The Children’s Lesson was about a village where the children stuck stars on each other when they did something well.
(I didn’t use a flash – thus the soft focus.)
But this one guy couldn’t seem to get anything right – so they stuck circles on him.
He was discouraged until he met a girl without any stickers – because they didn’t stick to her – the “praise” stars nor the “can’t-do-anything-right” circles.
She explained that she liked how her “Maker” made her, and encouraged him to visit his maker.
It was a great children’s lesson on how God has created us individually and special – and that his love is what really matters.
The offering was to benefit youth group activities – especially the fall retreat.
The last half of the program:
My Savior, My God
All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name
Give Thanks to the Lord – featuring Tyrell Greiner
The Comforter Has Come
Awesome God – featuring Josh Diffenderfer
