This Sunday at Weems Creek Kids - June 26

SUNDAY MORNING BIBLE STUDY: THE GOSPEL PROJECT

During the Sunday Morning Bible Study hour from 9:45-10:45, we use the Gospel Project curriculum. The Gospel Project immerses kids in the Gospel through every story, theological concept, and call to mission from Genesis to Revelation. We believe that the Gospel message changes everything; heart and life transformation can only take place when a child experiences the gospel. Through The Gospel Project, kids will understand the Bible is not just a collection of stories, but one unified story—God’s grand story of redemption.

WHAT YOUR KIDS ARE BEING TAUGHT THIS WEEK

After the death of Eli’s sons due to their sin, the nation of Israel lived under the rule of their last judge, Samuel. Samuel was the last of the judges because the people of the nation rebelled against God and demanded that a king like other nations. Samuel was upset, but at God’s insistence Samuel anointed Saul as the first king of Israel. God assured Samuel that the people had not rejected Samuel, but they had rejected God instead. God’s desire and intention was that the people would be presided over by a heavenly king - Himself - and that no earthly king was needed. God gave them their earthly king but warned them of the laws this king could enact and the many rules the people would now have to follow. The Israelites didn’t trust God and so they willingly placed themselves under the rule of the earthly king.

Christ Connection

Saul was not interested in leading God’s people and from the very beginning tried to hide during his public revealing. Saul’s attitude would change little, and by wilfully ignoring God’s commands for leading His nation, Saul ultimately would be rejected by God. God’s intent was to rule the people as their heavenly King, but the Israelites didn’t trust that plan. God had a better plan waiting, a plan to send His Son, Jesus. Jesus would be the perfect King who would bring peace and salvation to the world.
