Do your kids know that God can use ordinary people to do extraordinary things? By reading about the judges in Israel’s history, they’ll learn to follow God and hold his promises close to their hearts. In this Children’s Worship Program Guide, skit characters are transported into Clark Lewis’ adventure story. Throughout the skit, kids are allowed to choose what happens next in true mad lib style. It’s Clark Lewis’ story, but he wants you to be a part of his adventure!
This leader’s guide for Children’s Worship includes everything you need to lead a fun and worshipful experience! It is packed with skits, Bible lessons, and ancillary material to help you and your team bring The Story to life during your children’s church hour. For the corresponding Sunday school equivalent, see The Story Upper and Lower Elementary Leader Guides and kits.
