Welcome to Kids Church @ Home
Last week we learnt that the Israelites had become unfaithful and God had allowed the Midianites to oppress the Israelites. But God is merciful. He chose Gideon to lead his people and defeat the Midianites. This is a miraculous victory, as Gideon considered himself to be weak and 'a nobody', but he trusted God.
Today's story comes from the next book in the bible, Ruth. The story in this book focuses on one family and on God's faithfulness and kindness to them.
You will find 3 activities attached:
- a colouring sheet that folds into a booklet
- a maze and 'fill in the missing letters'
- a word search for the older kids
Our memory verse
Psalm 121 - last week we learnt verse one. Today we will add verse two.
- I look to the hills! Where will I find help?
- It will come from the LORD, who created the heavens and the earth.
Let's now join in with Colin Buchanan and sing our song for this term: 'God Never says Oops'
And finally, let's close with a prayer

Dear extension kids,
Today I am providing you with a link to a more detailed version of the story of Ruth. It is told from Naomi's point of view and will give you some background knowledge to future stories in the bible.
Ruth's son, Obed, will become the grandfather of David, and some of you may remember, that Jesus was born into David's family.
Here is a crossword to help you bring the main points of the story together.

Let's finish with the 'Sandy Tales' Lord's Prayer.
