FearBusters | Week 4 #Quest

091714_eKidz_Quest_FearBusters_MainGraphicv3orange-01

Bible Story: Exploring the Promised Land | Numbers 13:1 – 14:35
Main Point: When I’m Scared, God is with Me!
Memory Verse: “I prayed to the Lord and He answered me. He freed me from all my fears.” Psalm 34:4

Lesson Overview
Our FearBuster team has been using God’s Word to BUST our fears and the fears of our monster friends! So far, we’ve busted our fear of the dark, thunderstorms, and bullies.

This weekend, our friend MoMo Monster was afraid of the new camping site his family was visiting. He didn’t know where anything was! But, Agent Lou True was there and helped MoMo Monster by reading a story from the Bible. He read a story about Moses and some men who explored some new land God had for them. In the new land the men found lots of yummy food, but also found some other men who were much bigger than them! That made some of the men very scared, but not two of the men, Caleb and Joshua. Caleb and Joshua told everyone not to be afraid because God was with them! No one listened to Caleb and Joshua, but God blessed them and allowed them to go into the new promised land! After reading the Bible story, MoMo Monster learned God is with us even when we are scared!

FearBusted Box
To help our FearBuster friends bust their fears, Quest children received a FearBusted Box to collect truths from God’s word to know what to do when they are scared. Each weekend children will collect another truth to put in their FearBusted Box!

In this week’s truth bag was a stretchy man! There were twelve men who explored the new land, but only two weren’t scared because they knew God was with them! Use the truth card to start a discussion with your child about their fears and to review the Bible story and main point.

Ask, “When you’re scared, who is with you?”

Memory Verse
Our memory verse during FearBusters teaches us that God can free us from all our fears.

I prayed (pretend to pray)
to the Lord (point up),
and He answered me. (cup hand to ear)
He freed me (wave arms and smile)
from all my fears. (make scared face)
Psalm 34:4 (hold up 4 fingers)

Spend some time during dinner or bedtime to review the verse with you child this week! Each weekend children can recite the memory verse for a ROAR-some monster prize in Quest.


Hollywood Highlight Reel 2 – Week 4 #Motion

Series Memory Verse: Psalm 56:3-4a, “When I am afraid, I put my trust in you. In God, whose word I praise – in God I trust and am not afraid.”
Bible Story: Esther Helps Her People, Esther 2-8
Main Point: I have the courage to help others!

We wrapped up our Hollywood Highlight Reel 2 series this week by watching the Halloween special, Toy Story of Terror, and watching as Jessie has to muster up her courage and save Buzz, Woody, and the rest of her friends. They faced a scary, mysterious beast roaming the halls of the Sleep Well Motel but by facing her fear and taking action, Jessie was able to rescue her friends.

We then looked at a heroine from the Bible, Esther. Esther faced down a villain and risked her life in order to save all the Jews living in Persia. Inspired by her courage, we talked about ways that we can help our friends as well. As we go through life, we will face various things that may scare us, but when we remember that God is with us and embrace His courage, we can overcome our fear and live the life God has called us to.

Don’t forget we start a brand new series next week, The Finders in: Warehouse 110. Check out the promo below for a sneak peak of what’s coming! If your child attended Motion this past weekend, they also received a DVD to be used as an invite for this next series. Talk with your child about who they could invite and then encourage them to invite their friend to church – it’s  going to be a great series!


FearBusters | Week 3 #Quest

Bible Story: Fiery Furnace | Daniel 3
Main Point: When I’m Scared, God Keeps Me Safe!
Memory Verse: “I prayed to the Lord and He answered me. He freed me from all my fears.” Psalm 34:4

Lesson Overview
The team of FearBusters has been working hard to bust fears away with God’s Word. Agent Lou True and Beaker have helped us and our monster friends not be scared of the dark and thunderstorms with stories from God’s Word.

This weekend, our friend Zingo’s monster meter was red, which means Zingo was really scared. Zingo was afraid of a bully on the playground who pushed him down. He was not being nice to Zingo Monster! Agent Lou True helped Zingo BUST his fear by reading a story from God’s Word, the Bible!

He read a story about a bad bully king who wanted everyone to bow down and worship a golden statue of himself. But there were three friends who loved God and didn’t want to worship the king. When the king heard this, he ordered the three friends be thrown into a fiery furnace! But when the king looked into the furnace, he saw four men in the fire instead of three. The three friends knew God would protect them and keep them safe, no matter what! After reading the Bible story, Zingo learned God keeps us safe when we are scared!

FearBusted Box
To help our FearBuster friends bust their fears, Quest children received a FearBusted Box to collect truths from God’s word to know what to do when they are scared. Each weekend children will collect another truth to put in their FearBusted Box!

In this week’s truth bag was a crown! Use the truth card to start a discussion with your child about their fears and to review the Bible story and main point.

Hollywood Highlight Reel 2 – Week 3 #Motion

Series Memory Verse: Psalm 56:3-4a, “When I am afraid, I put my trust in you. In God, whose word I praise – in God I trust and am not afraid.”
Bible Story: Joshua and Caleb, Numbers 13
Main Point: I have the courage to try!

This week, we watched as Sherman had to have the courage to try something he’d never done before in the movie “Mr. Peabody and Sherman.” A lot of times, it’s scary to try new things because we’re afraid we’ll fail, or look silly, or not enjoy it.

As we talked about that fear, we turned to the Bible to see two men who had the courage to try something scary. In Numbers 13, we read about the spies Moses sent into the Promised Land to scope it out. When they came back, most of the spies brought back a bad report and were too scared to go into the Promised Land. Two spies however, Joshua and Caleb, came back and gave a good report. They had the courage to try to go into the Promised Land. The reason they had this courage was because they knew God would be with them. For them, that was enough.

When we face things we’ve never done before, we can have the courage to try because we know God goes with us.

Also this week, we saw the trailer for the series that starts in two weeks. The Finders are back and in a brand new mystery! Check out the trailer below and make sure you’re here for The Finders in: Warehouse 110!
