God’s Spiritual Armor
HEBER SPRINGS, ARK. – The Heber Springs Seventh-day Adventist Church recently had a very special Sabbath morning program. The Kindergarten/Primary class presented a special program based on Ephesians 6, titled “Young Warriors for Christ” presenting their knowledge and understanding of the need to be spiritually prepared to stand for Christ.
The Kindergarten/Primary class had been studying Christian spiritual preparation for several weeks before the program. The class had made their own outfits reflecting the spiritual armor of God as represented in Ephesians. These included the belt of truth, breastplate of righteousness, shoes of the gospel of peace, shield of faith, helmet of salvation and sword of the Spirit.
The Kindergarten/Primary class sang their theme song, “I Will Talk to God” and recited the Lord’s Prayer. The class then went through the armor of God, presenting each part of the armor and what it represents to the prepared Christian.
The members of the Heber Springs church were delighted with the children’s special presentation. They remarked on how much the children understood about each piece of the armor! These children are the lifeblood of our church and it is important to them to be able to share with the adults what they are learning! It is truly a blessing to be able to work with young children.
