TLC

 

 

WHAT is TLC? 

Here at Formby Methodist Church it means Toddlers LIttle Church. 

 

WHEN is it? 

We meet the first Thursday of school holidays. 

 

WHY

Well it’s so that older brothers and sisters can join their younger brothers and sisters who come to Toddlers each Thursday.

 

HOW is it different? 

It’s like Toddlers but in a different order.

So we start off with craft and toys in church, followed by a VERY lively and often interactive short story and then all our favourite songs including Hokey Cokey. After that we move to the hall for refreshments and the ‘big’ toys including things like Connect Four and table football for the older ones.

 

WHY do we start off in church?

Well to show that it’s quite a fun place to be.

Nothing scary and you don’t need to be quiet!

 

Why not join us?

We’d love to see you?

Meets from 10.15 am in the Maple Leaf Room with introductory activity.   At 10.30 am we go into Church to join in the first 15 minutes of worship.

Back in the Maple Leaf Room we aim to ‘adventure’ with the children through interactive Bible stories to learn more about God’s love and the teaching of Jesus so that they get to know him as their friend for life.

 

Together we have

Welcome time with games, songs, or hunts for clues

Story time with acting and listening

Craft time to help us remember the message of the day

Snack time with juice and biscuits

News time with shared news to show or tell

Prayer time to say Thank you to God

Explorers

Are you in Year 6 or above?

Enjoy hot chocolate?

Like challenges and chatting?

If you’re free on a Sunday morning you would be very welcome to come and join us. 

We meet just before the Church service at 10.30 am and then go into the Service together for the first 15 minutes or so.  After that it’s off to the Circle Room to make the hot chocolates.

Do you enjoy winning games?  We played one the other week, the highest score won.  If that was you would you try really hard to do well?  There was a twist…….your score was the score that would be given to the person standing next to you ……..does that mean you would really try your hardest to do well?  Should we always try our hardest even if we are not the ones to benefit from it?
