Week 18 - The Call of Samuel -
Bible Time FUN Through the Bible
Kids Bible Lesson 18 - The Call of Samuel

Welcome to week 18!

In this Bible lesson your children learn about Samuel and his call from God. When Samuel was about three years old, his parents brought him to the temple to be blessed.

Samuel became both a great leader to the Israelites and a prophet of God. Through this Bible story, the children learn that they are not too young to be used by God and that they must listen carefully when God speaks, because he communicates in many ways.

Have fun learning!

If you haven’t read the introduction to Bible Time yet, I recommend you read the outline about the Bible lessons for children first.

  • During story, draw attention to the key concepts for this lesson.

  • Don't forget to ask questions related to the story, for example, “What message did the Lord have for Samuel?”

  • The girls saw how God can use them even at a young age.

  • After the Bible story and discussion session, we stand up and do the interactive rhyme found in the Bible storybook

After the story and rhyme, we say a prayer that is related to the Bible story. You can either have your children repeat after you or allow them to come up with their own prayer.
