    Default Children celebration of the feast of Tabernacles

    Children celebration of the feast of Tabernaclesor ingathering.
    Tell the story of the Exodus
    Children build their own booth for table decoration for the days of the feast.
    1. Paper bag per child
    2. Cut off bottom of bag , so there is no ceiling or floor
    3. Then with pens and crayons they can decorate their booth.
    4. You can also gather small things in nature for them to glue on to their booth, leaves, twigs, hay, and flowers. Just anything that comes to mind.
    5. If using things from nature reinforce bag to handle weight.
    6. Then they can make people or other things to go inside their booth.

    Children can make posters of the feast of Tabernaclesin the wilderness with the mountain of GOD.
    Have a parade
    Flag- banners
    Wooden poles from craft store, construction paper
    Then they can draw on them symbols of the season. 10 commandments, light, crown, water, cross
    Fall harvest foods, bible
    Or ready-made symbols that they just glue on to the flag.

    Prayer for everyday of the feast
    Father
    Heavenly father King of the universe tonight we gather to remember your word that throughout our generations we are to celebrate this feast of Tabernacles before you. Lev 23:39-43
    Everyone
    We give praise to you Lord, who said to Moses, Give the following instructions to the people of Israel. These are the Lord’s appointed festivals, which you are to proclaim as official days for holy assembly
    Blessed are those who hear the word of God and obey it Luke 11:28
    Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my pathPsalm 119:105


    Father
    Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to the children of Israel, saying: ‘The fifteenth day of this seventh month shall be the Feast of Tabernacles for seven days to the Lord

    Everyone
    We praise you Lord our GOD king of the universe, who has chosen us out of all the people of the world and made us Holy through the wash of your word. You have shown us the way of life through your word because of your great love for us.
    Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. John 14:6
    Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life. John 5:24


    Father
    On the first day and last day of the festival you must have a holy assembly, when you do no ordinary work.
    Everyone
    We give you praise Lord for the gift of the this feast and the Sabbath rest as we remember our freedom and deliverance from sin that we may walk in obedience to you
    If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed"
    John 8:36
    Father
    On the first day gather branches from magnificent trees palm fronds, boughs from leafy trees, and willows that grow by the streams. Then celebrate with joy before the Lord your God for seven days. You must observe this festival to the Lord for seven days every year. This is a permanent law for you, and it must be observed in the appointed month from generation to generation.
    Everyone
    We give you praise Lord, There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven Ecclesiastes 3:1

    Father
    for seven days you must live outside in little shelters. All native-born Israelites must live in shelters. This will remind each new generation of Israelites that I made their ancestors live in shelters when I rescued them from the land of Egypt. I am the Lord your God.”
    everyone
    We give you praise Lord, just as you provided for the needs of the children of Israel in the wilderness ,
    You our God will supply every need of ours according to your riches in the glory in Christ JesusPhilippians 4:19
    Father
    The booths remind us that this life is temporary, Heaven and earth will pass away, but your words will never pass away Mark 13:31
    everyday
    We give you praise LORD, Your word is eternal; it stands firm in the heavens. Psalm 119:89

    For here we do not have an enduring city, but we are looking for the city that is to come.Hebrews 13:14

    For we looked for a city which has foundations, whose builder and maker is you our LORD.Hebrews 11:10

    Then read psalms Psalm 113-118
    Psalm 113-118

    The Majesty and Condescension of God

    113 Praise the Lord!
    Praise, O servants of the Lord,
    Praise the name of the Lord!
    2 Blessed be the name of the Lord
    From this time forth and forevermore!
    3 From the rising of the sun to its going down
    The Lord’s name is to be praised.
    4 The Lord is high above all nations,
    His glory above the heavens.
    5 Who is like the Lord our God,
    Who dwells on high,
    6 Who humbles Himself to behold
    The things that are in the heavens and in the earth?
    7 He raises the poor out of the dust,
    And lifts the needy out of the ash heap,
    8 That He may seat him with princes—
    With the princes of His people.
    9 He grants the barren woman a home,
    Like a joyful mother of children.
    Praise the Lord!

    The Power of God in His Deliverance of Israel

    114 When Israel went out of Egypt,
    The house of Jacob from a people of strange language,
    2 Judah became His sanctuary,
    And Israel His dominion.
    3 The sea saw it and fled;
    Jordan turned back.
    4 The mountains skipped like rams,
    The little hills like lambs.
    5 What ails you, O sea, that you fled?
    O Jordan, that you turned back?
    6 O mountains, that you skipped like rams?
    O little hills, like lambs?
    7 Tremble, O earth, at the presence of the Lord,
    At the presence of the God of Jacob,
    8 Who turned the rock into a pool of water,
    The flint into a fountain of waters.

    The Futility of Idols and the Trustworthiness of God

    115 Not unto us, O Lord, not unto us,
    But to Your name give glory,
    Because of Your mercy,
    Because of Your truth.
    2 Why should the Gentiles say,
    “So where is their God?”
    3 But our God is in heaven;
    He does whatever He pleases.
    4 Their idols are silver and gold,
    The work of men’s hands.
    5 They have mouths, but they do not speak;
    Eyes they have, but they do not see;
    6 They have ears, but they do not hear;
    Noses they have, but they do not smell;
    7 They have hands, but they do not handle;
    Feet they have, but they do not walk;
    Nor do they mutter through their throat.
    8 Those who make them are like them;
    So is everyone who trusts in them.
    9 O Israel, trust in the Lord;
    He is their help and their shield.
    10 O house of Aaron, trust in the Lord;
    He is their help and their shield.
    11 You who fear the Lord, trust in the Lord;
    He is their help and their shield.
    12 The Lord has been mindful of us;
    He will bless us;
    He will bless the house of Israel;
    He will bless the house of Aaron.
    13 He will bless those who fear the Lord,
    Both small and great.
    14 May the Lord give you increase more and more,
    You and your children.
    15 May you be blessed by the Lord,
    Who made heaven and earth.
    16 The heaven, even the heavens, are the Lord’s;
    But the earth He has given to the children of men.
    17 The dead do not praise the Lord,
    Nor any who go down into silence.
    18 But we will bless the Lord
    From this time forth and forevermore.
    Praise the Lord!

    Thanksgiving for Deliverance from Death

    116 I love the Lord, because He has heard
    My voice and my supplications.
    2 Because He has inclined His ear to me,
    Therefore I will call upon Him as long as I live.
    3 The pains of death surrounded me,
    And the pangs of Sheol laid hold of me;
    I found trouble and sorrow.
    4 Then I called upon the name of the Lord:
    “O Lord, I implore You, deliver my soul!”
    5 Gracious is the Lord, and righteous;
    Yes, our God is merciful.
    6 The Lord preserves the simple;
    I was brought low, and He saved me.
    7 Return to your rest, O my soul,
    For the Lord has dealt bountifully with you.
    8 For You have delivered my soul from death,
    My eyes from tears,
    And my feet from falling.
    9 I will walk before the Lord
    In the land of the living.
    10 I believed, therefore I spoke,
    “I am greatly afflicted.”
    11 I said in my haste,
    “All men are liars.”
    12 What shall I render to the Lord
    For all His benefits toward me?
    13 I will take up the cup of salvation,
    And call upon the name of the Lord.
    14 I will pay my vows to the Lord
    Now in the presence of all His people.
    15 Precious in the sight of the Lord
    Is the death of His saints.
    16 O Lord, truly I am Your servant;
    I am Your servant, the son of Your maidservant;
    You have loosed my bonds.
    17 I will offer to You the sacrifice of thanksgiving,
    And will call upon the name of the Lord.
    18 I will pay my vows to the Lord
    Now in the presence of all His people,
    19 In the courts of the Lord’s house,
    In the midst of you, O Jerusalem.
    Praise the Lord!

    Let All Peoples Praise the Lord

    117 Praise the Lord, all you Gentiles!
    Laud Him, all you peoples!
    2 For His merciful kindness is great toward us,
    And the truth of the Lord endures forever.
    Praise the Lord!

    Praise to God for His Everlasting Mercy

    118 Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good!
    For His mercy endures forever.
    2 Let Israel now say,
    “His mercy endures forever.”
    3 Let the house of Aaron now say,
    “His mercy endures forever.”
    4 Let those who fear the Lord now say,
    “His mercy endures forever.”
    5 I called on the Lord in distress;
    The Lord answered me and set me in a broad place.
    6 The Lord is on my side;
    I will not fear.
    What can man do to me?
    7 The Lord is for me among those who help me;
    Therefore I shall see my desire on those who hate me.
    8 It is better to trust in the Lord
    Than to put confidence in man.
    9 It is better to trust in the Lord
    Than to put confidence in princes.
    10 All nations surrounded me,
    But in the name of the Lord I will destroy them.
    11 They surrounded me,
    Yes, they surrounded me;
    But in the name of the Lord I will destroy them.
    12 They surrounded me like bees;
    They were quenched like a fire of thorns;
    For in the name of the Lord I will destroy them.
    13 You pushed me violently, that I might fall,
    But the Lord helped me.
    14 The Lord is my strength and song,
    And He has become my salvation.[a]
    15 The voice of rejoicing and salvation
    Is in the tents of the righteous;
    The right hand of the Lord does valiantly.
    16 The right hand of the Lord is exalted;
    The right hand of the Lord does valiantly.
    17 I shall not die, but live,
    And declare the works of the Lord.
    18 The Lord has chastened me severely,
    But He has not given me over to death.
    19 Open to me the gates of righteousness;
    I will go through them,
    And I will praise the Lord.
    20 This is the gate of the Lord,
    Through which the righteous shall enter.
    21 I will praise You,
    For You have answered me,
    And have become my salvation.
    22 The stone which the builders rejected
    Has become the chief cornerstone.
    23 This was the Lord’s doing;
    It is marvelous in our eyes.
    24 This is the day the Lord has made;
    We will rejoice and be glad in it.
    25 Save now, I pray, O Lord;
    O Lord, I pray, send now prosperity.
    26 Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!
    We have blessed you from the house of the Lord.
    27 God is the Lord,
    And He has given us light;
    Bind the sacrifice with cords to the horns of the altar.
    28 You are my God, and I will praise You;
    You are my God, I will exalt You.
    29 Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good!
    For His mercy endures forever.

    On the last day of the Feast of Tabernacles

    Father
    Pour out a pitcher of water on the ground
    On the last and greatest day of the festival, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, “Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. 38 Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.”[c] 39 By this he meant the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were later to receive. Up to that time the Spirit had not been given, since Jesus had not yet been glorified. John 7:37-39

    Everyone
    'In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams.Acts 2:17

    Father and mother
    The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.Numbers 6:24-26

    Everyone
    Amen

    Father
    We give you praise , Lord our GOD king of the Universe, Who has kept us alive, sustained us and brought us to this season

    Everyone
    Amen.
