Picnic Party

Our church assembly held a Sunday School picnic last weekend, and we had a wonderful time seeing the kids enjoy themselves with great food, an amazing message, and fun games and crafts.  It was a gorgeously warm, sunny day, and the new spot we used was beautiful.  It couldn’t have gone better!

My kids were very excited that their dad told them that the “picnic rules” included unlimited sodas and junk food – and they lived it up!!  It was so cute!


For those of us with a bit more refined palate, we were treated to this stunning homemade red velvet cake by my friend Barbara.  Isn’t it gorgeous?!IMG_9503

We did some fun games, including a pop-the-balloon game:IMG_9511 IMG_9510

A make-your-own snowglobe craft:


A few rousing games of tug-of-war (SO fun to watch!):IMG_9516 IMG_9518 IMG_9517 IMG_9521

And a pass-the-ball-of-candy game:IMG_9522 IMG_9523 IMG_9525

We were so thankful that in between all the sugar and games, the kids were treated to a clear Gospel message that reminded them that because of the Bible’s veracity, we can know with 100% certainty that the Lord Jesus died for our sins and we can rest in His work on the cross to take us to Heaven – we don’t need to be fooled by our changing emotions or fallible senses; we can trust in the unchanging promises of God.  Hallelujah, what a Savior!
