Welcome to Kids Church
This term we are going to be looking at Growing to be more like Jesus. This week we look at what the first Be- Attitude is about.
Game – Empty nests!
Have 2 teams (you are the birds) …each team has an empty container (your nest) and the third container is full of something…soft toys, balls, blocks…place this in the middle.
On Go- a bird is able to fly to any nest…the other teams or the one in the middle and can take one object and take it back to their nest. Tag the next person to do the same. Only one person from your team at a time is flying to get an object. (You might like to have ago then when all birds are allowed to fly for a set time!) When time is up see who has an empty nest or the most objects!
Our inner attitudes (the way we think) changes the way we act.
- What do you think it means to be Poor in Spirit?
- What might be some of the things you might try to fill up the empty with? (for the son in the story it was money, parties, lots of friends)
- How did you find the prayer where we put out our hands and told God we needed him and asked him to fill us up? Do you think this could be something you would find helpful to do as you start each day?
I know I have been doing that each day this last week and asking God for strength and peace. He longs to fill us up!
Hopefully you have made your chart last week and are ready to add to it. Each week we will add little pictures and bits of our memory verses. I made mine out of a big cereal box and put a pipe cleaner handle on to hang it by. You could do the same or you could use half a sheet of the big cardboard you buy at the newsagent.
Last week we Coloured in our heading- I’m growing to be Like Jesus and stuck our first line of Philippians 2:5-9 on it. If you missed it you will find them here.
Today you add on the next bit of the verse and our picture for poor in Spirit. You will find that here.
You will need two bottles with same size neck.
Put some table salt in a zip- lock bag and add some colouring and mix. Pour this into one bottle and tape necks together.
Attach the labels.
