Each session of Shakers includes:
Switch on – Welcome to everyone, especially new children.
Into the Bible – The main Bible story is taught.
Living the life – The Bible story is related to the children’s everyday lives. This sometimes includes a craft activity or game. We use many different ways of helping the children remember the biblical truths being taught.
Prayer time – Each week the children pray for a church leader, a missionary and a child from the group. Prayers are offered for these people and any other needs the children may bring for prayer.
Your story – This is an opportunity for the children to share any answers to prayer they have had during the week.
Memory verse – Each child will take home a card with the memory verse for the month, related to the story taught in Shakers that day. The children will be able to learn the verse during the month. It is our hope that scripture learnt at an early age will remain with the children into their adult life.
