The Younger Children: using the same song to worship and dance, we will think about parts of our body that God gave us and what we can and should use them for. Then draw our own picture of ourselves and choose one part and focus on it. Eg: Draw round and colour our hands, and write eg: I clap for Jesus, I help people, I tidy up my toys after play, etc. Whatever they want to say. They can copy or trace what the adult helps them to write.
It is part of being His disciple by thinking of all He gave us and how to use them for His praise and glory.
