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.

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.
