WMC: February 2018
It was great to be back together again in January after the Christmas break.
Keith told us the story of the exodus from Egypt in the Godly Play style, which kept the children captivated and then we sang 'We are marching in the light of God' accompanied by a multitude of instruments. After a prayer we listened to the Fischy Music song 'Bad times won't last', remembering that however hard things may seem 'Bad times won't last, nothing lasts forever, good times will come, things will get better'.
We had lots of fun in the hall with the parachute before our drinks and snacks.
We will next be meeting on Sunday 18th February at 9:30 am in the church as we think about 'A Long Journey', our final part of Moses' story.
If you have children, grandchildren, friends who are at primary school you would be really welcome to come and join in the fun! For more information please phone me on 765421. Jane
