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.

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!
