In Preschool, we are in I Samuel 17 this week as we study the familiar story of David and Goliath. We will use the Bible and the book, “David and the very Big Giant” by Tim Thornborough to “discover what happened when little, littler, littlest David fought big, bigger, biggest giant Goliath.” David could fight Goliath because he knew that God was the GREATEST! As you share this story with your children, help them know that “God is GREAT. God is GREATER than anyone else. God is the GREATEST in the whole wide world!” We can trust God to help us because he loves us and is on our side. Click on the Preschool Link below and learn with your kids!
In Elementary, our lesson this week is about Paul’s third missionary journey where he encouraged people in existing churches. As Paul traveled, he used every opportunity to tell people the good news about Jesus and to help the church. Paul was dedicated to Jesus, who called him to do the work of sharing the gospel. As you share this story with your children, remind them that we are also called, or told, to tell people the good news about Jesus. It may be difficult, but God gave us the Holy Spirit to know what to say and to help us have the courage that we need. As you talk together, discuss how you would tell others about Jesus and then practice sharing about Jesus.
