Here’s our next email for families…

The Good Samaritan

Jesus told Great Stories!

We’ve heard the amazing story of Easter and Jesus returning to his friends, but did you know Jesus was a great storyteller too?

Here’s a story he told told the crowd one day. Click here to go to the Youtube video

As usual we have some crafts and a prayer activity to try at home as well as a favourite song.

God bless you all,
Richard, Claire and Linda.

Craft & Colouring 
Song – Shine
This is the music you hear at the start of each of our Bible story videos!
Prayer Activity – God’s love for us all

  • Cut out several coloured hearts of the same size.
  •  Fold the hearts in half and cut out the middle sections- you can discard these or use them for something else!
  •  Open out the hearts and make a cut at the side of each heart.
  •  Link the hearts together by overlapping the cut edges and gluing them (a bit like making a paper chain).
  •  Attach a piece of ribbon to one of the end hearts and hang on a door knob!

Things to talk about and use for prayer…

  • talk about God’s love for everyone and how He wants us to show love to others
  • Children could write names of people on the hearts who they would like to know God’s love
  • Children could write names of family members/ friends on the hearts or choose a different colour to represent each person and pray that they will experience God’s love in the coming week
  • Children could write on the hearts things that God has made or done that show how much he loves us/ them in particular (especially any answered prayers!)
  • the different coloured hearts show that we are all different, but we are all joined together by the fact that God loves us!
