Story Focus: We wrap up the month looking at passages in Exodus 25, 28, 31, 35, and 39. We see what happened as the Israelites built a place where they could gather and worship God. Moses instructed God’s people to build a beautiful tabernacle as a place for God to dwell among them. God gifted all sorts of artists, wood and metal workers, and seamsters to use their creative gifts to worship God.
Bottom Line: Use your imagination to honor God. God gave us amazing minds that have the potential to do all sorts of creative things—including how we worship God. We hope that kids discover that honoring God is so much more than singing worship songs. We can honor God when we do our best, keep growing in our creative abilities, and use our talents and abilities to love others the way God loves them.
Key Question: What are creative ways to honor God? Throughout the month, we’ll help kids discover all sorts of ways they can use their creativity. But we also want them to start to understand how they can use their creativity to worship God. We hope this question sparks some fun ways that preteens can use their creativity to honor God—not only through singing, but also with the way they use creativity to show God’s love to others.
