Monthly Focus: Who’s got it? (God’s got it!)
Bible Story: Hagar and Ishmael | Genesis 21:14-20
Main Point: God hears me and gives me what I need.
Memory Verse: “He is the great God, the mighty and awesome God.” Deuteronomy 10:17 (NLT)
It’s time to come to the castle to hear stories of the King! This month, we’ll explore the stories of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, Hagar, Gideon, and Daniel. As we learn about the amazing things God did for each of these Bible heroes, we’ll see that God is always with us and He has everything under control. God’s got it!
In this week’s lesson, God hears Ishmael crying and provides the water he needs.
Just like God gave Hagar and her son what they needed, God gives us what we need, too. God’s got it!
