God calls Samuel

SUNDAY IS COMING & KIDS IS BACK ON
BridgeKIDS is starting again this Sunday morning and we’ll be signing in children at 10:00am in the big space just past the gym entrance so hopefully it’s a nice and quick drop off for you and them.

GENEROUS GIVING
Rio, the puppy, will be ready to eat money this weekend. You’ll find him on the sign in table. The money that we collect goes towards our sponsorship of Miguel, from Mexico, through Compassion.
Thank you for helping us to send money to help Miguel. .

TO READ TOGETHER
1 Samuel 3:1-20
When God speaks and kids listen, great things can happen. Samuel grew up in the temple and one night he heard the voice of God. Samuel grew up to be the last judge in Israel and he anointed Saul and David to be king. He practiced listening to God as kid and learned to recognize His voice when He called.

TO LEARN TOGETHER

As Samuel grew up, the Lord was with him… 1 Samuel 3:19
He is with me too!

TO DO TOGETHER
Create a new bedtime routine for your family to do together or change up an existing routine. What helps you sleep well? A story? A snack? Prayers? A song? Listening to music? A bath? Follow the routing the rest of the week or month, remember what happened to Samuel the night God called him.


SO I’M WONDERING…
QUESTIONS TO ASK YOUR KIDS (AND YOURSELF)
Whose voice to you recognize when they call your name?
Samuel when to live with Eli to learn about God. Who teaches you about God?
Why is it sometimes hard to listen to God?

FAMILY PRAYER
Dear God,
Thank You that You speak to us. Thank You that You use people of all ages to help You. Teach us to recognize Your voice.
Amen
