Anchor Boys March 2017
This month we have continued our topic of using popular children's stories and finding Christian messages within them. We had a Thomas the Tank evening when we talked about the famous little engine and his friends. We covered a lot of the floor of the Small Hall with train tracks and had lots of fun with several toy trains. It was a very popular evening with the boys, helpers and officers.
Using the points and signals correctly prevented accidents and kept the trains in good working order. It was a reminder to us that God has good plans for our lives if we follow His leading and guiding. We referred back to the Ten Commandments which we looked at earlier in the year.
The boys have now started some fund raising and are busy filling Smarties tubes with twenty pence pieces. We are continuing to support the S.L.A.T.E. charity and a school for blind and partially sight-ed boys in Russia.
We are looking forward to a visit from the charity's founder, Michael Kerins. Michael is an award winning story teller and has also written some children's books. Weetom is the hero of the stories and has some amazing adventures.
We recently entered a Partick District colouring competition. Congratulations go to Andrew McSheehy, Jamie Allan, DJ Tuach and Mat-thew Gillespie who were all awarded prizes for their artwork.
We shall be finishing our regular Friday night sessions before the Easter holidays start. We shall be holding our Parents' Evening/ Display on Friday March 17th at 6.30 pm. All members of the congregation are warmly invited to join us.
