Annual Tabernacle Project


Every year, the sophomore Bible class works on building a model of the Tabernacle. The Tabernacle is a place for people to worship God, built by Moses during biblical times. Making a model of this structure helps students be able to visualize what it might have looked like when it was first made. Dr. Parks, the Sophomore World Civ teacher said,

The winning Tabernacle project was built by the 2d hour Bible class.

“The Tabernacle was the first the first expression God gave to man. Students recreating it helps them make the connection between what the Bible says and how it is in real life.”

Every class gets to work together to build one structure for the whole class. Monday through Thursday are the only days given to work and complete the whole project. Friday is a day of celebration and when people judge the final projects. When the winner is chosen out of all the classes, they get to be in the Hall of Fame of Tabernacle projects. The winner of this year’s Tabernacle project was the second hour. Steven Rodes,10, is in Bible second hour and he said, “It took a lot of hard work but it paid off and I learned a lot from the experience.” All students enjoyed the hands on experience and learned much about the Tabernacle.
