In2mission is our Sunday club for children aged 3 years and over and we meet during the 10.30am Celebrate! service on 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month.

This morning, we heard again how Jesus said, ‘I am the Good Shepherd.’

We began our story with a beautiful field full of soft, green grass.

We added a stream of cool, fresh water to our field with pools shallow enough to splash and play in.

image

But we also learned that there were other pools which were deep and dark and dangerous..ones that you shouldn’t go near…and prickly brambles that scratch and tear.

image

Then we met the Good Shepherd who knows every part of the field and stream and also knows the places where it is dangerous to go.

image

The Good Shepherd carefully built a sheepfold…

image

…to keep his sheep safe.

image

At night the shepherd gathered his sheep into the fold…and his heart was filled with joy.

image

After we moved over to Church House our 3, 4 and 5 year olds decided that the Good Shepherd must be called Jesus and that perhaps the sheep were not called Flossie, Froo-Froo and Finbar but Alex, Amelia and Gracie. We thought that Jesus wants to look after us and keep us safe and that we should follow him. Just like the shepherd looks after his sheep.

Then it was time for cutting and sticking!

Join us on 25th May when we meet next. All children aged 3+ are welcome to come along.
