Why did Jesus die?

And He died for all so that those who live should no longer live for themselves, but for the One who died for them and was raised.

So often we focus on the future hope (which is true). But it's supposed to change everything now.

Goliath's church

Apparently a new little boy at our church calls it 'Goliath's church' to distinguish it from his old church :-D

Elisha

What I've been working on.

Took rather more time than I'd budgetted, and there's so much more that I could do, but I needed to stop and call them finished.

I don't usually do shading, but I felt that with dark scenes inside tents, sunrises etc, it would really help. Probably bit off a bit more than I could chew, but I do feel it's heading in the direction I was aiming at, though it didn't quite get there!

Emmaus craft

We did the road to Emmaus on Sunday, and I wanted to focus on the bit which says:
"Did not the Messiah have to suffer these things and then enter his glory?’ And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself."
Only I didn't word it quite like that :-)

Here's our craft.


I stole/adapted the tagline from The Bible Project - simplified for wee ones.
I got the popout idea from Pinterest.

They could draw any Bible stories they liked inside, or copy out memory verses.

Shameless sticker plug: buy them here. I was pleased that one of the kids said, "I love those stickers" - because he didn't know I drew them!
