Children learn about the birth of Moses

Children learn about how Moses was born and then left to be found in a rather strange place!

The children at junior church started learning about Moses today. How he was "born" in a rather unusual place and grew up with two mothers. With a start like that he must have been someone special so we're going to follow his story over the next few weeks. We wondered how we would have kept Moses safe if we had had to hide him in the rushes by the edge of the river. A boat perhaps? Or a submarine or even a cruise ship so he had food and entertainment! The children had lots of ideas for keeping Moses safe. You can see some of them here and the full selection in the comments on the Explore Facebook page here:
