In March MaTT Club focused on Fruit of
the Spirit- Goodness and Faithfulness. We challenged Early Service and Late Service to a food drive contest to
see who could bring in the most items for the food bank in the month
of March. The challenge is still going on at the time of the printing of
the newsletter so stay tuned for the results.
I chose a pineapple to represent Goodness because, on the outside the
pineapple is rough and prickly but the inside is filled with sweet
goodness. We discussed how sometimes people are like pineapples.
They are prickly on the outside but once we get past that we find that
they can be very “sweet” on the inside. We cut open a fresh pineapple
and the kids each got to have a taste. The children built a tower of
canned goods and we talked about ways we can “do” goodness for
others. We decided to collect food through the food drive challenge.
On March 17 we focused on Fruit of the Spirit-Faithfulness. I chose
the cherry to represent Fruit of the Spirit-Faithfulness because often
(in pictures at least) cherries grow in pairs- we see two attached to the
same stem. We played some games about being faithful and trustworthy. Pairs of kids tied together to traverse the obstacle course was definitely a lesson on co-operation and being mindful of your partner.
We discussed how God is always faithful to us and how we can be
faithful to our family, our friends, and God. We made cherry zipper
pulls for craft.
