Elementary, September 6: Rahab Helps the Spies

Hi Journey Kids parents!

God promises to help those who call upon Him. Rahab didn’t exactly ask God for help, but she did demonstrate her faith in God by asking two of God’s people for help when the nation of Israel was preparing to conquer her hometown of Jericho. God used them not only to save Rahab’s life, but also to welcome her into the people of God. We’re diving into that incredible story this week!

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 YouTube playlist here.) It’s a great way to engage spiritually with your family. And don’t forget to participate in the worship videos from Yancy afterwards—one song is for older kids and one is for younger kids.

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

Bible Story: Rahab Helps the Spies

Big Idea: God hears our prayers so we can call out to Him with our whole heart.

Memory Verse: “When I was in trouble, I called out to the Lord. I cried to my God for help. From his temple he heard my voice. My cry for help reached his ears.” Psalm 18:6 (NIrV)

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

God still promises to help those who call upon Him. You can call upon Him, too. Rahab showed incredible faith in the God of Israel. We can put our faith in and call upon the same God. Call on Him now. He is good and He is ready to answer you.
