Coming up in Gateway Kids - Aug 17

Preschool/Toddler:
God loves us and takes care of us, just like a shepherd looks after his sheep. (Luke 15:3-7)

Elementary: 
We will take a look at 1 Samuel 24 were we find David running from King Saul. David has the perfect opportunity to take care of King Saul but trusts God’s timing. David respects King Saul and spares His life.

Our Bottom Line is: Respect those who are in charge, even when they don’t deserve it. 

Week 3 Elementary God Time Devotional

Each day’s devotion includes:

1. a verse(s) to read 
2. a devotion paragraph that teaches something about God and an explanation of today’s verse(s) 
3. an activity that makes real-life application of the day’s devotion 
4. a suggested prayer.

Encourage kids to choose four different days during the week to do these devotions. Even though kids in early elementary are beginning to read things on their own, you may want to do the GodTime card with your K-3rd grade child. Most 4th and 5th graders are capable of having a “quiet time” on their own, once they’ve been taught how to do it, but they still benefit from an adult following up on it.
