The CMSI offices have been inundated with bright and colourful competition entries for the 2017 Children’s Resource – Growing in God. It has been so encouraging to see the effort and creativity over 200 children have put into their entries.

All the entries have received a certificate for entering the competition and we have awarded multiple prizes for the age groups as there was such a high standard.

A special mention goes to The Senior Class from Kildollagh Parish Sunday Club who completed a Prayer Tree Interactive display in their parish. Parishioners and sunday school members added prayers to the tree every week. They sent us a photo collage of the Prayer Tree.

A big thank you to all the gifted and talented Sunday School teachers who have helped this resource to come alive for their children and young people. We hope you have all enjoyed learning about God and the Church in Kenya.

You can still order Growing in God resource materials or give feedback on this year’s resource. Any entries sent to our offices will still receive a certificate.
