(Sunday Service resources)
We continue our series about growing in faith. God made us to be part of a community of believers for a really good reason - so we could encourage each other and help keep each other on the right track. That’s been hard lately, but hopefully we can start meeting together again soon.
This week we are going to do a StAKs zoom at 11am. If you haven’t received an email from us with the link, contact us now at email@example.com.
Ross reckons he doesn’t need anyone else in his church. I wonder if Naomi can talk some sense into him?
It’s really fun to read the Old Testament sometimes. The book of Proverbs includes a bunch of sayings we can learn from - each verse is a different saying.
Read the whole section and choose your favourite. Here are mine: verses 13, 14, 15, 18, 25 and 26.
It’s good that we cover hard topics at St Alfred’s, but there is a problem. We looked and looked, but really couldn’t find a clip that suited this week’s topic.
So here is a more general clip about God’s kingdom by Crossroads Kids. It sort of, kind of, nearly, maybe, almost covers this week’s topic of accountability - or at least us working together in the church. But it does look at how God’s kingdom works.
AND … it was filmed while their church was in lockdown. It’s good to remember we aren’t the only ones who’ve gone through all this. God has been working through other churches in lockdown as well.
It’s tricky to know where to start with this Bible reading. So we have a couple of general questions for you, then a few based on particular proverbs.
Read the passage. Everybody choose their favourite proverb and explain why you like it. Otherwise, try a couple of these proverbs.
How about you make a church, including some people. All you need is an envelope, scissors, textas and glue. You can even use paddle pop sticks if you want.
The idea is from Bible Crafts by Jenny. You can find a link at:
Have fun making this.
We are all part of the church and can help build each other up. The good folks at cartoon church have this great colouring in. You get to draw faces on the people as you go. How much fun is that?
Please share any of your completed crafts or activities on the StAKs Online Facebook page or email Ross and Naomi.
And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
Last Week’s Verse
For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.
