Thanksgiving Sunday at The Junior Church

Thanksgiving Sunday at The Junior ChurchWhat an absolute delight to celebrate thanksgiving with about 40 children singing in a joyful voice "Shout to the Lord, all the earth let us sing, power and majesty, praise to the King!"

We began our thanksgiving children's service with worship, lifting up the name of Jesus and declaring His faithfulness, awesomeness and goodness in our lives.

The Sunday before last we heard about Edward a 9th standard student who has been diagnosed with leukemia and has been having a very difficult time with chemotherapy and all the treatments involved.  He has been in and out of hospital and so we had our children make him cards and write Scripture verses to encourage him and let him know that even though we did not know each other we can be caring and praying for one another. Thanksgiving Sunday at The Junior Church They did a brilliant job and the cards were sent to him that Sunday itself.  The children committed to praying for him through the week.  Edward was very encouraged by this gesture of love and was actually discharged the previous Wednesday and came to Sunday School and kicked off our sharing time with his testimony of God answering prayer and how he was discharged well before anyone expected.  

The kids were glued to their seats with eyes wide open, shock and joy on their faces, absolutely amazed that he was actually there. A fabulous sight to behold!  He also thanked the kids for the cards and prayers, which he kept right by his bedside and under his pillow and read often.  To their delight he also brought chocolates to share with them.  What an awesome way to begin our celebrations and how blessed and encouraged the children were to see the hand of God and the power of prayer.  What a mighty God we serve!

Thanksgiving Sunday at The Junior ChurchThe children then took turns to testify about God's working in their lives during the last year and it was a beautiful time of rejoicing with each other, for family, friends, health, healing, teachers, schools, studies and most of all the love and faithfulness of Jesus. The teachers then surrounded Edward while the kids took turns to come up and pray for him and he in turn prayed for the kids and those who had prayer requests.  It was truly a very special time and a neat way to remember that:

"We serve a risen Savior who’s in the world today,
We know that He is living no matter what men say.
We see His hand of mercy, we hear His voice of cheer.
And just the time we need Him, He's always near.  

He lives, He lives, Christ Jesus lives today!
He walks with us and talks with us along life's narrow way.
He lives, He lives,  Salvation to impart!
You ask me how I know He lives?
He lives within my heart!"

 

With a heart full of thanks,

Candy Phillips
