What a couple of weeks we have had in Hero Factory both in Richmond and Barnard Castle. We have just finished a 6 week series in Richmond on ‘Movie Madness’ looking at the film UP and in Barney we have just finished looking and working through the story of ‘Joseph.’
It has been great to see the kids just take the next step every week in their relationship with God and one of my favorite things is to just see that spark ignite in a child when they get it. When they get that all though things were tough for Joseph, God never forgot him or when the realise that God has plans, HUGE, amazing, mind blowing plans for their life. I love Hero Factory so much.
This Sunday we start our new series for both locations of church, which is ‘The Fruit of the Spirit.’ Over 6 weeks we will be talking to your children about all the fruits of the spirit. Each week your child will learn more about how the seeds of these fruits are in us and we need to make them grow. Every Sunday your child will have fruit fun (literally it’s going to be fruit madness) they will hear preaches from some of our amazing team and then in their connect groups they will work through their connect group book which each week will focus on the fruit of the spirit we are talking about.
Also along side this series we have two challenges going on for your child and for you as a family which you can get involved in…
1. FS trading cards
Each week your child will be given a trading card of the fruit of the spirit we have been talking about that week. There will also be a phrase on it about that fruit so Love would say ‘Love is putting others first.’ If your child can remember this phrase the following week and tell their connect group leaders they will receive a tick on their connect group packs. If they remember all of them then they will win a PRIZE!
2. Family memory verse
Every series that we run in HF we have a family memory verse that runs a long side it. You have as a family as long as the series to learn that bible verse if at the end of the series you can come to me as a family and tell me the verse you will also receive a PRIZE and this term your memory verse is Galatians 5 vs 22.
We have so much going on in Hero Factory and it is so exciting. Remember every week to check in to this blog so you can find out what we have been learning in Hero Factory so you can chat to your children about it through the week.
Any questions just give me a shout.
