This is a story of inclusivity. It’s a story about people who had always been treated as less getting to be a full part of God’s work. It’s a story that repeats itself in almost every generation and our modern day Cornelius and Peter may not be the people we expect.
Keep it up – How long can a child keep a balloon in the air? Let them play solo, then in pairs, then 4’s until there is only one group.

Echoes – A simple mimic game where the first person taps out a small beat and passes it around the group, once it reaches the last person they change the beat. Add in sound effects as your group gets more confident.
