Each week you will emphasize one
aspect as well as briefly
covering the remainder of the commandments.
The first week you give the background – how the
forgotten God’s Laws while in slavery in
The week after the fourth commandment I would use it as a major revision of the first four commandments and emphasize that they all have to do with worshipping God.
The next week you would begin emphasizing of the remaining six commandments and the thirteenth Sabbath would be a revision of them all.Each week impress upon the children that the Ten Commandments show us what God is like and represent His character. God gave them to us because He loves us very much and wants to spend eternity with us.
For decorations you will need a large felt board in the centre or a prominent place on which to place a large felt Ten Commandments Stone background with a picture of Jesus’ face in the centre. Through out the program you will add pictures to represent each of the commandments. This will be your centre piece for the day. In one corner you could set up a Mt Sinai with people around it to represent when the Law was given to the Israelites. In another corner show Jesus as a boy either at worship or being kind or gentle and caring to show that Jesus kept the commandments when He was a boy.
I have a 40 inch felt Jesus which is attached to a piece of wood and I like to stand it up near the doorway where the children come in – showing that Jesus is welcoming them to Sabbath School.
