Craft - Mission: The great commission: Not just Jerusalem, not just Israel, but the whole world
A fun craft on the Bible story of the great commission in Matthew 28
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. (Acts 1: 8)
In this craft, the children can cut out the four fences of Jerusalem and glue them together. They can have the Jesus figure locked inside these four fences of Jerusalem. This is a symbol of the early church staying in Jerusalem and therefor the gospel of Jesus being locked up in Jerusalem.
Through persecution of the church the believers spread out all over Israel and took the gospel of Jesus with them. The children can remove the Jesus figure from the four fences and put it on the coloured-in drawing of Israel. The gospel is meant for everyone in Israel.
Finally, they can put the Jesus figure on the coloured-in drawing of the globe. Jesus calls his followers to take him and his message of the gospel to all the nations of the world.
