We find that a bible-bop is a great way of moving from the games into the worship. Children prefer this to singing and this will draw them to the worship area. We suggest using it again after tea to draw people back to the worship area.

Arrow Craft

Each month we suggest a couple of crafts. One is a corporate activity to produce something to put up on the wall or in the church to show that children are present, active and part of the church. The other is individual for them to make something and take it home.


 

For the corporate craft we suggest supplying everyone with a brick shaped piece of paper (it could even be red paper) and invite them to decorate it. These could then be used in the prayers (below) and stuck to a church shaped box.

There is a very good template to make a house at DLTK kids. We would suggest using the black and white versions which can also be coloured:

They also have other ideas at:

Arrow Tea

We have found that sandwiches, crisps, sausage rolls, pizza, jelly and ice cream make a really good Sunday tea. The Notes suggest a number of "I wonder questions" to start conversations about the video and the story.

Arrow Response

Who, who, who, do you put you trust in We suggest calling everyone back to the worship space by repeating the bible-bop - Download - Sample
