Look back:  Read back over 1 Samuel 14 and remember salvation that comes from God is not aided by the numbers or weaknesses of men.

Look ahead: This coming Sunday, Pastor Michael will be preaching from 1 Samuel 15. Read the passage several times during the week with your family.

Ask: Why was Saul's behavior sinful? 

Pray: Adoration: Praise God for his word which is true, sufficient, authorative, inerrant. and infallible. Confession: Confess any sin the passage brings to mind. Thanksgiving: Give thanks for the gospel and anything else the passage brings to mind in your life and your family. Supplication: Pray for your neighbors and think of ways you might reach out to them.

From Sunday School November 13:


This is the big idea of how this week’s Bible story points to Jesus.

  • Younger Preschool: Nahum told God’s people good news. He said that God loves His people and takes care of them. Jesus also has good news for people who know and love Him. One day, Jesus will take away all bad things.
  • Kids: Nahum brought a message of comfort to God’s people, reminding them that God loves His people and will protect them from their enemies. Jesus also brought a message of comfort, salvation, and peace to His people. All of the enemies of God and His children were defeated at the cross. One day, God will finally judge all evil.


This is an important biblical truth that your child will encounter each week of this unit. 

  • Younger Preschool: What makes people special? People are special because God made us. 
  • Kids: What makes people special? People are special because we are made in God’s image, as male and female, to know Him.


This is a Bible verse that relates to what your child will encounter each week of this unit. 

  • Younger Preschool: I will praise God because He made me. Psalm 139:14
  • Kids: For it was you who created my inward parts; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I will praise you because I have been remarkably and wondrously made. Your works are wondrous, and I know this very well. Psalm 139:13-14
