FearBusters | Week 3 #Quest

091714_eKidz_Quest_FearBusters_MainGraphicv3orange-01

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.

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!

Bible Story: Jesus Stops a Storm | Matthew 8:23-27
Main Point: When I’m Scared, I Will Trust Jesus!
Memory Verse: “I prayed to the Lord and He answered me. He freed me from all my fears.” Psalm 34:4

Lesson Overview
Using truth from God’s Word, Beaker and Agent Lou True have helped us BUST our fear of the dark and even helped our Monster friend BeBo bust his fear of the dark, too!

This weekend, our friend MiMi Monster was afraid of a thunderstorm. The rain, thunder and lightening made her so afraid! Agent Lou True helped MiMi Monster by reading a story from God’s Word, the Bible! He read about a time when Jesus and his friend were sailing on a boat together. After teaching all day, Jesus laid down for a nap in the boat. During his nap, the wind began to blow hard and the waves splashed so hard. Jesus’ friends woke him up to help save them from the storm, and Jesus calmed the wind and waters. After reading the Bible story, MiMi Monster learned she can trust Jesus when she’s afraid!

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: Noah and the Ark, Genesis 6-9
Main Point: I have the courage to change!

In our movie this week, we watched the Croods, a family of cavemen, overcome their fear of change and the unknown in order to survive cataclysmic events. We talked in our eGroups about how many times, we fear change as well. New schools, new friends, and other new environments or scenarios can be scary.

We turned to the Bible to help us see how to handle this fear and looked at the story of Noah. Much like the Croods, Noah and his family faced a cataclysmic event – a worldwide flood. Their entire world changed and was never the same. Rather than giving into fear, however, Noah trusted God, obeyed him, and as a result, he and his family were saved.

When we face change, whether it’s big or small, our best approach is to be like Noah. We need to put our faith in God, listen carefully to what he tells us to do, and obey what he says. And when we do, we invite God into our situation with us and his presence will get us through anything we face.
