   God’s Covenant with David

Family Starting Points

➤ Preschool

King Saul disobeyed God, but we should listen to God and obey Him. Like David, we should trust God to help us in every battle.God promises an eternal kingdom to David.


➤ Early Elementary (K-2)

God took the kingdom away from Saul because Saul disobeyed Him. God chose David to be the next king of Israel because David trusted in God. God promised to establish David’s kingdom forever.


➤ Upper Elementary (3-5)

Saul rejected God’s Word, and God rejected him as king. We also have a choice of accepting Jesus as the one true king or rejecting Him and facing eternal separation from God. David was chosen by God to be the next king of Israel. David trusted God to defeat a giant named Goliath. We need to repent and trust Jesus to overcome our greatest enemy, which is sin. David sought to build a house of worship for the Lord. Instead, God promised to build the house of David’s family and establish his throne forever through the person of Jesus Christ.


“For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.” - 2 Corinthians 5:21


During the month of August, the children of CPCoast will be reading through the book of 1 Samuel. Through the story of David, they will learn that all of us have rejected God’s command to love, trust, and obey Him. None of us obey Him perfectly. Our problem is not merely a lack of external rule-keeping; rather, our very hearts have gone astray. We are inclined to disobedience, and we stand guilty before a just God. No amount of prayer, penance, or punishment can ever pay for our sins. Because we have rejected God, we deserve to be rejected by Him forever. But we can rejoice in that this is not the end of our story. Although God is just, He is also merciful. God sent His perfect Son to take our punishment on the cross. Those who trust in Christ are forgiven of their sins because Jesus has removed their guilt and shame. He was counted as a sinner so that we could be counted as obedient and righteous.

If you love to hold babies and play with toddlers, we could really use your help. Please contact Tracy Hardy with any questions. [email protected]
