1 Thessalonians 5:16-18. Rejoice at all times. Pray without ceasing. Give thanks in every circumstance, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. Today we talked about prayer. We learned that you can pray anywhere or a anytime and that you do not have to use big words or long sentences. Simply talk to God from your heart. Our experiment today was called the rainbow connection . We had a plate representing the world, Skittles candy represented Christians and warm water representing our prayers . When we poured our water (prayers) into our world full of Christians, soon we saw a beautiful rainbow of colors. Just like God turns our prayers into something beautiful and amazing. We learned some fun facts about Skittles – one which was that they were not invented until 1979. We finished our morning by sampling some of those delicious Skittles. A fun Sunday morning as always. God bless and have a great week everyone.
Today our lesson was from Psalms where God tells us to go and spread His word . We learned that Ivory soap was invented in 1879. In trying to come up with a name, the inventor read a passage in the Bible about ivory palaces so since his soap was pure he thought ivory would be a good name . We experimented with the Ivory soap and discovered that when heated in the microwave it’s spreads. Just like God wants us to spread His love . We also learned what hypothesis means . Great lesson by Miss Laura as always . Next week Miss Laura will be on a mission trip in Alaska . Have a great trip Miss Laura .Next weeks answer is “ Proverbs “

Today our lesson was called “Holy pokes”. Just like sunglasses that protect us from the sun, God is our protection from the pokes in life that can get us down. We had to have faith that the sharp pencils we poked into a bag of water wouldn’t let the water out. And it worked. Just like we have to have faith that God will protect us and help us through the things in life that poke and stab us. Then we made cards for our friends in our local nursing homes. Have a great week everyone
Psalm 51:7 Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; wash me and I shall be whiter than snow. Today we talked about snow and how snow comes about. Miss Laura had a great snowman kit but without the snow to put the pieces on, it was incomplete. Just like our lives are incomplete without Jesus. We all need to add Jesus to our lives. He can make us complete and whiter than snow. Then we got to make snowmen to take home. It was so great to have everyone back in the church again. We are continuing to learn the books of the bible, so next week’s answer is Nehemiah. Have a great week everyone and please stay healthy
