Gideon and the 300 | Judges 6-7

 

Lesson Goal:
To teach about the story of Gideon and his 300 men. In this story, we’ll see that God is stronger than our weakness, and He is able to save by many or by few.

 

Opening Prayer:
Dear God, thank You for being strong when we are weak. Help us to trust in Your strength when we feel alone or scared! In Jesus’ name, we pray, Amen.

 

 Bible Memory Verse:

II Corinthians 12:10 (NIV)

10 That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

Verse Memory Tips: (have your preschooler repeat the verse with you using the following hand/body motions:)

● “When I” - Stick your thumbs up and then point them to your chest.
● “Am weak” - Let your arms fall limp to your side then flop them around.
● “Then I” - Stick your thumbs up and then point them to your chest.
● “Am strong” Hold your arms up and flex.
