BSI ALLAHABAD AUXILIARY
BSI Allahabad Auxiliary conducted Bible Funshop for Kids. the Bible Funshop is Digital Scripture Engagement program for Kids. Kids learnt how to create Bible content (Vblogs) for Digital platforms.About 40 children from 5 churches attended the Bible Funshop organised by the BSI Allahabad Auxiliary.
We had a great time together reading and learning from the Bible. The theme of the Bible Funshop was THE BIG PICNIC (based on the story of Jesus feeding the 5000). The kids engaged in deep conversations about what we can give to Jesus and how we see what we have multiply and become a blessing to many, if only we can trust Jesus!
Kids imaginatively retold the story of the boy who gave his lunch – Five loaves and two fish to Jesus. “The Big Picnic” as one teacher who accompanied the Children said ” was a spiritual journey with fun, laughter and learning”!
Kids were also introduced to popular Digital Bible Tools such as Youversion Kids App, Bible Lens, Guardians of Ancora. We hope and pray that the Digital Natives would engage with God’s word in the Digital format!
