Today our youth group began studying the Ten Commandments.
We listened to the Ten Commandment Boogie by the Go Fish Guys and began learning our own Ten Commandments song (to the tune of “Farmer in the Dell”):
“The first commandment says, the first commandment says, love God more than anyone, the first commandment says.”
Next week will learn “The second commandment says, the second commandment says, worship no one else but God, the second commandment says.” Additionally, today we casted our handprints in salt dough, to remind us God has ten rules for us, and next week we plan to paint our salt dough creations.
We will finish this unit just after Easter and we have plans to sing our commandments song (the Farmer in the Dell version, not the boogie version) to the rest of the congregation once we have learned all ten verses, then have an ice cream party to celebrate.
