Lighthouse For All 27.03.2020

Hi Everyone, welcome to Lighthouse for All. Your Newhaven Church Sunday groups team have been upping our technology game (and our own confidence) to bring you something personal from us twice a week while we are not able to meet together.

Although, initially thought of as a way to engage or families, we hope that it is something everyone who wishes can access and join in.  These will be told on our new youtube channel. After the positive response to our first video, we have decided to post videos on both Wednesday and Friday, as well as EVERY DAY for Holy Week. We hope you enjoy.

Today’s story is told by me, Cassie, and is found in the Gospel of John 11:1-44. All of these texts can be read in many different translations on biblegateway.com. The International Children’s Bible is a simple adaptation of the NIV and what we have in Lighthouse. Today, I am telling the story using the narration and pictures from FreeBibleImages.com.

 

 

Pray, Inspire, Encourage

Did you know that part of my role as children’s and youth worker at Newhaven Church is to support our local churches in the Greater Leith Area in their commitment to working with children, youth, and families? With this hat on, may I invite you to our first Pray, Inspire, Encourage on Saturday 9th November from 12:30pm-2:30pm at North Fort Café. This month we will eat lunch together; pray together; look at what it means for our faith community to ‘grow young’; and think about how we make the most out the season of Advent.  All FREE! RSVP required by Wednesday 6th November to Cassie.Abousamak@gmail.comPIE_Main_

Sunday Connections_ 03.02.2018

The astute among you may have picked up that we missed out a week of Sunday Connections. My apologies for this as it was quite a full week. On Sunday, we looked at Esther in our all age service. We will have a short Sunday Connection this week below.

Two video retellings of the story of Esther can be found HERE and HERE

To Think Together: Esther was a women of courage, who had to trust in God to bring her through a scary situation. What does it look like to be a person of courage as a Christian in 2019 in Scotland? How about in Iran or North Korea?

Word Wall: Across the week, think of some positive attributes about your children and teens, add these to there door or other place they will see on post it notes. What were Esther’s positive attributes? Thank God for the way he has made each and every one of us.
