Confirmation Bags for Life
Make a Bag for Life for each confirmation candidate. The things in this bag are based on suitable Bible quotes (see Gallery photos).
Each bag will contain:
A bottle of water
A small box containing wheat seeds (boxes available from www.bakerross.co.uk)
A small wooden cross
A candle with the name of the candidate on it
Each item will have a small label stuck on it with a Bible quote (see Confirmation Bag for Life labels in How to Make).
A Candle – Jesus said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will have the light of life and will never walk in darkness.”
A Cross – Jesus said, “If anyone would follow me let them deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me.”
A Bottle of Water – Jesus said, “…but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give
them will never thirst; the water that I shall give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”
Wheat Seeds – Jesus said, “The seed cast on good earth is the person who hears and takes in the News, and then produces a harvest beyond their wildest dreams.”
A Feather – Psalm 36 says, “How precious, O God, is your constant love! We find protection under the shadow of your wings.”
The items will need to be put in a paper carrier bag (paper carrier bags are available on the web). Each bag should have a label stuck on it saying A BAG FOR LIFE.
Each bag should have a label tied to it with the candidate’s name.
