The King Of Hearts
w/c 26 November 2018
This week we are celebrating the feast of Christ the King. Through a storybook film about good and bad kings and the effects they have on their subjects, children will be encouraged to think about their hearts as a kingdom. Who or what is king of their hearts?
Jesus will be presented as the best king, and children will be given the opportunity to invite Jesus to be king of their hearts. For it is only when Jesus is king of our hearts that we can truly experience the joy, peace, mercy and love that He brings.
‘Pilate said, “So you are a king!”
Jesus answered, “You say that I am a king. I was born for this: to tell people about the truth...And everyone who belongs to the truth listens to me.”’ John 18: 33-37

Children will learn that their hearts can be ruled by different influences, but that Jesus invites us to make Him the King of our hearts.
