What our children have been learning

A few weeks ago in our series on the psalms we looked at what a truly blessed person looks like.

His delight is in the law of the LORD,
and on his law he meditates day and night.
He is like a tree planted by streams of water,
which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither.
Whatever he does prospers.
— Psalm 1:2-3

Before our service yesterday morning, some of the youngest members of our congregation showed how they have been following the call of Psalm 1 and meditating on God's law. In Sunday School this year, they have been considering the lessons God gives us in his word, as well as learning questions and answers from the Child's Catechism (which summarises some of the key truths of Scripture) and memorising the 23rd Psalm.

Before the service began, Jonny, one of our pastors, met with the girls during their Sunday School class to see how they have been progressing with their study of God's word. It was a delight to see how diligent they and their parents have been in memorising these precious truths. They were able to answer 15 questions from their catechism as well as singing the entire 23rd Psalm - all without making any mistakes!

After the Children's Address, the congregation sang this wonderful psalm and the children sang loudly, without the need for psalm books of course! Each one received a book from the church to show how thrilled we are that they are delighting in and meditating on the law of the LORD.
