Bible Story: Building the Tabernacle | Exodus 24-39
When a mysterious and elusive astronaut begins scaring away all the kids at Camp Jupiter, the camp is forced to consider immediate shutdown. Mr. Stone, the camp director, turns to the Finders for help. To get to the bottom of their weirdest mystery yet, the Finders will have to work together like never before and cooperate with an eager new ally. Can they pull together in time to solve a mystery that is out of this world? Or is Camp Jupiter headed toward a black hole?
While it seems The Finders have a lot to learn about cooperation, in our eGroups we dug into God’s Word to find a great example of cooperation in Exodus.
When God commanded Moses to build the tabernacle, He didn’t ask Moses to do it alone. It was way too big a job for one man to do by himself! God instructed Moses to have the people of Israel work together to prepare His tabernacle. When they worked together, the Israelites were able to create the perfect place for God’s spirit to live among them. Just like the Israelites, we can work together to get God’s work done.
