The Children's Ministry area is also being made new with a new addition, but it will not be ready until August 2017. So, due to available space issues on Wednesdays (the old Children's Ministry area) they had to limit registration in our mid-week ministry this year. I knew this was going to be the "plan" while the new area was being built, so a year ago I wrote, Science, the Bible & Fun to use with my grandsons while the new children's area was being built. (My grandsons attend my church's mid-week ministry.)
Today is the first day of our Science, the Bible & Fun! We decided to have it on Thursday nights this year, so their poppa is picking them up from school and we will have supper together. After supper we will spend time discovering more about God through fun science projects, work on crafts or bake something tasty and most importantly, learn about real Bible people who chose to love, know and follow God. We will talk about how we can do the same and spend time learning to pray the Psalms back to God. The boys will learn how to keep a prayer journal . . . it is my prayer at the end of our year of Science, the Bible & Fun, they will be boys who are serious about talking to and with God!
So, tonight we will be having fun with a science project where we combine yeast, dish soap and peroxide . . . we will learn about obeying from this project. We will make our prayer journals, play some fun games and spend time talking about Jeremiah 29 and 33 and how God promises to listen to and answer our prayers! Over the coming months we will learn about Noah, Jehoshaphat, Josiah, Jesus, Daniel, Caleb, John and the Judges - and have a lot of fun doing so!
As I mentioned, I wrote Science, the Bible & Fun to use with my grandsons, but it is available for you to use with your grandchildren/children, too! You'll find all the details at this link . . . check it out and try this free lesson, too! This is one tool you can use as a grandparent to pass faith to your grandchildren!
Welcome to, “Science, the Bible & Fun” which has 52 weeks of activities and Bible Adventures to help you pass on a heritage of faith to your grandchildren (children). Each week’s activities include a Science Project, Craft, Nature Walk or Cooking project, time for Active Games—the type which take just a minute to play (look these up on-line as for copyright reasons, I could not reprint them). Along with all these fun activities, you’ll find a verse to memorize each month, a portion of Psalms each week to read, think through and pray back to God along with the opportunity to look at real people from the Bible who chose to love, know and walk with God! As you get to know them, you will learn more about how to do this as well! Feel free to use any or all of these resources as best fit your schedule. Science, the Bible & Fun is available at this link!
