Pentecost

 Last week we celebrated Pentecost. We talked about how it's a bit like the birthday of the church. It's when a few people shared their faith with others and the church began to grow.

Fire and wind, both symbols of the Holy Spirit, were used in our Awesome Time activities. We made some fire-biscuits... cookies decorated with red and orange flame icing! We used our breath to blow bubbles and make some coloured bubble art. 

You can watch some of the activities here: https://youtu.be/ZrDTPGbgN04

Disciples

 Check out this video: https://youtu.be/xt8gZxZODik

...this is from Awesome Time on 16 May where we learnt about the 12 disciples. Some of our youth were challenged to a bible quiz... with marshmallows and m&ms for correct answers!

Thanks, Mum

 This morning our Awesome Kids made lavender bath salts, cards and flower pen toppers... wow, us mums were very spoilt! 

The lavender scent is to help us relax... and the salt is because we are 'salt of the earth'! ;o)

Stick with Jesus

 Last Sunday, our Awesome Kids created some arty wall hangings from driftwood and wool. Check them out in this video (thanks to Izak!)


We turned dried, dead, bits of driftwood...


and colourful wool...


...into these awesome hangings!


Reminding us that Jesus is the Vine and we are the BRANCHES. 
STICK with JESUS!
