A idea that the kids in your children's ministry can do while the program hasn't started yet. Suitable for children's work, where children gradually trickle in.
Today we reflect on the first church. A group of new believers who were all separate pieces at first, and now become a beautiful puzzle in which they are one with each other in everything and share with each other.
There is really a deep unity among the believers, in which they share everything with each other and agree on everything. It really is those wonderful honeymoon weeks of the first church. Everyone has food to eat. Rich people sell their house or a piece of land and give that money to the apostles. The apostles then shared this among the poor.
What you need:
- one or more puzzles (difficulty depending on age)
What to do:
Children who come in may help to make the puzzle or puzzles together. Can you do this in the 5 or 10 minutes we have?
