STORYTELLER: “Hello friends! Welcome to Quest and welcome to the Wonder! Clubhouse! This month we’re learning all about how YOU are a work of art because God made you and He’s got plan for you! Now I’m sure you all love art and creating amazing things, but I want to hear right now whether you like drawing things with crayons, or painting things with paint. On the count of three either yell out CRAYONS or PAINT. Think about it for a second — which one do you like better? Ok, on the count of three, yell it out! One, two, three!

Give children a moment to respond.

STORYTELLER: “Great job! Now I’m sure that you’ve got a plan for things that you draw or paint, and I’m here to tell you that God has plan for you, because you’re HIS work of art! Now friends, whenever I say, ‘Who has a plan for you?’ You’ll say, ‘God has a plan for me!’ Let’s try that now! ‘Who has a plan for you?’”

CHILDREN AND STORYTELLER: “God has a plan for me!”

STORYTELLER: “Great job! God has a big plan for all of us and this month we’re taking a very close look at a person in the Bible named Joseph who God used to do big things! We’ll see that God had a plan for Joseph, just like He’s got a plan for us, and that’s something we can all celebrate together. Friends, let’s all stand to our feet and sing, ‘Plan for Me!’”

SONG: “Plan For Me”

Lead children in singing, “Plan For Me,” with the hand motions.

SONG: “Take Care of Me”

Lead children in singing, “Take Care of Me,” with the hand motions.

STORYTELLER: “Thanks for worshipping with me, friends. Before you have a seat, tell me, ‘Who has a plan for you?’”

CHILDREN AND STORYTELLER: “God has a plan for me!”

STORYTELLER: “That’s right! God’s got a plan for us and the Bible says that God’s plan’s are forever so it doesn’t matter how old we get, where we go, or what we’ve done. God will always find a way to bring us back into His plan. Let’s take a look at what the Bible says. I’ll say the Bible verse once, then we’ll all say it together a few times. Listen carefully:

‘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)

STORYTELLER, THEN STORYTELLER WITH CHILDREN: “‘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)

Repeat the memory verse with the children two more times.

STORYTELLER: “Great job, friends! Let’s say it one more time, ‘Who has a plan for you?’”

CHILDREN AND STORYTELLER: “God has a plan for me!”

STORYTELLER: “Yes! That’s the truth, friends! Now let’s check in with Ollie at Wonder! Clubhouse to learn more.”

STORYTELLER: “Wow! Even when things get hard like they did for Joseph, it’s so important to know that God still has a plan for us! I can’t wait to see how God will continue to use Joseph in next week’s Bible story!”

STORYTELLER: “Remind me again, ‘Who has a plan for you?’”

CHILDREN AND STORYTELLER: “God has a plan for me!”

STORYTELLER: “Yes! That’s the truth, friends. Today we learned that we’re ALL works of art and just like any good painter or artist, God’s got a plan for our lives. Let’s bow our heads, close our eyes, and thank God for having a plan for us.”

STORYTELLER: “Dear God, thank You for having a plan for our lives, just like you had a plan for Joseph’s. We learned that sometimes things may be hard, but you’ll always be there with us. We love you. Amen.”

STORYTELLER: “Now friends, it’s time for us to head back to our eGroups where we’re going to learn more about what it means we we say God has a plan for us.
