This skit dramatizes the Bible story where David battles Goliath. The scripture text for this incident is 1 Samuel 17. This script can be read during a Sunday School class or kids’ worship to give a feel for the story without requiring any rehearsal or advance preparation. It could be repeated to give more kids a chance to participate. You can improvise on the props – a stick or rule for a sword, etc.
This would be a good supplement to any lesson plan based the rise of King David. It could also be used as a review or stand-alone activity in children’s church. If you need a full lesson plan, be sure to download our David & Goliath Bible study for children. There is also an older version of this Bible Lesson intended for a Sunday School class. Don’t miss the story of King David coloring sheets.
