GO Kids

We are back in our building!

We are so excited to once again gather together for Kids Church. Nothing compares to person-to-person interaction. The ability for kids to engage through conversation is something we are so excited about. Kids Church lessons use small groups led by trained youth leaders for: Discussion Times,  Bible Reading, and Activities

As there are procedures in place based on the Alberta Government requirements, and these requirements change regularly, we ask you to check back here on occasion for any updates we may have for you.  

Faith Case:  The Beatitudes

Welcome to Faith Case: The Beatitudes. We are helping kids discover the Beatitudes and explore how each one applies to their lives. The whole investigation is summed up in the words of our Session 1 Faith Fact: I will live for God.  (Psalm 128:1)

The beatitudes as written in Matthew 5:3-10

Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.
Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.
Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.
Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

During the study, the kids will learn a faith fact to help them remember each beatitude:

  • I will ask for help. (Matthew 5:3)
  • I will admit my sin and not do it again.  (Matthew 5:4)
  • I will be strong and easy to live with.  (Matthew 5:5)
  • I will always want more of God.  (Matthew 5:6)
  • I will see the need and make a difference.  (Matthew 5:7)
  • I will keep my heart clean.  (Matthew 5:8)
  • I will make peace wherever I go.  (Matthew 5:9)
  • I will do what's right even when it's hard.  (Matthew 5:10)

Each week, the kids will also be watching some videos where they will be following Cadets Riley and Ayliana as they start their training to be agents. These videos are also available online along with some other activities. These are accessible by password only.  Click here to go to Faith Case: The Beatitudes and select 'for kids' of the beatitudes and see below for the session passwords as they become available.

Items this week:   ANGEL, MAKE A POSE CELEBRATING JESUS' COMING BACK TO LIFE!

Sarah's Science Segment Instructions:

What you will need:
- 2 clear cups (one labeled “sin” and one labeled with a cross)
- Food colouring
- 1/3 Cup Bleach
- 2 tsp Baking soda
- 3/4 Cup Water
- Gloves
- Goggles
- Old shirt you are fine with if it gets bleach on it (just in case)
- Spoon/Stir stick
 
Safety:
We are working with BLEACH so BE CAREFUL
Do not drink, inhale…
Do not get on clothing
Wear gloves and goggles for extra protection
If you have long hair, you might want to put it up.
*Parents might want to do the work with the bleach if have younger kids.
Instructions:
  1. Place water into the glass labelled sin/representing sin
  2. Add baking soda to the glass and mix it together
  3. Add about 2-3 drops of food colouring
  4. Measure the bleach into the cup representing Jesus’ blood/labeled with a cross
  5. Pour the bleach into the “sin” cup and watch as the food colouring disappears and becomes clear again
  6. Add a couple of drops of food colouring, one at a time, and watch as the solution becomes clear again
* You might need to stir to get rid of the food colouring
Extra
- Try seeing how many drops of food colouring you can add to the solution before it does not go back to clear(ish). (This will be a lot just so you know).
- The baking soda added to the water speeds up the reaction and helps the water become clearer. If you want, try without the baking soda and see what happens. 
Have fun!!

        Weekly Picture Scavenger Hunt:

        At the end of the lesson, two scavenger hunt challenges will be given. When you find the item or do the action, take a picture of your child(ren) or your family with the item or doing the action. Have fun with it and get creative. Then email each picture to

        The following week, I will post those pictures on our website so you can share the experience with the other kids/families who participated.

        This week:

        1. Find a ROCK and take a picture (could be small like a pebble or big) 
            • Satan came to Jesus and tempted him to turn a rock into bread thereby proving that he is the Son of God. 

             2.  STAND ON TOP OF SOMETHING

            • The devil took Jesus to the holy city and had him stand on the highest point of the temple and then a bit later took him to the top of a very high mountain.

        CRAFT IDEAS (pick one or do them both):

        CRAFT ONE: Have kids paint the rock or rocks they found.

        CRAFT TWO:

        Supplies: 

            • liquid glue
            • cotton ball or something to spread the glue
            • crafting sand (you probably don’t have that on hand. You can use salt or something similar of whatever you have on hand - you could color the salt by mixing salt and food colouring in a plastic baggie, but then you will need to let it dry before using it)
            • Click HERE, Hit the download icon near the top right and then print out the page you want - regular or card stock is good.

        To Make:

            • Drizzle some glue on the picture where you want to have the sand (or salt, …). Let your child spread the glue out by using the cotton ball. 
            • Now pour 1/4 cup or so of sand over the glue. Then lift up paper over a bin to shake off the extra sand to save for another child.
            • Now you have a desert picture.

        GAME IDEA:

        Supplies:  6 containers, pen and paper, something to represent stones that you can throw inside the house safely.

        Purpose: When Satan was tempting Jesus to sin, he tempted him to change a stone into bread. Jesus knew that he didn’t have to prove himself to anyone, including Satan, and spoke from bible to say that man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from God. Today, we will play a game using stones (the item you chose to represent a stone) to remind us that even when we are tempted to sin, Jesus is always with us to help us to do the right thing.

        Preparation: 

        • On a slip of paper, write:  Deuteronomy 31:6   Be strong and brave. Don’t be afraid of them. Don’t be terrified because of them. The Lord your God will go with you. He will never leave you. He’ll never desert you.”
        • Cut the 6 sentences of the verse apart.
        • Put one sentence into each container.
        • Set the containers a small distance away.

        Play:  The child(ren) now take turns trying to throw the ‘stone’ into each container. When they are successful, they can take out the slip of paper. Once they have won all slips of paper they can put them in order and read it out with help if needed.
