Moses on the Mountain


The account of Moses on the Mountain in Exodus 33, is full of drama and suspense. It is a great story to tell with all the generations together. This intergenerational activity includes banners, thunder rolls and flashes of lightning! It really brings the story to life in a way that will involve everyone in your congregation. It also works well for community events, allowing the story to speak for itself.

This intergenerational activity takes a bit of preparation, but it is well worth the effort. You will need to download the script from the link below.

You will need: 

  • Script
  • Music: The Steward of Gondor (Youtube clip)
  • A4 Cards: enough for 1 per 4 people 'I have carried you on eagles' wings and brought you to myself'
  • 6 grey banners: one suggestion is to sew a length of grey fabric 2metres long by 50cm wide, with a sleeve to hold a length of dowel approx 80cm long. A quick alternative is to wave scarves. Choose blue or grey or black scarves if possible. 
  • 6 yellow streamers or lengths of ribbon (approx 4-5metres long)
  • A helpful sound person to play the music in the background
  • Optional extra: a trumpet player!
