As some of the Year 6s have returned to school, we have started a new series for Collective Worship called ‘Giants of Faith’. We thought it would be lovely to share the Collective Worship sessions here so that we can all feel connected while we are still apart from each other. The resources will be uploaded each day and will be available until the following week. We hope you enjoy feeling that you are joining in with our school community in this way.
This week we are looking at how we can trust God and have courage, even in difficult circumstances. Mark, from City Evangelical Church, starts our week with some pretty amazing Lego to introduce the story…ML
In the Old Testament there is a story about the city of Jericho. Jericho was a powerful and strong city with huge strong walls surrounding it on all sides. God had promised the Israelites that he would deliver the city into their hands.
Joshua, the head of the Israelites, sent spies to Jericho to scout out the city. When they were in the city, the ruler caught wind of them and set the guards to searching the whole city. It would have been bad news for the spies if a woman called Rahab hadn’t helped them out by hiding them on her roof. Rahab didn’t exactly have the classiest job and would have been looked down on by lots of people in the city. It would have been a huge risk for Rahab to help the spies.
Let’s hear from her now…
What’s the biggest thing you have ever had to trust someone with?
Enjoy this song about the different Giants of Faith we’re learning about.
Stand up – raise your hands in time to the music
Believe in – hands on hearts
Be brave – strong arms
Push you down – hands towards the floor
Strong and stand your ground – moving hands from side to side showing the ground
You are not alone – hold both hands together
Have a dance to this great song!
