Moneydig Presbyterian children’s day took place on Sunday 10th June 2018.
In Moneydig we are incredibly proud of and thankful for our children. At this year’s annual Sunday School service our children taught us about Blind Bartimaeus and the Prodigal Son, both stories told in their own inimitable style.
The theme of the service was being able to see. Jesus enabled blind Bartimaeus to see and the prodigal son had to leave home and lose everything before he could see the goodness of the father. The children helped us to apply this theme of being able to see to today’s world. The Sunday school have placed a box in the vestibule to collect old glasses. Instead of these glasses simply gathering dust in drawers and cupboards at home they will now be sent to Kenya where good quality glasses are hard to come by. All glasses will be distributed by local charity VisPa. Find out more about VisPa here. In Moneydig the Sunday school is truly helping others to see, both in terms of seeing the world more clearly and seeing the love of Jesus through their compassion and kindness.
The service was a truly family affair as Richard McFetridge and Alan McAleese, dads to Katie and Sophie, were called upon to help illustrate the importance of being able to see as they tried to identify various objects while blindfolded.
Children’s day would not be complete without the Sunday School choir. This year the children excelled themselves as they sang a variety of pieces. The choir took this opportunity to teach the congregation one of their favourite songs, My Lighthouse, by the Rend Collective.
It was a pleasure to present prizes to every child and young person in the Sunday School and Bible class, all of which were richly deserved.
While Sunday school has now finished for the summer, it does not mean we have stopped meeting together. Saturday the 23rd June is the annual Sunday School outing. This year we go to Watertop farm in Ballycastle. The weather forecast looks more than hopeful.
If you don’t belong to a Sunday School we would be delighted to offer a warm welcome and the opportunity to be part of what happens week by week in Moneydig, as well as the chance to let your gifts shine through the various children and family services throughout the year. For more information about Sunday School please speak to our superintendent Jacqui Henderson.
