Elementary, November 21: God Calls Samuel

Hi Journey Kids parents!

God had a plan and a purpose for Samuel. He called Him to lead and to serve. You may not hear the audible voice of God the way Samuel did – but He is calling you, too. He has a plan and a purpose for you. He intends to use the gifts, abilities and passions He’s given you for His glory and the good of others. And He has a plan and purpose for your children. He created them with a vision for their lives. Isn’t that amazing? He calls each of us by name – with a plan and for a purpose.

When it’s time to begin, start your morning of family worship by watching the short lesson video with your kids. [You can access the videos here.] It’s a great way to engage spiritually with your family.

Here is a snapshot of the lesson details for this week:

Bible Story: God Calls Samuel

Big Idea: God knows us by name and calls us, so we can listen for His voice.

Memory Verse: “My sheep listen to my voice; I know them and they follow me.” John 10:27 (NIrV)

After the video lesson and music, you can use the attached materials to help take your family deeper into the lesson:

God has a plan and a purpose for you. Do you know that? I mean, really. Do you know that? Do you know that you were created by an intentional God who knows you better than you know yourself? If you don’t know why you were created, talk to Him about that this week. You were created on purpose and the world needs you to be all that He created you to be.
