Going to “church”

The Bible tells us that Jesus went to the synagogue on Sabbath. In many locations He always made the effort. There was something special about gathering together on Sabbath. However, it’s so easy to fall into believing that the church building is “church”. It’s not! People are the church! The first Christians gathered together in homes, the Waldensians lived and had church in caves! I’m sure you’ve had church on a beach, or under a tree somewhere. Church is where believers come together. 

This craft couldn’t have come at a better time (COVID-19) where we can teach our children, church is not the building, but it’s us! When we meet online, that IS church, because it’s the followers of God coming together.

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Color in with pencils (inky pens can weaken the paper).
  • Score the fold lines before cutting.
  • Cut.
  • Fold creases.
  • Glue. Starting with the rectangular prism base. Then form the triangular prism roof. Attach these two together with the flap – it’s a little tricky, insert something thin like a skewer to push the two pieces of paper together. Using regular paper glue this only takes a few seconds to bond. 
  • ** HIGHLY RECOMMEND  THIS PAPER from Amazon** which I use for ALL my crafts because it’s a bit thicker than ordinary printer paper and prints brilliantly!!! (At the time of posting, price per sheet is less than 3 cents.)

** This is an affiliate link, which means if you make a purchase, Amazon gives me a tiny portion of the sale (this does not increase the price for you). Thank you in advance if you buy this paper!
