Faithful Sheep at Messy Church
On Saturday 11th January Messy Church explored Matthew 25:31-40 where we are told that Jesus will separate the 'sheep' from the 'goats' when he returns. We learnt that the sheep are those who believe in and follow Jesus and the goats are those who do not. We also learnt that there is nothing we can do in order to earn God's salvation and forgiveness - equally, God offers his free gift of salvation and a relationship with him to everyone (the good and the bad).
There were lots of crafts centred around the sheep theme. We also included a new section to the Messy Church format - a 'Welcome' where we have a drink and an activity to keep little hands busy for the first 10min. Then we hear the Bible story read to us before we start to explore the theme in the creative section of the afternoon.
We had a great time and we hope to see you again soon.
Our next Messy Church is on Saturday 15th February, 3:30-5:30pm at the Queen Mary Centre in Wisbech.
