15th - 19th August 2005

 

The holiday club was based on holiday club resource material produced by Children's ministry. The aim was to look at the events around the flood. What Noah would have faced, the skills needed to fullfil his task, and different aspects of Noah's personality.

It should be noted that we have always had a policy of accepting any child within the age limits provided we do not go over our maximum numbers. As in the previous two years we had several children from families of other faiths, a deliberate effort was make on the publicity of this years Holiday Club to emphasise that the Christian viewpoint would be used.

 

Background Information

 

Noah was different to what everybody else considered normal, how he felt about this generates the same emotions and feelings as many children experience today.
  • What was it that set him apart from others?
  • What sets us apart from others today, how we can say yes to God today just as Noah did?
  • Can Noah teach us how to accept God's word as true?
  • How can we keep trusting even though we may be ridiculed by some of our peers, and can we believe God's promises?
Heavy stuff!

But with fun activities all of this will be covered which will hopefully & prayerfully give each child something to hold onto for help and encouragement as they progress through life.
