Saltshakers is for children aged 3-11yrs and we meet at PMC on Sunday mornings during the 10.45 service.
Our aim is to introduce children to Jesus and to help them grow as disciples - just the same aim that we, as a church, have for the bigger people! The team members believe that anyone can have a personal relationship with God through Jesus and that our role in the church is to nurture the little ones.
Each week we all meet together for games, singing and an introduction to the theme or story before moving into three different groups for age appropriate teaching and activities. During this part of the morning we learn about Jesus, the Bible, make something crafty (the messier the better!) and pray together. The children also have the opportunity to reflect on what they have heard and experienced and to share their thoughts and beliefs with each other.
Through their experiences in Saltshakers, we hope that each child will encounter God in some personal way and learn to love him and encounter him in their daily lives. We hope to share with them the excitement that we experience as Christians!
