Zoom into Messy Church

Hi Messy Church Families, 

Did you know that ALL people are equal in God’s eyes?

Join us on Friday, February 9th from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. for a special Valentine-inspired “God’s Love is For All” Zooming into Messy Church!

Together, we’ll embark on a journey of understanding that everyone is beautiful and precious to God, and that we’re all part of God’s family. There is so much injustice in the world and it’s easy to feel hopeless against it. We’ll discover that sometimes it only take a stranger in a dark place, to hold out a scarf or offer a kind word, to help warm hearts and make a difference in the world.

Here’s what you can expect from our “God’s Love is For All” Zooming into Messy Church:

  • Event Details: Friday, February 9th from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. on Zoom. (Zoom doors open at 5:50 for a Meet and Greet.)
  • “What You Need to be Warm” by Neil Gaiman: Maybe it’s snuggling under warm blankets, or sitting beside the orange flames of a fireplace, or sipping hot chocolate that warms you from the inside out. Neil Gaiman says that sometimes its as simple as saying a kind word, or helping newcomers feel welcome in a new country, to remind us that we ALL have the right to be here.
  • Skittles Minute-to-Win it Game: It’s ok to ask for help when you don’t know what to do or say when you see injustice or racism. We’ll give some Skittles some help in coming together…with a straw! How many can you transfer in a minute? Join us to find out! 
  • Skittles Science: It’s important to give thanks for the diversity of God’s creation. In this colorful Skittles experiment, we’ll discover that we need to celebrate diversity! 
  • Peace Valentine Card: God wants us to act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly. The only way to do that is with love and peace. We’ll make heartfelt Peace Valentine Cards for loved ones!
  • Heart Suncatcher Craft: Jesus reminds us to ‘love each other as I have loved you.’ We’ll make colorful Heart Suncatcher Crafts to celebrate God’s love for us all!
  • Chocolate Kissed Pretzel Snack: What do you get when you mix Hershey kisses, pretzels and heart candies? An incredible scrumptious Valentine snack!
  • Animal Valentine-themed Kahoot: Test your trivia skills with an animal Valentine-themed Kahoot!
  • Messy Church Gives Back to Keep Others Warm – from the inside out: To show our love for others, we’re asking everyone to add a few nonperishable food items to your Messy Church kit before you return it to the church.

Make sure to register by Monday, February 5th, and we’ll deliver a Messy Church kit right to your doorstep!
