The past two weeks in Playhouse, we have been learning about Nehemiah and how he rebuilt the walls of Jerusalem. For those of you that do not know about Playhouse, it is COTHA’s Sunday morning worship service for kids. The Playhouse Crew, which is made up of kids from our Student Ministry, presents a skit that goes along with the Bible story. The skits give kids practical ways to solve their problems with a biblical foundation.
After being away for Christmas break, the Playhouse Crew comes back to find their playhouse in shambles. It is hard on everyone because this is a place where they hang out and share many fond memories. They learned that Nehemiah is the account of the rebuilding of the walls of Jerusalem. And Jerusalem is a symbol of the city of God, God's dwelling place and the center of life for the world. Although they were not rebuilding the walls of Jerusalem it gave them the picture of the way the walls of any life, of any local church, of any community, of any nation, of any playhouse could be rebuilt into strength and power and purpose again with the help of God. After hearing about Nehemiah, they were able to come together and come up with ideas about how to rebuild their playhouse.
For the next couple of weeks the playhouse crew will continue to rebuild their playhouse. Although they will face many obstacles, they will learn to trust God. For it is through him that all things are possible.
Join us for Playhouse every Sunday morning during the 10:30am service. Open to kids ages Kindergarten- 4th Grade.
