Rejoice in the Lord always!

 "Rejoice in the Lord always, and again I say Rejoice!" | Philippians 4:4

Watch the video of this morning's Awesome Time and find out how Izak was able to blow up 24 balloons in under 2 minutes!

We also decorated cupcakes, planted little gardens, had fun with bubbles and played a silly game where we had to try not to laugh! All these things brought us joy, and we were reminded that God loves us and is with us always - even if we are not feeling very joyful. God is right there with us, helping us deal with whatever life throws at us.

The Philippians bible reading reminds us that God wants us to be calm and rest in the knowledge that Christ is in our hearts and minds. No matter what is going on in our lives, even if it’s one of those terrible, horrible, no-good, very bad days... God’s peace encourages us to not be troubled, but rather rest in the assurance that God’s peace is better than anything we will ever understand. God LOVES us. No matter what, ALL the time. Accepting the invitation to ‘God’s party’, means we will always carry a piece of Christ in our hearts and live thankfully.

God's Love flows like a River

 Last week, our Awesome Kids created a collaborative artwork, based on John's vision from Revelation 22:1-5. We were reminded that God's never ending love flows through us like a river.

It was also New Zealand Sign Language Week, so we had a go at learning how to sign our names in NZSL.

Here's a link to the NZ Sign Language alphabet poster. Try and learn your own name!
