Lesson Overview

The chefs at Sprinkle and Spice and Everything Nice bakery are busier than ever baking cookies to fill all the holiday orders. See what happened in the kitchen this past weekend and if they were able to keep their joy while baking.

 

Chef Spice learned he can have joy even when things don’t go his way! Things didn’t go as Joseph planned; he was scared to take Mary home as his wife and there was no room in the inn, but he trusted God and chose to have joy!

Just like Joseph and his family chose to have joy, Chef Spice decided to have joy and bake some delicious Chocolate Chunk Snowballs with Pastry Chef!

FearBusters | Week 9 #Quest

091714_eKidz_Quest_FearBusters_MainGraphicv3orange-01

Bible Story: Daniel and the Lions’ Den | Daniel 6
Main Point: When I’m Scared God Helps Me Be Brave!
Memory Verse: “I prayed to the Lord and He answered me. He freed me from all my fears.” Psalm 34:4

Lesson Overview
For the past eight weeks children have learned how to BUST their fears with truth from God’s Word. This weekend, children trained to become FearBuster field agents, like Agent Lou True, to BUST the fears of their friends and family!

To be a FearBuster’s field agent you need to look in the Bible and find a Bible story to BUST away a fear! Let’s find a Bible story to BUST Mongo’s fear, find someone who is scared, and finally share what God’s Word says to help them BUST their fear!

Agent Lou True shared that he had a monster friend named Mongo Monster who was afraid of puppy dogs. Mongo was scared the puppies would bite him! Since we found someone who was scared – Mongo Monster – children were challenged to find a Bible story during eGroup to help Mongo Monster learn, “When I’m Scared God Helps Me Be Brave!” During eGroup, children were given different Bible stories to choose from that would help Mongo monster learn how to be brave.

Children chose to share the story of Daniel with Mongo Monster. Daniel loved God and prayed to Him three times each day. Others didn’t like this, so they got the king to agree to throw anyone praying to God into a den of lions! Daniel loved God and continued to pray to Him each day. This made the king sad because Daniel  broke the law, which meant the king had to throw Daniel into a den of lions. While in the den of lions, God sent an angel to protect Daniel. Daniel didn’t have to be scared to be thrown in the lions’ den. He could be brave because God was with him!

Quest children did a great job training to be a FearBusters Field Agent! They found a story in the Bible, found a monster friend who was scared, and shared God’s Word to BUST a fear and teach Mongo Monster, “When I’m scared, God helps me be brave!” Quest children became official FearBuster’s agent and can help BUST anyone’s fears with truth from God’s Word!


FearBusters | Week 8 #Quest

Bible Story: Life of David | Psalm 23, 1 Samuel 17
Main Point: God Freed me From All My Fears!
Memory Verse: “I prayed to the Lord and He answered me. He freed me from all my fears.” Psalm 34:4

Lesson Overview
We have learned so much in the FearBuster’s lab, using God’s Word to bust our fears and the fears of our monster friends! We have learned:

When I’m Scared, I Pray!
When I’m Scared, I Will Trust Jesus!
When I’m Scared, God Keeps Me Safe!
When I’m Scared, God Is With Me!
When I’m Scared, God Gives Me What I Need!
When I’m Scared, Jesus Can Heal!
When I’m Scared, God Helps Me!

This weekend, our friends MiMi and MoMo Monster were eating in the kitchen when our Agent Lou True visited them. But when he arrived, he found laughing monsters instead of scared monsters! Mimi and MoMo Monster told Agent Lou True there had no fears, but they would love to hear a story from the Bible. He read a story about a man named David and the special song he wrote about how much God loves us. This special song helps us remember even though we are scared, God is always with us and takes care of us. After hearing the Bible story, MiMo and MoMo told Agent Lou True they didn’t have to be scared because they KNOW God is always with them and taking care of them.

God frees us from all of our fears, just like he freed David from his fear of fighting the giant Goliath to save his people!

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 band aid! MiMi was afraid the boo-boo on her head wouldn’t heal, but we helped her BUST her fear with a story from the Bible. MiMi learned she shouldn’t have been scared of going to the doctor and her boo-boo not healing – Jesus can heal!  Use the truth card to start a discussion with your child about their fears and to review the Bible story and main point.

Ask, “Who can help BUST all your fears away?”

Memory Verse
Our memory verse during FearBusters teaches us that God can free us from all our fears. Children have one more weekend to recite the memory verse for a ROAR-some monster prize in Quest.

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)


FearBusters | Week 6 #Quest

Bible Story: A Sick Boy Made Well | John 4:46-53
Main Point: When I’m Scared, Jesus Can Heal!
Memory Verse: “I prayed to the Lord and He answered me. He freed me from all my fears.” Psalm 34:4

Lesson Overview
It can be scary when we get a boo-boo, but we’ve been learning we can BUST our fears and the fears of our monster friends with God’s Word!

This weekend, our friend MiMi Monster was really scared because she got a boo-boo on her head. She didn’t want to go to the doctor and was afraid her boo-boo would never go away either. Agent Lou True got there just in time to help bust her fear by reading a story from the Bible! He shared a story about a boy who was really sick. The boy’s father was scared his son might die, but he knew Jesus could heal his son! When he heard Jesus was nearby, he hurried to see Jesus. Jesus told the father his son would be healed. The father believed Jesus and ran home. When he got home, the father saw his son was healed! We learned when we’re scared, like MiMi Monster or like the father, we don’t have to be afraid because Jesus can heal!

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 band aid! MiMi was afraid the boo-boo on her head wouldn’t heal, but we helped her BUST her fear with a story from the Bible.
