Messy Church – Samuel – 28th July, 2019.
Today’s subject was the Old Testament prophet, Samuel. We watched a film about how he was given to the temple as a child, was called by God, listened to his word and became a great man. We had to search the church for clues to read who we should listen to and then we all talked about the people we listen to and what things we thought were important in our lives, like peace, love and friendship. Tim told us the story of the Man on his roof in a flood, who wouldn’t listen and we added Samuel to our Jesse Tree. Sam and Ellie told us about being on their school council, where they have to listen to their fellow pupils and then relay their suggestions to the teachers. We finished with ice creams, drinks and biscuits, before saying The Grace together..
