Treasure Hunters Oct 2017

1. decorating the Church.jpg

Our Treasure Hunters event took place  Tues 31st Oct 6 - 7.30pm.



1.1 Mobee and the Treasure Chest.jpg

We had a fun time decorating the church beforehand, with footprints, which would lead to the different activities; draping leaves to create a jungle atmosphere and, of course, a treasure chest.

As leaders, we also had fun dressing up as adventurers.

The children had delicious refreshments, and then they each made their own Treasure Chest



18. Tim's talk.jpg


Tim then spoke about Treasure: Tim told us how he had put all his hopes in an electric guitar, and when it broke he felt he'd lost everything. When Tim came to faith in Jesus, he saw that Jesus was his real treasure, as Jesus is always there to help us. 



The 3 teams earned gold coins in each of the 3 activities, as well as bonus coins for enthusiastic or particularly good activities. The winning team each won a gift bag, with the tag 'Jesus is our treasure'.
