Robots Holiday Club 2013

We have just finished our church holiday club for this year with a great Sunday celebration service.  Our theme this year was Razzamatazz Robots using John Hardwick's wonderful resource.  We looked at the creation story and Noah and thought about how we are not God's robots, but unique individuals created in His image.

We made lots of robot based crafts this week, but we also decorated wooden money boxes on the day we looked at temptation.  The money boxes remind us that when we are saving for something, there can be a temptation to spend some of the money, but placing it in the box keeps it safer.

We also did some cooking, making animal shaped biscuits, remembering Noah and his ark.  On the final day we had the usual gunging of the winning team's chosen leader.

The Bible verse for this week's inspiration is the memory verse from the last day of holiday club and good reminder to us all:
 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God
with all your heart and with all your soul
and with all your mind.’ 
Matthew 22:37
Our prayer as a family is for all those who received their exam results and for their plans for the future.  May God guide them along the right path.  We rejoice with those who are rejoicing and we pray that those who did not receive what they were expecting will find the right next step.
With God's blessings from our family to yours,
Jo x
