Long ago, God gave us a set of laws to live by so that our lives would be less hard if we followed them. These laws are called the Ten Commandments. The Ten Commandments help us to know how to live our lives. They help us to know right from wrong. The first four commandments tell us about our relationship to God. The other six commandments tell us about our relationship to one another. When we follow these laws, we are living the way God wants us to.
1. Do not worship any god except me.
2. Do not make idols.
3. Do not misuse my name.
4. Remember the Sabbath Day.
5. Respect your father and mother.
6. Do not murder.
7. Be faithful in marriage.
8. Do not steal.
9. Do not tell lies about others.
10. Do not want anything that belongs to someone else.
Our memory verse is Jeremiah 31:33b
"I will write my laws on their hearts and minds. I will be their God, and they will be my people." (CEV)
What we will learn:
Decorate a scroll that holds a special message in Creation Station.
Praising Puppets learn that life is easier when we follow the rules.
Make a movie as you act out a modern interpretation of each of the Ten Commandments and then watch it, in Apostle's Playhouse.
Visit Egypt, as a storyteller tells us how we got the Ten Commandments,
then play a Continuum Line game in Good News.
Spell out the Ten Commandments in a fast action game of Wheel of Fortune
and play the game In/Not in Antioch Arcade.
In Holywood, see a video on how Moses received the Ten Commandments from God, and then act them out under a black light.
