Quest :: Week of October 7

Monthly Focus: Who can help me? (God can help me.)
Bible Story: David Protects the Sheep ● 1 Samuel 17:34-37
Main Point: God can help me anywhere.
Memory Verse: “We have the Lord our God to help us.” 2 Chronicles 32:8 (NIV)

Things are going to happen in our’ lives where they we need God’s help — times when our lives will zig one way and then zag another. But God loves us and can help us anywhere, with anything, no matter how hard it may be. He can even help us help others! This month, we’ll learn about the life of David and how even when it zigged and zagged, God was there to help him.

In this week’s lesson, David protects his sheep from a lion.

Can you imagine what it must have been like for David, alone in that field, in charge of protecting all those sheep? But was he really alone? Nope! God was there to help him. We go so many different places, and God can help us anywhere we go!

October Memory Verse
This month our Bible verse tells us God is always with us to help us!

Children can recite the verse every week in October 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.

“We have (cross arms in front of you, fists pumped)
the Lord our God. (one hand on hip, the other pointing to the sky)
to help us.” (both hands on hips)
2 Chronicles 32:8, NLT (open hands like a book)

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

We can do super things when we trust that God is always with us and do things His way. It’s not about what WE can do but about what GOD can do. Because God is always with us, we can be super!

In this week’s lesson, God is with Joshua.

Marching and blowing horns seemed like a strange way to take down a city, but Joshua was wise enough to know that God’s way was best, no matter how strange it might sound. Because God is always with us, He can make us wise, too!

What Rahab did took SO much courage. And because she showed courage, Rahab and her family were the only ones saved when the Israelites destroyed Jericho. We can have courage, too, when we remember that God is always with us!

Esther’s plan to save the Jews was risky and could have made her get in trouble with the king. But because God was with her and made her strong, Esther convinced the king not to get rid of her people! Being strong on the inside is even important than having strong muscles. We’re strong when we choose to do things God’s way. And He can help us because He is with us!

Quest :: Week of September 2

1708_FBheader_02

Monthly Focus: Who made everything wonderful? (God made everything wonderful.)
Bible Story: The Creation Story | Genesis 1:6-27; 2:7, 20-30
Main Point: God made everything wonderful.
Memory Verse: You have done great and wonderful things.” 2 Samuel 7:23 (NIrV)

God made the world and everything in it. And when we see what God has made, it reminds us what a BIG and creative God He is. But, God’s favorite creation isn’t a volcano, a supernova, or an otter—it’s people. The God who made all things good, is the God who made you.

This week we had a Creation Celebration to celebrate all the wonderful things God made!

God made everything wonderful, including people like me and YOU! Use the Meal Time Mat your child received in Quest to continue the conversation at home and remember all the wonderful things God created.
