Crayons 12-Week Children's Ministry Curriculum
The Colorful Life of King David
Crayons come in many shades and hues. David – a man after God's own heart – lived a life filled with as many shades as you would find in a box of crayons. When we look at the colors of David's life, we see an image of what happens when we let God draw the picture of our lives.

Memory Verse: “For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his love for those who fear him.” -Psalm 103:11Purple – Purple was long considered the color of royalty.

Brown – David defeated Goliath with a sling a small brown stone. Kids will learn that with God on our side, we can do much with just a little. 1 Samuel 17:20-49, David And Goliath
Green – Saul was green with envy because the people loved David. Kids will learn that when we let envy into our lives, it can destroy us. 1 Samuel 18:1-16, Saul's Jealousy of David

Black – Things could have gotten a little dark when God blocked David's plans to build a temple. Kids will learn that even when things get black and our plans fail, we can still trust that God is in control. 1 Chronicles 17:1-15, David's Plans For The Temple
White – David's anger burned white hot when he realized how he had sinned against God. Kids will learn that no matter how we've sinned, we can always turn to God who will forgive us and make us clean again. 2 Samuel 12:1-10, Nathan Rebukes David
