It’s a new year and for PULSE that means it’s time to commit

8 January 2018

There’s no time like the start of a new year to get into shape. That’s why last Sunday more than two dozen 5 to 11 year olds, together with their leaders could be seen |(and heard) working out to a high energy, super fit version of that age old party game Simon Says. 

But it wasn’t just the youngsters bodies that were benefiting from all this exercise. No, in PULSE January’s theme is Commitment and over the next four weeks we’ll be finding out how “being godly” takes as much commitment and as much regular practice as any bespoke exercise plan. 

The teaching in week one was based on the story from Matthew’s gospel about the wise and foolish men who each built a house, only for one to see it swept away by wind and rain. Using a extra strong box for the foundations of one and paper for the other the children first built two lego houses. Then as it was a exceptionally still and sunny day – not even a hint of drizzle – high pressure water guns were brought in to wreak havoc. However, it wasn’t all play as following this the youngsters split up into their own, age appropriate groups to delve deeper into this parable. 

This week’s Bottom Line was “Practice hearing and doing what God says” and the memory verse from 1 Timothy, Chapter 8 was “Training the body has some value, But being godly has value in every way. It promises help for the life you are now living and the life to come.” 

To close each of the children were given their own log book which week by week will help them engage their families in the material they have been talking, thinking and praying about here at church.
