Big Idea: Who is our Forever King? Jesus is our Forever King!

Memory Verse:  “The Lord looks at the heart” – 1 Samuel 16:7

Bible Story Focus: David is Anointed King (1 Samuel 16:1-13)

Lesson Overview:
In this lesson, kids will hear the story of how God rejected Saul as king because of his disobedience and then chose his new king, David.  They will hear the story of Samuel anointing David as King as a young boy because even though he wasn’t strong looking on the outside, God was looking at the heart of David, a man who loved God.

Circle Time Discussion:

Have you ever been told you are too small to do something? What?

I Wonder Questions (snack time discussion):

I wonder…why did God need to choose a new king? (Because Saul was not a good king to the people.)

I wonder…why did God choose David to be the King? (God looked at David’s heart and saw David loved God.)

I wonder…who is the Forever King that God sent many years later? (Jesus)

Summer Curriculum Overview: This summer, Kindergarten-5th Graders will join Christian on his pilgrim journey from the City of Destruction to the Celestial City as we read an adapted version of Little Pilgrim’s Progress.  During our weeks together, children will learn that Christian’s story is the story of everyone who follows Jesus.  This story begins as God calls people to himself and continues as they walk the difficult journey of faith through many struggles, triumphs, temptations, and victories.

Memory Verse: Finally, let the Lord make you strong.  Depend on his mighty power.  Put on all of God’s armor.  Then you can remain strong against the devil’s evil plans.  Ephesians 6:10-11

Lesson Summary: Children will read and discuss Chapter 3: “Interpreter’s House and the Place of Deliverance” from Pilgrim’s Progress.  In this chapter, Christian arrives at the small gate.  He’s welcomed inside by Goodwill and starts on the straight and narrow path.  He stops at Interpreter’s House and learns several important lessons for the journey that lies ahead.  He continues traveling until he reaches the Cross at the Place of Deliverance.  Here his burden comes loose, rolls away, and disappears forever.
