‘Samuel Helped At Church’

(1 Samuel 1:20-28; 2:11, 18-21, 26; 3:1-2, 15, 19)

Hannah had a baby boy and named him Samuel. When he was a little boy, Samuel went with his mother and father to the church.

Eli was a teacher at the church. Hannah wanted Samuel to be Eli’s helper at church. Eli could show Samuel what to do to help at church.

Samuel was a good helper for Eli. Every morning Samuel would open the doors for the church. Samuel listened to Eli and did those things Eli told him to do.
