The Vine and the Branches Family Prayer

On Sunday we have an all age service based on John 15: 1-11 (Jesus speaking about the vine and the branches).  Our focus will be on how we can grow as disciples and bear fruit for God.  As a take away I've put together some little bags containing cotton wool, cress seeds (something fast and easy to grow!) and a little sheet with instructions and a prayer idea on it.  There should be enough for each family to take one away to grow at home!

Here is the text on the sheet:

Help us to grow!
This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.  John 15:8

Wet the cotton wool and put it on a saucer.  Sprinkle the seeds on top. 
Ask God to show you how you can grow as a disciple and bear fruit for Him.
Keep the cress in a sunny place and don’t forget to water the cotton wool! 
As it grows think about how you are showing the world that you are a disciple.
