Story Focus: In week 2, we head to 2 Samuel 6:12b-22a where we find King David in a powerful moment in Israel’s history. David had the privilege of bringing the ark of the covenant back to Jerusalem. He was so overwhelmed with gratitude and excitement that he danced and celebrated. David was willing to make himself look foolish to worship God for being faithful to the Israelites.
Bottom Line: Celebrate what God has done. Just like King David took time to thank God for being faithful, we pray that kids will learn to do the same. God has done so much for us. God will continue to show us love and faithfulness in the future and deserve all of our gratitude! We pray that kids will take time to celebrate and offer thanks to God.
Key Question: How can you show God you’re grateful? Saying thank you doesn’t have to feel like a chore. Preteens have great imaginations that can run wild as they discover all sorts of fun ways they can show gratitude to God (and others).
