Our Children's Ministry are hoping to be back by February 6th! But until then, here is our next online session for families to do together at home. This one is themed on Ezra re-building the second temple in Jerusalem, where you can hear the story of Ezra and Nehemiah (Nay-ham-eye-er) and build a lego version of the 2nd temple. You can also build the Arc of the Covenant, but as we learn, the Arc of Covenant was in the Old Temple and lost before the building of the Second Temple, but it was a Holy and Sacred object people saw a direct link to God as God gave them to Moses. However through the story of Ezra and throughout the Old Testament (sometimes called the Hebrew Bible) we can learn how the Israelites thought God lived in the Old temple, but over time learned that God isn't in one place but everywhere. The story of Ezra helps us learn about this history and how people's understanding of God changed over time. You will find everything you need from the templates and worksheets, to colouring sheets and the story in the attached PDF for you to print at home and below is your list of things you need:
