This week in Children's Church we began work on our Bible verse which corresponds with the alphabet letter V: "Verily, verily I say to you, he that believes in Me has everlasting life" John 6:47. Sadie poses here with our classroom poster and weekly coloring sheet.
For our lesson we were visited by Penny the Penguin. Penny told us she had a surprise for us from her garden. Of course we were very excited--until she showed us a dead fern. :-( "Oh no!" Penny exclaimed, "I forgot to put this one in water."
Penny ran back to her garden and came back with another plant. Thank goodness! This one was healthy and alive.
After Penny left, I explained to the children that we can find LIFE in Christ. Like the dead fern, our sins lead to death and separate us from God. That is what this V verse is all about--with belief in Christ we can have life--EVERLASTING LIFE! What an amazing gift! Shannon :-)
