Monthly Focus: Who can help me? (God can help me.)
Bible Story: David Protects the Sheep ● 1 Samuel 17:34-37
Main Point: God can help me anywhere.
Memory Verse: “We have the Lord our God to help us.” 2 Chronicles 32:8 (NIV)
Things are going to happen in our’ lives where they we need God’s help — times when our lives will zig one way and then zag another. But God loves us and can help us anywhere, with anything, no matter how hard it may be. He can even help us help others! This month, we’ll learn about the life of David and how even when it zigged and zagged, God was there to help him.
In this week’s lesson, David protects his sheep from a lion.
Can you imagine what it must have been like for David, alone in that field, in charge of protecting all those sheep? But was he really alone? Nope! God was there to help him. We go so many different places, and God can help us anywhere we go!

the Lord our God. (one hand on hip, the other pointing to the sky)
to help us.” (both hands on hips)
