The Parent Weekly


The Parent Weekly

We believe parents are the primary teachers in a child's life. Because of this, we post a Parent Weekly each Sunday which includes big ideas from that week’s teaching, the memory verse, questions for family discussion, and a look at where we’re headed the following week. Our hope is for this to be a helpful tool as you continue raising your kids to love God and love people.

Year 1, Spring: Lesson 13


What we learned today

Big Idea: Remember and Celebrate.

God is with us.


Where we're headed next time

Big Idea: God is powerful

1 Samuel 16—17. God had rejected Saul as king and sent Samuel to the house of Jesse where he would choose Israel’s new king. Samuel anointed David. God’s Spirit was on David and when he fought Goliath, David was victorious.


Dig into God’s word.

Read 1 Samuel 17v32–37. After reading, remind your child that David wasn’t afraid because he knew God is more powerful than Goliath.


Connect as a family

Your child may enjoy looking at his reflection. Allow him to see his own power by flexing his muscles in a mirror.

  • Why were the Israelites afraid of Goliath? 

  • How did David beat Goliath?



Blessings are often used in the Bible. A blessing can be a prayer of commission, a portion of Scripture, or words to encourage and guide.

Open a Bible and read Psalm 68v35b: “The God of Israel gives power and strength to his people. Praise be to God!”
