Because of the current and ongoing restrictions on social gathering associated with the Coronavirus pandemic, this resource is designed to be for use by families in the home, with the support of churches through resource provision and online engagement. It is flexible enough to serve churches who have previously provided successful holiday clubs but now are unable to gather in the same way as before, and churches who have never done them before but might have a connection with a small number of families in their community.
The Holiday Club is called the Hope Club because we want to offer our communities the opportunity to know our hope is in Jesus the light of the world.
Messengers from God told people that God’s rescue plan, Jesus was coming, over 700 years before he was born. One messenger, Isaiah, promised that he would be like a light greater than the sun and moon. This was the hope that God’s people held on to for generations. But, when Jesus arrived, many didn’t see the light – the power and love that he shared with those around him – and didn’t see that their hope had been fulfilled. Today, Jesus is still the light of the world and offers us hope in times of darkness. During this holiday club @ home we are going to explore what hope we can have in Jesus and the difference being his friend can make to our lives.
