During this unusual season of not having toddler groups we have decided that Little Bears and Mini church will have a weekly online session, called Prayers & Bears Online!
We will be having a short time of singing, a treasure hunt and a story! The whole session will be about 20-30 minutes.
The treasure hunt will be something you can easily find from around your house or on a daily walk.
We are gathering from 10.45am and will start once we have gathered.
Things you will need:
- Your favourite cuddly toy
- Treasure of the week
- something to shake during the singing
Below, we have some amazing resources for Kids and Families at STwSS. Do bear in mind that some of these things you'll love, others will not work for your families - but the best thing we can do is try.
We are going to start in Mark's Gospel (or the life of Jesus in a kids bible) and use the BREAD idea from KXC.
Be still: Take a moment to quiet our hearts before reading together
Read: the bible together
Encounter: What is God saying to you through this scripture?
Apply: How am I going to apply this today?
Devote: Pray to God and devote this day to him.

Ephesians 3: 14-20
For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord's holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever!
