Elementary School Virtue Brief

Elementary School (Basket Case)

This week the kids will be discovering when Miriam had the responsibility of watching out for her brother Moses when he was floating in the Nile River. She thought on her feet and creatively figured out a way for Moses’ mother to be with him in the palace.


We will discover that God gave us an imagination to solve problems of any size. God created each of us in His image with care and expertise. We reflect God’s character when we use our creativity to accomplish what He prepared for us to do in this world.
