The Scripture Union and CSSM organised a half-day retreat for children in the church on November 7, 2018. Around 120 children participated in the retreat which was of a completely different flavour. Not only were the children kept engrossed by the songs, quizzes and games, but they were taught the scripture in a way they would remember. The resource person was Pastor Zicu Jacob who was assisted by Brother Davis and two others. After the programme was completed with lunch, the children were inquiring whether it would continue post-lunch or not. Volunteers of the Youth Fellowship helped in conducting the programme. We believe the Lord has spoken to the children through this programme.
