This reader’s theatre/play is an excellent teaching tool focusing on the work that is needed to provide a safe place for God’s people to worship Him in Spirit and truth.

Nehemiah and the rebuilding of the wall around Jerusalem teaches us many lessons about our reliance on God for leadership and the value of working together to accomplish God’s purpose. The wall’s restoration provided the people of God with a safe place to worship God and keep the Feast of Tabernacles.

    This short Pentecost Readers theatre is especially appropriate for a pre-teen youth group, but will work for any age. The pre-teens enjoy making costumes for this play and creating the headbands with tissue paper flames that can be blown about by a fan to add drama to the script.
