Elementary, October 31: The Tabernacle

Hi Journey Kids parents!

In the beginning God created everything. He created a space for us. In instructing Israel to construct the Tabernacle, He called them to create a space for Him. God has always wanted to dwell among His people. He did so in the Garden, then in the Tabernacle, then in the Temple, then in Jesus, and now in us. Isn’t that amazing? God wants to take up residence in your heart. He wants to be with you wherever you go.

When it’s time to begin, start your morning of family worship by watching the short lesson video with your kids. [You can access the videos here.] It’s a great way to engage spiritually with your family.

Here is a snapshot of the lesson details for this week:

Bible Story: The Tabernacle

Big Idea: God lives within us, so we can talk to Him anytime we want.

Memory Verse: “Don’t you know that you yourselves are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God lives in you?” 1 Corinthians 3:16 (NIrV)

After the video lesson and music, you can use the attached materials to help take your family deeper into the lesson:

If you follow Jesus, the Holy Spirit, the presence of God, lives inside of you. You have access to Him anytime and anywhere. He is closer than your next breath. I pray that you would experience His closeness this week.
