King of the tower – the aim of this game is to get your ‘king’ (ideally a piece from a board game) higher than anyone else’s. Give each student the same number of “building blocks” and a time limit of 1 minute. Building blocks can be anything, not just blocks! (piece of paper, cup, sticky tape…)

David's City (2 Samuel 5) | Story

Today’s bible hero is David because he shows us the gift of UNITING

Essential Teachers notes:
David’s story is truly a saga. That young teen or boy that was called in from tending sheep to be anointed by Israel’s holy prophet, is now a thirty year old man in his prime. Anointed now as King, David recognises the squabbling between the tribes and knows he must unite them. Dwelling within any one would lead to issues and so he seeks a central place, controlled by none and yet flanked by Israelite’s – the stronghold of the Jebusites is perfect.
