Key Item: Donuts
Serve traditional O-shaped donuts. Tell the children that the O stands for Obey, because we should obey God's instruction. Today's Bible lesson is about a time when King Saul didn't obey – and that didn't turn out so well for him.
Donuts are shaped like an O. Do you know any words that start with O?
I know an important word that starts with O, that has to do with our Bible lesson tonight. The O stands for Obey. We are supposed to obey God.
Tonight we're going to learn about a King named Saul who didn't obey God, and we'll find out how that worked out for him.
Additional Snack Items:
To make the snack more substantial, we served hot dogs and fruit alongside the donuts. We also provided Kool-Aid to drink.
