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.

Deuteronomy 28:2 ESV
Made for this
I’m All in
Modeling dough or clay
Tables and tablecloths—plastic or disposable
Piece of paper and pencil—one per group
We learned in Genesis that God is the master Creator. Can you imagine what it would be like to simply speak things into being—to be able to make something from nothing?
No one but God can do this. We can only make things out of the resources God has placed in the universe.
God created the animals, but He allowed Adam to name all of them. Let’s have some fun today and use the creativity that God placed in us all. We are going to make our own creatures and, like Adam, name them, too!
Make your own creations with the dough or clay and name their creation and list on paper at least three unique characteristics about it, such as diet, abilities, habitat, etc. Share your creation and post it of our facebook posts!
Did you have fun with this?
You know, I believe God had fun creating all the dierent species of animals and giving them such unique characteristics. I think He also must have delighted in watching Adam name all of the animal kingdom. And He enjoys seeing you use your special creative gifts, too!
For any additional support, please do get in touch with Rana Jones on 0506544098 and together with our many Cornerstone KIDS Ministry volunteers, we can provide you with ideas and recommendations for the kids to stay connected to Jesus and the word.
