sojournkids at homeThis week’s SojournKids Bible lesson was "The God of Israel Cannot Be Captured” (1 Samuel 4-7).  Use the questions below to review it with your kids. You can also review the weekly North Star Catechism (below). READ: 1 Samuel 4-7 or Story 53 in The Gospel Story Bible

ASK: What happened in this story? People captured the Ark, but they were trying to capture God.

ASK: What happened to the idol Dagon when the Ark was in his temple? It kept falling over. Eventually, its hands and head broke off.

ASK: Who led the cows and cart back to Israel? God did. He is all-powerful and cannot be controlled or captured.

Check out the daily devotionals that correspond with this week’s lesson in the book, Long Story Short by Marty Machowski, pages 267-271.

This week's North Star catechism question is...

55. Who will come to God? We can't reach God, but he reaches us. God calls to his people, and they follow him.

John 10:27 –My sheep listen to my voice; I know them and they follow me.
