Little Blessings Online, Series 3, Episode 3, It’s Raining Cats and Frogs

In Season 3, Episode 3, of Little Blessings Online, Jo and Andy and their team follow Moses again, last week it was a Burning Bush in Moses’ life, this week we look at something called plagues which are disasters that came about when Moses was alive – interesting guy, interesting life! There were 10 disasters all together, but we thought we would focus on the humble frog – Gribbit!

Art Time
We thought we would use the humble paper plate again to make a humble green frog! It’s a wide mouth frog with a long curly tongue – what fun!

Paper Plate Frog

  • paper plate
  • green crayon, paper, paint, or pen
  • red paper
  • green paper
  • white paper/ card
  • black pen
    Optional
  • stick on eyes

Story Time
Andy B tells the story of another miraculous happening – the invasion of the frogs. Unlike our neighbouring pond, there were not 10, not 20, not 30, but 1000s of frogs all over the place, even in cereal boxes if they had them!

It’s not raining cats and dogs, it’s raining frogs!

Something 4 Sunday LITE, Series 3, Episode 3, Prayers For Others

Abigail is an amazing example of a godly women, she exudes truth, integrity, honesty, humility, and respect.

In Andy B’s Preachy Teach LITE, Andy looks at how we need to be more like Abigail when seeking to influence others. Andy leads us on from last week when we thought about changing our own minds. This week we look at changing other people’s minds and praying for others.

Pray on!

In #GoDo, Steven & Nathan give us 3 challenges for the week ahead to GoDO, encouraging us to go deeper in our relationship with God:

  1. Read 1 Samuel 25 – David, Nabal & Abigail
  2. Remember – you can’t force someone’s mind to change – that’s up to them. We need to show love and present truth to those around us – the Holy Spirit does the rest.
  3. Think of someone with whom you disagree and pray for them; going to God first to make sure you are not being judgmental.

Little Blessings Online, Series 3, Episode 2, Moses and The Burning Bush

In Season 3, Episode 2, of Little Blessings Online, Jo and Andy and their team do a double take – a burning bush that doesn’t burn – what! Another amazing episode!

Art Time
We have found a way to create our own Burning Bush – well we have paper flames and a light that makes it look like it! Join Jo in drawing a simple bush – a brown truck and a big green- well bushy bush!

Burning Bush

  • glass, plastic or paper cup or a toilet roll
  • paper tissue or paper – red, yellow and orange
  • glue
  • coloured pens
  • scissors
    Optional
  • small light, tea light or small torch – battery operated

Story Time
Andy B tells us about another miracle, this time a guy called Moses saw this bush when he was out with his sheep. What was interesting was that the bush didn’t burn up – it was in perfect shape, even though it was on fire. It’s alright Moses didn’t burn himself – he was a sensible shepherd, not a silly shepherd!

Something 4 Sunday LITE, Series 3, Episode 2, Answered Prayer – Changing Our Mind

Andy B’s Preachy Teach LITE follows on nicely from last week when Andy talked about God seemingly changing his mind. This week Andy B looks at us changing our mind. We all know the difference between right and wrong and when we know and walk with Jesus we are transformed.

Be transformed!

In #GoDo, Steven & Nathan set us 3 challenges for the week ahead to GoDo, encouraging us to go deeper in our relationship with God:

  1. Read Acts 9: 1-19 Saul’s conversion
  2. Ask God if there is anything, He wants you to change in your life!
  3. Allow God to change your mind because:

Those who don’t change their mind don’t change anything!

Something 4 Sunday LITE, Series 3, Episode 1, Unanswered Prayer

Steven puts today’s S4S LITE in context – a golden bull, Moses, some tablets and changing God’s mind.

Andy B explores Exodus 32 v 7-14 and digs into what God changing His mind is all about.

In #GoDo, Steven & Nathan give us 3 challenges for the week ahead and share a couple of personal experiences to help us all to GoDo and get deeper in our relationship with God:

  1. Steven encourages us read the whole of Exodus 32 for ourselves.
  2. Nathan suggests praying for a person or situation, for a week – or until the prayer is answered.
  3. Steven reminds us that God always hears our prayer, whether it seems like it or not.

Daily Family Prayers Returns

We’re back, after a really restful Christmas break, with Daily Family Prayers, Live @ 1pm, on our Facebook page – starting Monday 11th January 2021.

It’ll be the usual format, where we pause our day – for about 15 minutes – for things around the world to pray into situations around the world. We always finish with a time to say thankyou to God for all the good things in the world and in our lives too.

If you see or know of an issue you think we need to pray for then you can add it to our collective praying, and message us through Facebook, Instagram, DingDash or via our BerryBunch.family website

Christingle, 2020, with the BerryBunch

In this super special broadcast, Andy B and Jo Jo take us through the Christingle. They look at the history of the Christingle, and the humble orange that makes up the most important part.

Jo Jo brings history alive as she takes us through what each of the elements of a Christingle mean.

Andy B teams up with Jo Jo to show us how to actually make a Christingle, using objects and items that should be fairly easy to find in your home!

For every Christingle Orange that you wish to make you will need:

  • a large orange
  • red electrical tape or similar (we’ll be using a red ribbon we saved from a birthday cake)
  • 4 cocktail sticks (plus a few spare in case you break one or two)
  • dolly mixture (or soft fruit, or anything soft enough to push a cocktail stick through!)
  • a small/thin candle (we’ll be using a birthday candle because it comes with it’s own mount and spike)

We also share a video made by the Bible Society, and used with permission, which takes a rather apt, 2020, Covid-19 style approach to the 12 days of Christmas.

There are two great Videos you can also watch which we think are fabulous and can highly recommend:

Bible Society – The Greatest Journey

Skit Guys – Sticky Jesus

Christingle, 2020 Materials you will need if you want to join in

If you want to join in with our LIVE BROADCAST Christingle, this Sunday afternoon at 4pm (GMT), you won’t need many things.

A single, Christingle Orange

It was only a couple of years ago we led a team that made over 600 Christingle Oranges. The room had a divine smell and it was great fun.

This one will be a little easier I think, although LIVE BROADCASTS have their own, special, challenges!
