Here’s what we’ll be talking about on Sunday, November 18th—
Elementary—God is with Worthy
Judges 6-8 (Gideon)
God is worthy of worship. Sometimes we forget that. The Israelites often forgot to give God glory and worshipped idols instead. Because of this, God allowed them to suffer the consequences of their actions. He allowed them to be conquered by their enemies.
In the book of Judges we read how God chose men and women to deliver Israel from their enemies. Gideon was one of these judges.
God used Gideon to lead 300 men against an entire enemy army to show He would win the battle for His people. God chose Gideon to show that only He is worthy of glory and worship.

Preschool—God is With Us
I Samuel 3 (Call of Samuel)
This week we’ll meet Samuel, a young boy who was the answer to a mother’s prayer. From a young age, Samuel lived with Eli the high priest and helped in the temple.
It was a dark time in Israel’s history. God continued to dwell with His people, but He chose to be silent, rarely giving visions or divine words to His people. Maybe it was because no one was listening.
God chose to break the silence. One night as Samuel was sleeping, he heard a voice call out his name. Samuel thought it belonged to Eli, but after three times, Eli realized the Lord was calling Samuel. Eli told Samuel to tell the Lord, “Speak, Lord, for your servant is listening.”
Samuel knew the voice of God and spoke His truth. Through Samuel, God was with Israel.
God will be with us today. We need to listen to His voice.

November Bible Verse: Psalm 52:9a
2 Year Olds–God is Worshipped
(Psalms) Foundational Truth: God made Me
Just as God made each of us amazingly unique, He also created us to worship Him. We can worship Him in many different ways. David is an amazing example of someone who worshipped God in spite of his circumstances. He understood his special relationship with God. This week as we go through the Psalms, children will talk about and experience different ways that we can worship God too.
