Dallas Children Study the Sanctuary

December 01, 2005 | Julie Segura

Primary and junior Sabbath School class members at Dallas, Ore., studied about the sanctuary and its services. The children in the primary room built a large model of the sanctuary in their classroom, while the junior class members made individual paper models. The children learned all about the furnishings and their uses and the symbols that foreshadowed Christ and his work here on earth and in heaven.

Once complete, the children shared their new knowledge during the church service. The large sanctuary model was set up for all to see and enjoy while the children took turns explaining each piece of furniture and what it represented. They also performed songs relating to the sanctuary service and what they had learned during the previous two quarters.

All church members came away from the service blessed. One member told the children that she had never understood the sanctuary service as well as she did after their presentation.
