Last week at TOAST! we took the Euro 2012 tournament as our starting point. A week after the end of the tournament but football is always too good a focus to miss.
We made team numbers for our backs to show we are in the team; we filled in team sheets to show who is in our ‘team’; we created prayer cones to show the things we find difficult and prayer nets to show the things we are thankful for; we created a huge ‘team photo’ by drawing round ourselves. And of course we played football.
Then we found out who Jesus’ first team was by creating team shirts for each of the first disciples and discovered that we are all still in Jesus team
And to finish we sang words about being in God’s team to the Match of the Day theme tune!!
Great time had by all and judging by my 2 boys responses they ‘got’ the being in Jesus’ team message.
