This three-session unit in the Connect series for junior high classes will allow youth to look into the life of David, son of Jesse, who became King of Israel.
Session 1: David, A Nice Boy with a Rock - shows how God used an unremarkable boy to do remarkable things on God's behalf, and how God can use us in similar ways.
Session 2: David, Kingdom Builder and Songwriter - helps students see that David's faith had many facets - both as a political and military leader and as a psalm writer. Our faith too has many expressions, and all are valuable to God.
Session 3: David, Murderer, Sinner and Child of God - gives youth an opportunity to understand David's sin, God's forgiveness and how God offers forgiveness and new life to us today.
