Cathy's Corner: Saul Chosen as First King

Thursday, September 3, 2015
This is the first in a series of David and the people in 1 and 2 Samuel. This post is found in 1 Samuel 9-10 and the study is God telling Samuel the prophet that He would pick the first king and Samuel will be the one to announce that Saul will be the king to the people.
Cathy uses these visuals with a magnetic board. She cuts the pieces out, numbers them on the back (these have the numbers on the front for you already), laminates them and adds thin magnets on the back. Put your title up first, then add and take away each visual as you teach the lesson. They can also be used as visuals alone, a flip chart, and/or a bulletin board. These visuals can also be attached to a large craft stick that you hold up as you teach.
