‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.’ Deuteronomy 6:5 (ESV)
As we go into the month of March the plans for our upcoming children’s holiday club are well under way. Last year we had the wonderful opportunity to share the good news of the gospel for a week with young folks from our community. Through bible stories, games, crafts and much more we were able to tell kids about the wonderful saviour we serve through the sports themed holiday club, Champions Challenge. This year we look forward to another week, between the 9th -13th April, where we again share the gospel with the young people that come along for this year’s holiday club. Going Bananas is our theme as we look at characters from the Bible that appeared to go bananas for God, meaning those that were found and changed by God and those that obeyed, worshipped and praised Him even in the most unusual of circumstances. It promises to be a great week for the kids and adults taking part and we ask that you join with us in praying that all the plans will come together, the kids will come along and enjoy themselves and most importantly that they will leave knowing more about Jesus and his love for them. One of our memory verses during that week will be Deuteronomy 6:5, that is written above, which talks of loving God with our all, every part of us. We pray that in time God will use seeds that are planted during this week and bring them to fruition so that these young folks would know and love the saviour and come into a relationship with our Heavenly Father. We seek that the next generation would love the Lord our God with all their heart and with all their soul and all their might so that God might be glorified and a new generation enjoy Him. We know that there will be other holiday clubs, services and events going on over the Easter holidays we pray that up and down our land the true meaning of Easter, that of a risen Saviour would be heard loud and clear and young and old alike would respond to the message our world so desperately needs to hear.
