The Good News Club, Christmas and Easter Clubs are events when Dervock Presbyterian Church are able to reach out into the community, have fun & share the story of Jesus with the children of this area. We pray with the Psalmist that the Lord may raise up a generation in Dervock whose hope is in Him (Psalm 78).
Tuesday afternoons in the Spring term are full of songs, Bible lessons, memory verses, quizzes, games and crafts as we go into the local Primary School for Good News Club. We meet with P 6 & 7 at lunchtime from 1-1.30pm and how the time seems to pass so quickly. We then meet with P 2 & 3 from 2-3pm. It is always a joy to be able to go in to tell the boys and girls the good news of Jesus Christ and we thank the Principal and staff in the school for their willingness to have us. During this term we are learning about King David. How we praise God that we can point the children to the Greater David, the Lord Jesus Christ.
We claim God’s promise that His Word won’t return unto Him void (Isaiah 55 v 11). Please pray with us that the Lord will work in the lives of these precious boys and girls. We pray that those who as yet do not know Christ as Saviour will come to Him in repentance and faith trusting in all that He has done for them on the cross. As they learn Psalm 23, how lovely it would be if many are able to truly say, “The Lord is my Shepherd.” We also pray that Christian children in the Club will be edified in their faith as they learn more from God’s Word each week. The children really enjoy the choruses and we pray that through the singing, precious truths may be hid in their hearts. We also hope that the little crafts at the end of Club are a reminder to the children of what they have learnt.
We also have the joy of welcoming many of these children to our Church Halls for special Christmas and Easter Clubs. The bus ride from the village is a big highlight as so are the delicious snacks prepared by willing helpers! In these special seasonal Clubs we have a similar program as in the weekly Good News Club followed by longer sessions for games and crafts. The children really enjoy this time and we enjoy being able to get to know them better in this way. For any more information, see Lynda McAuley.
