time.
As you can see in the picture the microphones and our ‘round the world’ picture looked fabulous and the children enjoyed singing and shouting with them throughout the session. After the craft and bible story we headed for dinner where we all enjoyed some hot dogs and ice cream!
A big thank you to all our volunteers who help out every month at Family @ 4 … from the members of the story team to the people working in the kitchen – we couldn’t do it without you all. So Family @ 4 will be back again in the Autumn – look out on the website for the dates, we look forward to seeing you there!
