Wonder! Clubhouse – Blast Off week 2 #Quest

Bible Story: The Lost Sheep | Luke 15:3-7
Main Point: God loves me.
Memory Verse: “Nothing can separate us from God’s love.” Romans 8:39 (NIrV)

In August we’re blasting off with exciting stories and fantastic adventures as we discover how God made us, God loves us, and Jesus wants to be our friend forever!

In this week’s lesson, Jesus tells a parable of a lost sheep so we can see how much God loves us. Jesus talked about a shepherd who looked everywhere to find one sheep because the shepherd loved and cared for his sheep, just like God loves and cares for us!

Jesus told this story because he wanted us to know that God is our good shepherd. He loves us and He will come looking for us just like a shepherd looks for his lost sheep and saves the day. You don’t ever have to be worried about being lost from God. He will always find you because He loves you!

Memory Verse
Join us in helping your child learn Romans 8:39 (NIrV)! Children can recite the verse every week in August to earn a special Memory Verse take home to put on their poster.

Nothing (cross hand over hand)
can separate us (link fingers together)
from God’s love. (cross hands over chest)
Romans 8:39, NIrV (open hands like a book)

Knowing this verse helps children remember nothing can separate us from God’s love! Practice this verse with your child so they can recite it to their eGroup Leader this weekend in Quest!

Quest Collectible
Each weekend children visit Wonder! Clubhouse they get collectible cards to add to their poster. Once your child collects six cards and brings their poster back to Quest they can receive a special prize! Make sure your child keeps their poster in a place they can see it every day to help them remember what we are learning in Quest and to spend time with Jesus.

Rise Above – Week 1 #Motion

Rise Above

RISE ABOVE: Doing what God says, even when it’s tough.
BIBLE STORY: God Appoints Gideon | Judges 6:3-16a

This week we kicked off Rise Above, a two week series where we hope to send kids into a new school year ready to rise above the fear and negative voices that can try to drown out God’s truth in their minds.

During this series, we’ll be following a pretty average kid named Daniel as he encounters various voices in his life and see how he learns to rise above them.

To Rise Above means “doing what God says, even when it’s tough.” This week we learned that God’s people, the Israelites, faced a lot of enemies. God always had a plan to rescue and protect them, but sometimes His plan didn’t make much sense to His people, like when He called Gideon, a man hiding from his enemy because he felt weak and small, to defeat the Midianites all by himself. But if we trust God and do what He says even when it’s tough, we can rise above our fear and win, just like Gideon rose above and defeated the Midianites!

See you next week for the last week of Rise Above!

Finders V – Week 5 #Motion

052516_eKidz_Motion_FIND5 (1)

Series Memory Verse: Proverbs 3:5-6, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.”
Main Point: My friends are my choice.
Bible Story: Joseph is Reconciled with his Brothers, Genesis 42-45

Here it is, the conclusion to Finders V!

Zack returns and Less is reunited with his parents! All ends well. During the episode, however, Less had to make a choice – would he choose to go through with the destruction of the computer for Goldman or would he help The Finders? He had the choice of which side would be his friends, and fortunately, he chose The Finders.

Joseph had the same choice – would he reconcile with his brothers or use his power to get revenge on them. He chose to forgive his brothers and reunite his family.

We also have that choice. We can choose our friends, and what an important decision that is. Very few things have a greater impact on our lives than our friend group. Talk with your family about their circle of friends, evaluate the impact they’re having on your lives, and talk about what adjustments may be necessary.
