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.

PART 2 – JESUS AT SIMON’S HOUSE
THE MAIN IDEA
EVERYDAY, I AM WHO JESUS SAYS I AM
“…they will call him (that’s Jesus!) Immanuel, which means ‘God is with us.’ ”
A. Take a few minutes, with the help of your family, to answer these questions:
WHAT DO YOU THINK IS GOOD ABOUT FORGIVING OTHERS?
WHAT DO YOU THINK FORGIVING MEAN?
B. Draw a picture of how you see Jesus, then draw yourself with Him! Be creative, you can draw yourself holding His hand, playing football with Him or enjoying reading a book together. Jesus is our best friend and He is always with us. Write under the picture the scripture of the day.
EAGLES & LIONS (7-11) YEARS OLD
“…if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us…”
1 JOHN 1:9 NLT
The Big Point:
I CAN ASK GOD TO GIVE ME GRACE WHEN I FEEL GUILTY.
A. PARENTS QUESTIONS – With the help of your parents try to answer these questions:
HOW CAN YOU SHOW GOD YOU’RE THANKFUL HE FORGIVES YOU?
WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU CAN DO TO HELP OTHER PEOPLE WHO FEEL GUILTY?
