We can show our love for Jesus in many ways.

SUNDAY IS COMING
We are running our regular plan this weekend.
Sign in for kids happens between 9:45 and 10:15 - the earlier the better though as the kids have activities set up to start at 9:45am.
If you get there after 10:15 you’ll find us all together in our worship space, sign your kids in and come and join us.

TO READ TOGETHER
John 12:1-8
This story appears in all the four gospels and although the details are different there is a common theme to them all in the extravagance of the anointing and the love that Mary pours out on Jesus.

TO LEARN TOGETHER
The house was filled with the sweet scent of the perfume. John 12:3b

SO I’M WONDERING
(Some things to think about together)
What is the most extravagant gift you have given to someone?
What is your favourite smell?

TO DO TOGETHER
Love somebody close to your family in a tangible way — make a meal, babysit, send some flowers, or do a secret kindness.

KEEP YOUR EYES OPEN
Whenever you see or smell some scented lotion or perfume remember this story of Mary rubbing Jesus’s feet with perfume.

TO PRAY TOGETHER
Say this prayer barefooted.
Thank you God that you love us. Thank you Jesus for your extravagant love for the world. Help us to show our love for you in lots of big and small ways. Amen


This week pray for all kids and teachers, whether they are at school or learning at home. Pray that everyone would learn something amazing this week.



GENEROUS GIVING
We can show our love for God by loving people or animals or places that He has made. Where do you like to show your love? How do you demonstrate that you love creation, be that places, plants, creatures or people?
