Bible Story: David Review | 1 Samuel 18-20; 2 Samuel 6, 9
Main Point: God gives me good friends!
Memory Verse: Therefore encourage one another and build each other up. | 1 Thessalonians 5:11
We’ve had so much fun learning to build great friendships from David and Jonathan’s story of friendship in the Bible. God gives us great friends to enjoy life with and we can thank God for all the friends in our lives!
We’ve been learning about two friends in the Bible, Jonathan and David. We can build strong friendships by having fun together, comforting each other, and helping each other, just like Jonathan and David! We can thank God for our friends because He gives us good friends.
Each weekend children visit Quest during this five week series they can collect main point tools to add to their Building Together poster. These tools will help remind them God gives us friends to build up and encourage. Children can collect five tools and bring their poster back to Quest to receive a special prize.
