WATOTO CHILDREN’S NEIGHBOURHOOD CELL GUIDE FOR WEEK ENDING 21 September 2019
Icebreaker: Be Creative- come up with a game of your choice.
Good reports: Ask the children to exercise “Each one Reach one” by welcoming each other with a hand shake or a hug, make it interesting. Always encourage the children to give testimonies if any and share yours as well.
Praise & worship: Prepare songs of your choice and pick a few of the children to lead others in praise and worship.
THEME: HE STILL LOVES US
TEXT: Psalm 23:1-2, Psalm 118:1, John 16:23-24
OBJECTIVE: By the end of cell, children will learn talk to God in prayer. Thanking Him for the holidays and the term that has began and dedicating the term into the hands of the Lord.
MEMORY VERSE: Matthew 7:7 Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.
Introduction: Good to see you all once again. How were the holidays. Today we want to spend some time praying to God thanking Him for taking us back to school and committing the 3rd school term into his hands.
1. Ask one of the children to read Psalm 118:1. Then ask the children to kneel down. Begin by thanking God for all the wonderful things He has done through out the holiday, thank God for the new school term. Thank God for his provisions that we are all back in school. Then ask the children to repent of their sins. Let them also pray for themselves that God will help them be better children in this term. (Take about 3 mins max)
2. Then ask the children to stand up. Let them join hands with two other children and let them pray that the new term goes on well. Let the first child pray for wisdom and excellence in their studies, the second child prays for provisions including parents, guardians and siblings. The third child should pray for good health through out the whole term. (prompt the children to pray by saying let us first pray now, etc. take about 3 mins max)
3. Lead the children in an appropriate song at this point. Read out loud Psalm 23:1-2. Ask the children to hold their hands across the room. Let them cry out to God on behalf of the other children in the world, and their country. Let them pray for their schools, teachers and non teaching staff.
Share the Vision: Encourage the children to come with one more person or two every time they come for cell.
Remember! IT ONLY TAKES THE HEART NOT MUCH; THANK YOU FOR SERVING.
FAITH OVER FEAR
