Our prayer is that this resource will allow your family to grow closer to each other as we grow closer to God. This page is created so all you have to do is scroll through and follow the prompts to lead your family in church at home. Have fun with it. Feel free to let one of your children lead the lesson.
Watch the Bible Story Video below and then discuss as a family the Review questions that follow.
For the Israelites, the Tabernacle was the place where God met with him. But Christians today don't have a tabernacle. Because Jesus died on the cross for our sin and rose again to defeat death, everyone who trusts in him has the Holy Spirit living inside. That means that all believers have God dwelling with them. We don't have a tabernacle because it's no longer necessary. Jesus has made the way for us to live with God forever.
God told the Israelites to build a tabernacle where he would dwell with them. God wants to be with his people. As part of his plan to save sinners, God sent Jesus to dwell on earth with people.
Why do Christians go to church if God is everywhere?
How has the church helped you or encouraged you?
Why does God want to live with people?
Why does sin separate us from God?
Why don’t Christians use a tabernacle to meet with God?
Take a few minutes to memorize Psalm 95:6-7 as a family. We are using the Christian Standard Bible version.
Ephesians 3:20-21 (NIV) says:
"Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen."
