The Temple Project

Early Elementary Workshop Rotation 2018-2019

SUNDAY MORNINGS, 9:30 AM

The Temple, like Rome, was not built in a day.

Early Elementary Sunday School’s Workshop Rotation 2018-2019 will include a special year-long project. Our Maker’s Space will walk where King Solomon walked and build a replica of the Temple in Jerusalem. We will use our best Bible research skills, online resources, and a variety of creative tools to fashion our model. Whether it is clay, stones, fabrics, or our 3D printer, we will work across the grades.

The Bible is rich with stories about and in and referencing the Temple. Whether it is the Ark of the Covenant in the Holy of Holies, young Jesus questioning the elders in his father’s house, or the curtain being torn when “it is finished” on Golgotha--the children of Second Church’s first, second and third grades will see and feel and know the word of God in a unique way this year. Plan to join us as we look at God’s people who followed God’s ways and put down a place for regular worship of the One True God. We hope you will make our Sunday School a regular place of learning and Second Church a regular place for your worship this year.
