Faith families

God is with Us
Some days are better than others. Some days are great, and some days can be a bit rough. Some of us are having a few rough days at the moment, and that is very hard. It helps to have family and friends show their love and care. We also have our family of faith, our church family, to help us through hard times. Best of all, God is with us always, no matter what happens - loving us and helping us.
Family of Faith
We heard recently a story about Abraham and Sarah and learnt more about being part of a family of faith

In the bible story (from the book in the bible called 'Hebrews', chapter 11) Abraham and Sarah believed in God, followed God's way and God's love. They lived in tents and went on a journey. God promised Sarah and Abraham they would have many, many descendants (children, grandchildren, great grandchildren) - as many as the stars in the sky. Sarah and Abraham had faith and trusted God's promise. 

We remember God's promise to be with us always, and even if we can't see God with our eyes or touch God with our hands we can know and feel that God is with us, loving us.

Starry Night Art
We made some awesome starry night collage artwork... using black paper, fabric, metallic markers and of course tons of glorious, sparkly, messy star confetti! We replaced our artwork in the Chapel Street Art Gallery - go along and check it out!
