THEME: “HONORING GOD”
Memory Verse: So all Israel brought up the ark of the covenant of the Lord with shouts, with the sounding of rams’ horns and trumpets, and of cymbals, and the playing of lyres and harps. Give praise to the Lord, proclaim his name; make known among the nations what he has done. Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written: Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only”. [God’s] kingdom come, [God’s] will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. -1 Chronicles 15:28; 1 Chronicles 16:8; Matthew 4:10; Matthew 6:10 (NIV).
