Quest :: Week of May 6

Monthly Focus: Who’s got it? (God’s got it!)
Bible Story: Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego | Daniel 3:10-28
Main Point: God is always with me.
Memory Verse: “He is the great God, the mighty and awesome God.” Deuteronomy 10:17 (NLT)

It’s time to come to the castle to hear stories of the King! This month, we’ll explore the stories of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, Hagar, Gideon, and Daniel. As we learn about the amazing things God did for each of these Bible heroes, we’ll see that God is always with us and He has everything under control. God’s got it!

In this week’s lesson, God is with Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego and rescues them from a blazing furnace.


God is always with him, no matter what! Whatever situations we face, we can trust God has it under control.
