JIGSAW anniversary – Sunday 15th May
JIGSAW (Jesus in Games, Stories and Worship) is our dynamic children’s programme. We teach on Sunday mornings for girls and boys between the ages of 3 and 11.
Each year JIGSAW celebrates its anniversary in May.
On 15th May, it was a joyful and fun time as the children led prayers, readings, and a drama about the Good Shepherd with the help of leaders. There was a lively game with balloons too!
At the recent easter weekend – we focused on the theme “three days to change your life”.
The apostle Peter was shown unfailing love when Jesus washed his feet following their Passover meal – which is often called the Last Supper – knowing that Peter would deny knowing Him following the arrest at the Garden. We have the holy example of the servant heart of Christ Jesus who came to rescue sinners.
When the centurion saw Jesus die, hung up on a cross as an object of scorn and shame, he realised Jesus was different to the criminals. This was all in God the Father’s plan that His Son was to be the holy, sinless sacrifice – He took our shame to give us honour. The centurion recognised at this moment that Jesus was no ordinary man.
Mary met the risen Lord – she was a witness to the resurrection of the Saviour of the world. In the Lord Jesus we have resurrection life from the deadness of sins and a glorious eternity for all who will trust in Him.
At our resurrection service to celebrate, two people shared their stories of how Jesus changed them, and they were baptised in water as an outward sign of their identity in Christ. We are rescued from the deadness of our sins into new spiritual life – born again.
