ART EXTRAVAGANZA

 Before the holidays, we had a huge cleanout of our art and craft cupboards. All our crafty resources were available to our Awesome Kids, and they unleashed their creativity and imagination at our Art Extravaganza Sunday! 

It might have looked chaotic and messy... but being able to potter, to explore different ideas, and express ourselves through art was very therapeutic. A little bit of art therapy does wonders. 

Here's a little video Izak put together showing the creatives in action.

The stressful part was for our Awesome Leaders.... cleaning up afterwards! But here's a photo to prove we were able to put everything back in order afterwards!

Art Therapy

On Sunday we talked about how sometimes our stomachs feel like they are tied up in knots. It might be because we are anxious, worried, scared or sad... but we heard a story about Jesus's friends, the disciples, and how when they were feeling all tied up in knots, Jesus came and breathed on them, and said, Peace be with you.

Knowing Jesus's love and peace is with us, helps unravel those knotty feelings and gives us a sense of calm and peace. Jesus wants us to share that love and peace with others through our kindness and caring.

In the Awesome Kids' room, we took a deep breath and delved into the art and craft cupboards... spreading all the amazing supplies out on the tables. It was a very happy, peaceful time for everyone, fossicking through all the resources and creating whatever we felt like. It was wonderful to see the young people expressing themselves through their art.

Some took bags of crafty resources home to make things during the holidays. Beth has got a head start, and her Mum shared this beautiful photo with us, of Beth's amazing artwork. Great job, Beth!

We look forward to seeing what everyone else makes!

The Empty Tomb

 


On Easter Sunday, our Awesome Kids made empty tombs, to celebrate the fact that Jesus is Risen!


Palm Sunday Procession

 Check out the Palm Sunday video, made by Izak | a MaTCh Production.





As well as being Palm Sunday, we also celebrated Harvest Festival. People brought gifts of produce and other food from their gardens and pantries, to be donated to other families.

In Awesome Time, we made edible 'gardens' with Sue. Those candy mushrooms were delicious!
