King Saul of Israel did not follow God’s will, so God decided to find a new king.

 

He told his prophet, Samuel, to anoint David, a young shepherd from Bethlehem, as Saul’s eventual replacement.

 

When God turned away from Saul, the king was tormented by an evil spirit. David entered Saul’s service and soothed him by playing a harp.

In the beginning, when God created the heavens and the earth, the earth didn’t have any form.

 

Over the course of six days, God formed the earth and created everything on it. And at the end of each day’s work, he saw that all he created was good.

 

On the first day, God said, “Let there be light.” He separated the darkness from the light, calling the light “day” and the darkness “night.”

 

“Let there be a dome in the middle of the waters, to separate one body of water from the other,” God said on the second day. He called the dome “the sky.”

CHILDREN'S STORY

 

God was unhappy with King Ahab of Israel. Ahab was evil and did a lot of bad things, one of which was marrying Jezebel, a pagan who got the king to worship the false god Baal. 

 

So the Lord sent his prophet, Elijah, to give Ahab a warning. 

 

God said that no dew or rain would fall on the land for a long time. The dew and rain would only come again when God instructed Elijah to say so. 

 

After Elijah delivered God’s message, God told him to go into hiding.

CHILDREN’S STORY: 
One day, Jesus was teaching people in a synagogue on the Sabbath. 

 

Among the people in the crowd was a woman who was completely bent over. She had been forced into this awkward and painful position by a spirit, and she had been suffering for 18 long years. 

 

Jesus looked up and noticed her. 

 

“Woman,” he called out, “you are set free of your infirmity.” 

 

Jesus laid his hands on the woman, and she was cured immediately. The woman stood up straight and began to glorify God.

Jesus was traveling around Galilee with his apostles. At one point, he asked Peter, James and John to come with him up a high mountain. 

 

Once they were on the mountain, Jesus was suddenly changed. His clothes became a dazzling white, and Elijah and Moses appeared to speak with him. A cloud came and cast a shadow over everyone, and a voice could be heard saying, “This is my beloved Son. Listen to him.” 

 

Just as suddenly, the cloud, Elijah and Moses were gone. Jesus told them to say nothing of what they saw until the Son of Man rose from the dead.
