Bible Story: David and Mephibosheth | 1 Samuel 9:1-13
Main Point: I Am Kind!
Memory Verse: “This is my command — be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid.” Joshua 1:9a
Crafting with Sticks and Stones has never been so fun! We joined our friends and hosts of Calling Sticks and Stones to learn how to embrace God’s calling on our lives, just like David!
Quest children learned “I Am Kind!” from the Bible story about David sharing his things with Mephibosheth. David knew everything he had, his land, house, and food, came from God. He knew he should share what he had with others. He showed kindness to Mephibosheth and shared everything he had with him! Just like David was kind, we learned we can be kind, too!
