How do I explain what ‘Shine’ is?
Well, actually, ‘Shine’ isn’t just the name of our Holiday Bible Club, but it encapsulates what we want children and families to see and experience as they walk through the door. As the children and young people enjoy games, quizzes, warm-ups, crafts, songs and a lot of laughter, we want to demonstrate to those we come in contact with that the life of a Christian isn’t dull and subdued, but is fun, full of joy and filled with wonderful experiences that you wouldn’t get anywhere else.
However, the most important thing we do is meet with God. Through age appropriate worship and Bible exploration, we want to help the children and young people understand more about who God is, His love for them, and how they can have a meaningful and lasting relationship with him. As a wonderful children’s worship song puts it, we want to ‘shine, from the inside out, so the world can see, you (Jesus) live in me.’
