Title David Fights the Big Bad Giant
Passage 1 Samuel 17
Big Idea God uses little people to do big things!
Memory Verse 1 Timothy 4:12
Conversation Starters

ASK: When Goliath shouted, were the Israelites scared or not?

ASK: Who said they would fight Goliath?

ASK: Who won, David or Goliath?

Activities

Sling-a-Thing

  • Supplies: Sock, tennis or rubber ball, Goliath picture, tape Preparation: You, or have your child, draw a picture of Goliath to put on the wall. Create a tape line on the floor about 6 feet from the wall. Place the rubber ball inside the foot of the sock.
  • Directions: Have your child stand at the tape line, swinging the sock with the ball around like a slingshot and hurling it at the picture of Goliath, as David did. Before they can hurl the sock, though, they must say, “God does big things through little people.”
  • Say: It was hard to hit Goliath like little David did. He wasn’t alone, though. David was able to defeat Goliath because God helped him.

 

Shadow Verse

  • Supplies: Flashlight
  • Today’s Bible verse:

    “Don’t let anyone (shake head and gesture with hands “no”) look down on you (place open hand above eyes and look down) because you are young (move hands towards the ground).

    1 Timothy 4:12 (put palms together like you’re holding a book).

    Directions: Practice the Bible verse together until your child remembers it. When ready, turn the flashlight on and, if possible, dim the lights in the room. Have your child face a wall, then shine the light on them so it casts their shadow onto the wall. Tell the child to say the verse with the hand motions

Title David Fights Goliath
Passage 1 Samuel 17
Big Idea God is with us and gives us strength, so we can face our fears.
Memory Verse Isaiah 41:10a
Conversation Starters

For Younger Kids:  

  • What was your favorite part of this story?
  • If you had seen Goliath, would you have reacted like the Israelite army or like David? Why?

 

For Older Kids:  

  • What do you think this story teaches us about God?
  • Why do you think David wasn’t afraid of Goliath even though the other Israelites were?

 

Activity & Response

Facing the Giants

  • Say: Today, we got to hear how David found the courage to stand up to a giant. We all have giants in our lives, although they might not look like Goliath. A “giant” in our life could be anything that’s too big or scary for us to deal with on our own. We’re going to do an activity right now that will help us think about what those “giants” are and how we can overcome them.
  • Directions: Measure out 9-feet (3 meters) on the driveway and have your child use sidewalk chalk to draw Goliath. You might want to let your child trace your body from the waist up. Your child can then extend the body and legs downward to the bottom of the 9-feet. Let your child draw with as much detail as they want. When finished, ask the following question:
  • Question:  What kind of “Goliaths” do you have in your life? In other words, what are some things that are too big or scary for you to deal with on your own?
  • Directions: Tell your child to write in large letters or draw their answer somewhere on Goliath’s body. Next, beginning about 6 feet from the drawing, have your child a bean bag or some other object they could use to toss to try to land on Goliath’s forehead, but first, they have to recite the beginning of today’s Bible verse:
  • So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God..” Isaiah 41:10a
  • After reciting the verse, have your child throw the bean bag. The object is to hit Goliath in the head.

 

Prayer Experience: Write a prayer telling God about something you’re afraid of. Ask God to give you the strength to stand up to that fear.

Journal: Imagine that your fear was a real person. Write a letter to him. Start the letter off with “Dear Fear,” and then tell him about how God is with you and that he can go away.

God’s Word: Read it for yourself: 1 Samuel 17. Draw a picture of the story or write to God your favorite part of the story. Tell Him why you liked it.

Art: Draw a picture of something that scares you. When finished, draw a big, red “X” through your picture. Write the words, “God is with me. I am not afraid.”
