FOR CHILDREN

Childrens Session
  • Sing the hymn ‘We are marching in the light of God
  • Ask the children to think of ways we can live in the light of God’s love, e.g. praying, serving, singing. Sing the song again, replacing the word ‘marching’ with the children’s suggestions.

 

 

Go with God 24/7

This week, whenever you switch on a light, think about God’s promise of eternal life.

Childrens Session
Very young childrens Session

Sing

To the tune: Twinkle, twinkle, little star

Farewell friends, as we depart,
keep these stories in our hearts.
Through these days of Lent we know,
that our faith in God may grow.
Through temptations in our days,
be like Jesus through our ways.

 

FOR YOUNG PEOPLE

Consider together what you have explored, what that means for each of you and how it might influence your daily lives. 

  • Go back to the definitions of ‘eternal’ from Share the Word and invite the young people to write these, or just the word ‘eternal’ onto a stone.

     Play the track Trust in You, Lauren Daigle on How Can It Be, during this activity.

  • Invite everyone to take their stone away as a reminder of God’s promise of eternal life.

 

Go with God 24/7

Look up this week and notice things you don’t normally see. Keep a journal about what you see and how this changes your perspective.
