Quest :: Week of May 12

Monthly Focus: Who has a plan for you? (God has a plan for me.)
Bible Story: Jospeh In Jail  ●  Genesis 39-40
Main Point: I can trust God’s plan even when it’s hard.
Memory Verse: “Go and make disciples of all nations.’ Matthew 28:19, NIV

We see other works of art every day that have a Maker and a plan. We pass them on the street, at work, and every Sunday they play around our feet. Are you thinking what I’m thinking? Yes, people! People are God’s works of art. He is our maker. And, He has a plan for each of us, because He made us and loves us.

In this week’s lesson, Joseph is put in jail for something he didn’t do yet continues to trust that God has a plan for him.

Joseph was thrown in jail! Can you believe it? But you know what? Joseph chose to still trust God and believe that God had a plan for him. Joseph knew he could trust God’s plan, even when it was hard. And so can we! 

Every day, we may face tough situations. God doesn’t promise us everything will always be easy, but He does promise that He has great plans to do good things for us.

MAY MEMORY VERSE
This month our Bible verse tells us God has a great plan for us!

Children can recite the verse every week in May to earn a special memory verse card. When your child receives a memory verse card, celebrate with them on learning their verse and put the card on their Quest poster.

“The plans (hold up fingers 1, 2, then 3)
of the Lord (point both fingers up)
stand firm forever.” (stand feet wide with hands on hips)
Psalm 33:11 (open hands like a book)

Practice this verse together and encourage your child to recite it to their eGroup Leader this week in Quest.

Bible Story: Jospeh Gets A Coat and Goes to Egypt  ● Genesis 37; Jeremiah 1:5
Main Point: God has a plan for me.
Memory Verse: “Go and make disciples of all nations.’ Matthew 28:19, NIV

We see other works of art every day that have a Maker and a plan. We pass them on the street, at work, and every Sunday they play around our feet. Are you thinking what I’m thinking? Yes, people! People are God’s works of art. He is our maker. And, He has a plan for each of us, because He made us and loves us.

In this week’s lesson, God is with Joseph when his older brothers get mad and send him to Egypt.

Joseph had no idea where he was going. But you know what? God knew! God was with Joseph, and He had a special plan for him. He loved Joseph very much. God has a special plan for each one of us, too!

Even when things don’t seem to go the way we want them to, we can choose to remember that God has a great plan for us. When we remember that, we can choose to have a cheerful attitude even if the situation is tough. God’s big plan for us is like a great work of art; it will be beautiful when it’s finished!

Giving the man the ability to walk was a great gift, but teaching all the people at the gate about Jesus was the best gift Peter and John could have given anyone! We can give others this great gift, too, when we take time to tell them about Jesus.

I can tell others about Jesus even when it’s hard. While we may never have it as rough as Paul and Silas had it, there will be times that it’s hard to tell other about Jesus. God is with us in every circumstance, including when we others about His Son.
