God’s Story Table:

Here is a God’s Story Table video created by the Hampton Sunday School back in 2009 of David being a Shepherd, being anointed by Samuel, playing his harp for King Saul, and finally meeting up with Goliath. They set up the scenes and took the pictures. Luanne turned them into a mini-movie.

Lego Activity:

How about pulling out the Lego/Playmobil/Stuffed Toys, or dress-up. grab a sibling(s)/parent(s) to join you, whatever you have at hand, and create a scene of your choice from David and Goliath. It could be the shepherd, the musician, anointing, braving a giant. Take a photo and email it to Luanne, she’ll post your scenes below to share with your fellow Explorers.

Word Search

Print off the David & Goliath word search and grab a pencil!

Remember as you look for the hidden words, remember that they can be horizontal, vertical, or diagonal and that they can be listed frontward or backward.

I’m working on it now, where is that silly ARMOR word (American spelling of Armour), I can’t find it? LOL
