AT YOUR HOME
Dear Cornerstone parents,
We hope our awesome Cornerstone kids are enjoying their weekly lessons and activities at home. Please see below the links for this week in addition to extra material for each age group. We want to encourage you to enjoy and connect with the many groups via the online platform, Zoom. We ask you to have an extra activity box with blocks, Lego/Duplo, colouring papers and playdough for after the lesson and activities so the kids can play and continue doing things while you connect with others.
from Rana Jones,
on behalf of the Cornerstone Kids Teachers
LET'S GET READY! HERE IS A SIMPLE CHECK LIST
Set up a corner in your home with a throw, pillows and a device or laptop to show the online lessons.
Check the links for the lessons ahead of time and make sure they are downloaded and ready for the day – you’ll need to register yourselves with Life Church and it is for free.
Make sure your activity box is ready for the craft of the day: scissors, glue, coloured craft paper, white A4 paper, colouring pens, playdough, stickers and anything you want to add.
GET THE KIDS INVOLVED FROM THE BEGINNING OF THE MEETING
Kids to join the countdown ready for the beginning of the service!
Encourage kids to join you in worship.
Get them to help prepare the elements for the breaking of bread. If they are too young then include them by giving them a cracker and juice so they feel part of what we are remembering and declaring.
Include them in the tithe and offerings as many kids have been giving to God and this is a wonderful opportunity for them to continue. As a local church we are building up our alms fund that will go towards supporting families in need. What a wonderful thing they can give towards.
Pray with them.
