The Esther unit uses the Bible story included in the book of Esther. Throughout the Bible we hear stories of people such as Esther, who was faithful and stood up for God. Her story can inspire us to learn more about who God wants us to be.
Scripture: Book of Esther
Bible Verse: Who knows, perhaps you have come to royal dignity for just such a time as this. (Esther 4:14)
By the end of this unit children will: 1) become familiar with the story of Esther; 2)discover that each of us is born to do something for God; 3) learn that God has special plans for each of us; 4) find that, like Esther, God wants us to be faithful and stand up for God; 5) explore their ability to make choices for God even when it is hard to do so; 6) learn about and experience some traditions of the Jewish festival of Purim.
