Ok, thanks for those of you who prayed me through today! Church ROCKED! I had a great time, we had a bunch of guest and EVERYTHING went perfect.
Here are a few pictures from our children’s service. We used a little cute white lamb (stuffed, sorry Valerie but we couldn’t find a real lamb :( ), passed it around for the kids to “mark” with red, black, blue and brown Sharpie’s. They were told to think of something that they did wrong as they marked the lamb. I used Isaiah 53:5 (look it up) to show them how Jesus paid the price. Then we used a cutout of Jesus to show that ONLY HE could do what he did. And that we don’t measure up. We don’t fit the mold, but we should try hard to be like Jesus. I really think the kids got it. I even had a rob and cloak (any of you Kings Ave peeps recognize that?) for them to wear to show it isn’t about looking but acting like Jesus. More pictures here!
Sheila (I so love her!) had a great idea to use a polaroid to take pictures of the kids in the mold, date them and give them each their picture to take home. The parents seemed to really like it. I know it’s not a craft but it’s as close as this Children's pastor gets to one! Also, she had the idea last night so she hit 4 different stores THIS MORNING before church looking for instant film for her prehistoric camera.
