Hi Reign Forest Friends,
In the month of March, we are learning all about COOPERATION: Working together to do more than you can do alone.
God created us to work together in a community. Throughout the Bible, we see how God brought people together to accomplish something big for Him. When we work together, we reflect what Jesus envisioned for His followers. Our love for one another can point people to Him.
Today we learned how God’s people cooperated to build the sacred tent or tabernacle. We read throughout Exodus 28, 31, 35, and 39 how God chose people to work together. God could have had Moses build this on his own, but instead, God called expert artists and builders along with all kinds of people to work together to create this incredibly intentional place of worship. We also had fun playing several games where we had to work together to accomplish our goal.
Bottom Line: God wants us to work together. Sometimes we think it’d be better if we didn’t have to rely on anyone else to get a job done, but this isn’t how God created us. God created us for community, to work together and do more than we can do on our own. We hope that kids see the value in cooperation because cooperation starts with God.
Bible Verse #17 - “Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works” (Hebrews 10:24, NLT).
Bible verses for March are in your mailboxes today. Please have your child add these to his/her ring of bible verses. Everyone is doing an awesome job, and we are so proud of each of them!
Attached is the devotional paper that we normally send home with your child(ren). Going forward, we plan to attach the take-home paper to the RF update email for you instead of printing it out. Let us know how this works for you or if you would prefer a printed copy. Attached is also a coloring page from our story today if your child enjoys coloring.
Have a great week!
