P1100158The Youth Group gathered at the home of Kate Beck last night for their first meeting of 2014. There was much activity as we prepared a variety of items for the grand stir fry.

P1100115This was followed by much delight as chocolate was melt and poured over cakes. Then of course the bowl had to be cleaned!

P1100130When this had been achieved some further decoration took place.

P1100121Finally the stir fry was consumed and the Sarah in honour of whose birthday the cakes were made blew out the candles and everyone ate their fill.

P1100153On the spiritual side Colin shared lots of pictures of Jesus and then we talked about what we thought he might have been like and what came to mind when thought about him. It proved quite thought provoking.

Another wonderful evening with our young people last Sunday. We began by preparing a meal of turkey bolognaise and bakP1090825ed apples.

But the main activity was our attempts to turn gingerbread men into reindeer! First was made the gingerbread.

P1090831And then we cut out the men shaped biscuits

P1090835These were then put into the oven to cook. We then repaired to the dining room for our meal. After which the decorating took place.

P1090850Here is Megan with one that she made earlier.

P1090849During our time together we talked about transformation. We transformed the raw ingredients of the meal etc into something very special. We thought about how much we had changed over past few years. We also talked about the transformation that God wants to bring about in our lives.

Our prayer this week asks God to surround us as we journey through the days. In particular, that the Holy Spirit guide us in the choices that we must make.

Lord, this week please help me through
and I ask that you stand before me,
behind me and to each side of me.
Guide me in all my decisions
and aid me in making the right choices for myself as well as others for whom I am responsible.
May this week bring me closer to you
in every way! Amen.

May you know God’s presence as you pray this prayer.
