Yesterday, on Sunday 27th November, a special Children’s service was held, in celebration of our beautiful children.
Lance, Michelle, Roger & Deidre and their dedicated teams joined the children in sharing with us through song, dance and video what they had learned over the past year.
The Theme for 2011 for 3yrs to Grade 2 was “The Big Questions.”
Here are just a few of the children’s answers below. 🙂
Who is Jesus?
“The Son of God”, “Gods Son”, “The King”
What did you learn this term?
“Jesus is powerful”, “we have to love each other”, “God made the world and if we believe in him we will go to heaven”, “to respect God”
What Bible verses did you learn?
John 14:6 “Jesus says I am the way the truth and the life”
Why do we need Jesus?
“So we can go to heaven”
The grade 3 to 7’s put the Gospel into colours for us.
Collossians 1: 16
“Everything was created by God and for God” – God created each person to have a relationship with him.
BLACK – Romans 3: 23 “Sin is what separates us from God” – We choose to disobey God.
RED – Romans 5:8 “Jesus died on the cross”
WHITE – John 3: 5 “I tell you the truth; no-one can enter the Kingdom of God unless he is born of water and the Spirit”
Isaiah 1:18 “Come now, let us reason together,” says the Lord. “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow, though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.”
BLUE – Acts 2: 41 “Those who accepted his message were baptised, and about three thousand were added to their number that day.”
2 Peter 3:18 “But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever! Amen.
GOLD – Colossians 1: 16 “For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him.
Before the close of this joyful and inspirational service Tanna, Michael, Lerato and Sanele were baptised to the loud applause of the congregation!
We were encouraged by Lance to take time out for our children this holiday and spend valuable time with them, our greatest blessings. AMEN!
