Hi. We hope you enjoy catching up!

Welcome and thank you for joining us. If this is your first time at The Oak, hello, we hope you enjoy our time together today.

Our plan today is to start by worshiping together with one of our worship leaders (song words will be on-screen). After that, there'll be a time of prayer and news, followed by a short talk.

There are materials on this page for our 0-3's (The Nest), Preschool to Year 6 (Treehouse) and Year 7+ (Oak Youth) to help the whole family grow together.

Happy Sunday, see you at 10.30am!

The NestGod’s Wonderful World Week 1
0-3's

This term in the Nest we are learning about the world around us to help us remember to be thankful for all the wonderful places God has created. This week we are looking at the Countryside!

Verse ‘I will give thanks to You, Lord, with all my heart; I will tell of all Your wonderful deeds.’ Psalm 9v1

Book Five Minute Bible Stories by Fiona Boon & Hayley Down (pages 71-91) (see link here). Tamsin, one of our fantastic Nest team, has recorded a video of this term’s book including a Makaton signed story and song (see link here).

Songs Who’s the king of the jungle - Creator God - If I were a butterfly - Praise the Lord - When I look (see the videos here) - Father God (to the tune of Old MacDonald, lyrics below, have a go at making up more verses with your child about other things you can find in the Countryside).

Father God made the world, E-I-E-I-O,

And in the Countryside He made a river, E-I-E-I-O

With a splish splash here, and a splish splash there etc.

Activity Using whatever resources you have available, create a ‘Countryside’ for your child to explore, some ideas are below. As you play remind your child that God made the Countryside and the animals that live in it - we can thank God for the wonderful Countryside.

  • Fill a baking tray with various cereals (weetabix hay bales, shredded wheat straw etc) to create some fields and add some toy farm animals
  • If you have a garden you could take some toy animals outside and play with them in the grass or mud or collect some grass, mud, plants etc into a baking tray and bring them inside to play with.
  • Create some fields and hills out of playdough
  • Build a farm out of duplo/lego

TreehouseThe Fruits of the Spirit - Kindness
Preschool - Year 6

Welcome back to Treehouse as we continue our series the Fruits of the Spirit. 

Today we will be learning about Kindness! 

It is easy to be kind to people we love, but I wonder how easy it is to be kind to all people?

Our memory verse for today is - Be kind to one another"
Ephesians 4:32

We will be thinking about a story where a man shows kindess to another - The Good Samaritan.

Watch the video to see what Katy has to say, and to hear from some of the kids in Treehouse! 

Worship: 

Fruit of the Spirit song - It wouldn't be the same without this catch song to get us moving. 

ElevateKIDS | "Give a Little Kindness" - Check out this song from ElevateKIDS all about God;s Kindness 

Good Good Father - Spend some time thinking about God and thanking him for being such a Good Good Father to us. 

Questions:

Why do you think the Samaritan helped the man who was hurt?

Why did the others not help him?

How did the other characters make you feel? 

What would you have done? Why? 

What is kindness?

How do you know if someone is being kind? 

How is God kind?

How do you show kindness?

Activities: 

  1. Can you make a kindness cloud, saying nice things about the people in your family to stick on underneath? Stick these up somewhere to remind each other about all the good things inside!
  2.  Use plasters to make these cards and pray for healing for people.  
  3. Make Chatterboxes with random acts of kindness, you can use the one in your pack or make your own.  
  4. Create Kindness stones to give to someone – to say something kind to them.
Why not share what you've been up to on the Treehouse Parents Facebook Group?
