Pray With Me

We had a great time in Sunday school today as we went into the garden to pray like Jesus and a few of his disciples did. We created a small garden scene for us to pretend we were there.
While we were in the garden, we talked about how Jesus went to the garden to pray. We discussed how Peter and the others fell asleep. They were awaken by soliders coming in to take Jesus away. Zachary, D. J., Wyatt, and Haven were such great listeners. They answered all of the questions I quizzed them on after reading our Bible story. The boys even wanted to make masks to imitate the soliders.

We also made prayer flowers. They wrote down names of people they wanted to pray for. Everytime they look at their prayer flowers, they are to be reminded to pray for those people.

Mr. Bob Jernigan has completed his courses to become a local lay speaker. We are so proud of Bob and his family. They are a wonderful addition to our congregation.

Here are Zachary, Wyatt, and D. J. waiting the prelude to join Bro. Danny at the front of the church with today's offering. They are such young little men.
