QUEST 

3 YEARS – KINDERGARTEN

This weekend, we learned that God knows everything so I can be brave. Even when God’s plan didn’t seem to make sense, Gideon trusted that God knows everything. Gideon’s trust in God helped him win a battle against a much bigger army. We can trust God like Gideon did because God knows everything! Check out this week’s curriculum recap here.

Question 1: God told Gideon and his army to use trumpets, torches, and clay jars during the battle. Did those tools make sense for them to use in a battle? (no)
Question 2: Was Gideon’s army much bigger or smaller than the Midianites’ army? (much smaller)
Question 3: Even though God’s plan seemed strange, Gideon was brave because he trusted that God knows everything. Can you trust God, too? (yes)
