Before You Teach

God had chosen prophets and judges like Samuel to lead the Israelites. But the Israelites decided they wanted to be like other groups of people and began demanding for a monarchy and a king. Samuel warned them that having a king was a bad idea, but they wanted to be like everyone else. God told Samuel to give the people a king, and Saul was chosen as the first king of Israel. Samuel anointed Saul by pouring oil on his head. Then the Spirit of God came on Saul, and God gave him a new purpose.

What’s Different (Puzzle)

Make a copy of the puzzle for each child.

SAY: Samuel chose Saul to be the first king in front of all the tribes. Look carefully at the two pictures and find 10 differences. Circle them as you find them.

• Allow the children time to find and circle the ten differences.

• Invite the children to color the pictures.

Would You Rather…or…? (Group Activity)

Print a copy of Would You Rather.

SAY: Samuel had to make a tough decision. He went to God in prayer. God helped him know what to do. How do you make tough decisions?

• Say, “Would you rather” and then read the two options to the children.

• Invite the childre to choose which one they’d choose.

• Continue until you’ve made it all the way through the choices

TIP: Even if the children cannot respond in real time, leave space between questions for them to “tell” you. This interaction helps make the session more effective.


Read the Bible Story

• Find 1 Samuel 7:15–8:22; 10:17-24 in your Bible, or read the story “Samuel Anoints Saul” from the Deep Blue Bible Storybook (pp. 118–121).

ASK: Why did the Israelites want a king? (They wanted to be like everyone else.) What did Samuel warn them about kings? (Samuel didn’t think the people would like the way a king would rule.)

See the Bible Story

SAY: After church, the kids ask Pastor Kim about the scarf around his neck. He tells them about it. It is called a stole. He shares with them about when God called him to be a pastor.

• Watch today’s episode here:


ASK: What does God ask you to do?

Sacred Conversations

ASK: The Israelites wanted to be like the other communities. When have you wanted to be like others?


SAY: Before we end today, we are going to share a blessing with each other. Blessings show how special you are to God.

• Go around the room and say the blessing to each child.

SAY: (Person’s name), God loves you. God remembers you. God will always be with you.

PRAY: Dear God, thank you for loving us and leading us. Thank you for the leaders in our community; in Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.

Hide and Seek (Extra At-home Activity)

SAY: After Saul was anointed as king, he hid. Why do you think he hid? When have you wanted to hide?

“But all the other countries have kings,”

said the people. “We want to be like them.”

“You won’t really like

having a king,” said

Samuel. “A king will

will make you pay

money to him.”


“We do want a king!” said the people.

So Samuel told God that the people

people looked for Saul,

they couldn’t find him!

He was hiding behind

jars filled with supplies.



The people ran and found Saul.

“God has chosen Saul to be your king,”

said Samuel.

in this story?
