Weekly SNAC, 22 July 2018 - Kids Holiday Club 2018

The force was strong this week in Carlton as 160 kids and their leaders packed into our halls. Our young Padawan did craft, sang, danced, ate, played games, and laughed together. Our Parable Master, Tim, taught us the ways of God’s Kingdom using Jesus’ parables and some fun Star Wars challenges. We helped our friends Jed and Annie save the earth from the Evil Empire and destroy the Death Star before it destroyed us! Phew! A Fantastic Week!The force was strong this week in Carlton as 160 kids and their leaders packed into our halls. Our young Padawan did craft, sang, danced, ate, played games, and laughed together.

There were so many highlights at KHC this year! One of them was definitely hearing from God’s word about how God’s Kingdom Awakens. Here’s what we learnt each day.

On Day 1 we saw that God’s Kingdom is Promised. We looked at Revelation 21 and heard that God’s Kingdom is an amazing place that lasts forever. But there’s a problem. Because of our sin we can’t be part of God’s Kingdom.

On Day 2 we met a paralysed man. His friends lowered him through the roof to meet Jesus. Jesus healed the man! Amazing! But even more amazing was that Jesus forgave his sins! We saw that there is hope for us to be part of God’s Kingdom.On Day 2 we met a paralysed man. His friends lowered him through the roof to meet Jesus. Jesus healed the man! Amazing!

On Day 3 we saw Jesus on the cross through the eyes of the two criminals on crosses on either side of Jesus. One criminal thought Jesus was a failure. But the other criminal thought Jesus was King. We saw that Jesus is the King of God’s Kingdom. Through Jesus’ death and resurrection he forgives our sin and makes a way for us to be part of God’s Kingdom again if we turn back to God                    and believe the good news. Hooray!

On Day 4 we met 3 different people who met Jesus, the Philippian Jailer from the Bible, Fergus our KHC leader and Aracely a KHC kid. They told us all about how they met Jesus and put their trust in him. Now they’re part of God’s Kingdom.
A huge thanks goes out to all our volunteers who helped make this week a fantastic Kids Holiday Club! It’s a joy to partner in the gospel with our family here at SNAC.

The greatest highlight each year is having so many kids and families from our community hear the wonderful news of Jesus. Both kids and adults were given Bibles and many friendships were built and connections made! Please continue praying that God might use all that happened last week for his glory and to build his kingdom.

Mark 1:15 (our memory verse from this week)

Jesus said, ‘The time has come. God’s Kingdom will soon be here. Turn back to God and believe the good news!’
