This week saw the first Praise Party of the term. We thought it appropriate to look at what God provides, since next week we will all be together for the harvest service.

Talking to God.

We started our new series opening up the topic of prayer. Teaching this accross the ages is a challenge. For the very little ones we introduced the fact that Prayer is a way of "talking" with God. The other groups were able to develop these ideas further, and over the coming weeks we will use the Psalms to look at a number of aspects of prayer.

Ready for a new term...

Well we were all set to go, when we heard the exciting news that one of the young people was going to be baptised in the morning. For those that don't know, in a Baptist Church this happens by the person going completey underwater, before coming up again. Often these celebrations take place in the evening, so we took the opportunity for all ofthe children to see what Baptism is about, and our littlies all got to come back to look at the Baptistry (bit like a funny shaped bath) after the service. One little chap said "I'm looking, but I'm NOT going in!"
