Welcome to Portals Projects! Each week we share projects that foster community building, creative thinking, problem-solving and character development. Invite your student(s) to pick a project that interests them to work on for a day or a week. Encourage them to share their plans, products or performances with the Portals community so we can all celebrate and grow together.
Week 4 - Praise and Worship
Hebrews 13:15 Through him then let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that acknowledge his name.
What is Worship? (Slides)
Attend a worship event or listen to a worship playlist. What is true worship? What elements of true worship can you identify? How do you feel afterward- toward God, yourself and the situations in your life? Share your experience either in writing (blog), as a video (vlog) or as a picture (word cloud).

Worship for Everyone
My family is having a family reunion and we want to have a time of worship together, but everyone likes different styles - Gospel, hymns, contemporary. What are 5 songs we could play?
Only instruments available are acoustic guitar and piano
Purpose is to give Thanksgiving to God for His faithfulness
Common enough that most will know the words without the words
What is that?
Imagine you are an explorer and you have discovered a new land. As you walk about you hear a strange sound and upon investigation you see a creature you’ve never seen before. Make a 3D or 2D representation of this creature along with a description of what it does and what it sounds like. It can be as realistic or fantastical as you want.
