HEBER SPRINGS, ARK. – The Primary Sabbath School class at the Heber Springs Seventh-day Adventist Church has been studying heroes in the Bible. Members from the church have tried to bring the Bible alive, making these presentations memorable with extra involvement, to show the children that the Bible is as relevant today as it was then. They are learning that putting on the armor of God involves a whole lifestyle and sometimes it’s not as easy as we might think.
Queen Esther still speaks today! One of the members, dressed as Queen Esther, came and talked with the children about standing for the Lord when it’s not popular and brought out many things from the life of Esther that still apply today. The children asked questions and were thrilled to meet “Queen Esther.” During the lessons on Joseph, one of the ladies made each child a handmade, quilted coat of various colors. The children wore the coats for a special worship service where they sang songs, read the Bible scriptures about Joseph and participated in worshipping the Lord.
