In Preschool, we are in Daniel 6 this week as we study another familiar story from the Bible; the story of Daniel getting thrown in the lions’ den. We will look at Daniel 6 and the book, “Daniel and the Very Hungry Lions” by Tim Thornborough to “learn about a man called Daniel, a king called Darius, some VERY hungry lions, and the one true God.” As you share this story with your children, help them know that “God is the one true God who lives forever.” We can trust him to be in control of all things.

In Elementary, our lesson this week is about Paul getting to tell rulers in Caesarea about Jesus in Acts 24-26. He is in prison, waiting to be put on trial, for two years! Even though things were not going according to Paul’s plan, he knew God had chosen Paul to take the gospel to Gentiles, kings, and the Israelites. (See Acts 9:15-16.) Paul was confident that Jesus has the power to save people from sin, and he was willing to do whatever it took to share the gospel. As you share this story with your children, help them think about how Paul might have felt as he spoke before rulers and remained in custody for two years. Lead them to consider how God was at work to keep His promises in Paul’s life. How has he kept his promises in your life?
