RUTLAND ADVENTIST CHURCH
Children's Story Update
Here I am looking rather pilgrimish or perhaps mother goose-ish? I did the children's story last Sabbath, Nov 2nd at Rutland church. The Great Controversy book and the Internet were my sources of information about how our forefathers came from England on the Mayflower ship and all the hardships they endured getting to North America. They left because they were escaping persecution by the Church of England and wanted to live in a land where they were free to read their Bibles and for religious freedom to worship as they wanted.
I used a tiny replica Mayflower ship and some paper dolls of pilgrims and wild animals for props, along with plastic horses, a dog and sheep. It was fun playing dress up with toys to boot to tell the story.
The hat was like a bonnet, rounded at the back, and the best I could do, without a real bonafide bonnet. The dress came from a thrift store and I glued some felt with lace on it for a make shift collar. The apron was borrowed from the Kelowna Church and I even had boots with buckles to complete the ensemble. Boy that dress was hot though, being made of wool. Yikes, I felt like I was melting.
