STORYTELLER: “Hello, friends! Welcome back to Wonder! Clubhouse. It’s good to see you! I’m so glad you’re coming to the castle with me! This month we’re learning about our mighty and awesome God who loves us and cares so much about us, so when I ask you this very important question, ‘Who’s got it?’ I want you to say, ‘God’s got it!’ Let’s try it. ‘Who’s got it?’”

CHILDREN AND STORYTELLER: “God’s got it!”

STORYTELLER: “That’s right! God’s got it! Now it’s time for us to sing and worship God together. Stand up and sing with me, friends!

SONG: “My God is So Big”
Lead children in singing, “My God is so Big,” with the hand motions.
SONG: “Hey, I Can Pray”
Lead children in singing, “Hey, I Can Pray,” with the hand motions.
STORYTELLER: “What great singers you are! Thanks for worshipping with me, friends! You can sit down now. (Pause.) Tell me, ‘Who’s got it?’”
CHILDREN AND STORYTELLER: “God’s got it!”
STORYTELLER: “That’s right! God’s got it! Remember, our memory verse tells us how great our God is. Watch me say our memory verse with the motions first, and then you can do it with me! ‘He is the great God, (point up) the mighty (make muscle with left arm) and awesome (make muscle with right arm) God. (point up) Deuteronomy 10:17.’” (Open your hands like a book.)

STORYTELLER: “All of the boys stand up and say our memory verse with me! Are you ready?” (Pause.)
STORYTELLER AND BOYS: “‘He is the great God, (point up) the mighty (make muscle with left arm) and awesome (make muscle with right arm) God. (point up) Deuteronomy 10:17.’” (Open your hands like a book.) (Repeat several times.)
STORYTELLER: “Great job! All the boys can sit down. (Pause.) Now, all the girls stand up and say our memory verse with me! Are you ready?” (Pause.)
STORYTELLER AND GIRLS: “‘He is the great God, (point up) the mighty (make muscle with left arm) and awesome (make muscle with right arm) God. (point up) Deuteronomy 10:17.’” (Open your hands like a book.) (Repeat several times.)
STORYTELLER: “Great job! All the girls can sit down. (Pause.) Our God is awesome and He is always with us. He will always be there to help us! Remind me one more time, ‘Who’s got it?’”
CHILDREN AND STORYTELLER: “God’s got it!”

STORYTELLER: “Yes! That’s the truth, friends! I’m so glad we learned about the time when God showed Gideon the way to go and Gideon won the battle! God teaches us the way to go too, and we don’t ever have to be scared because God’s got it! Remind me again, ‘Who’s got it?’”

CHILDREN AND STORYTELLER: “God’s got it!”

STORYTELLER: “Yes! That’s the truth, friends. Let’s pray and thank God for our Bible story today. Everyone bow your heads and close your eyes.”

STORYTELLER: “Dear God, thank You for the story of the time you showed Gideon how to fight in the battle. He may have thought Your instructions were crazy, but He followed You and won the battle! Help us to listen and follow You too, because we know You’ll show us the right way. We know you’ve got this! We love You. Amen.”

STORYTELLER: “Great listening today, friends! I have some exciting news I need you to listen to … the castle is hosting a Royal Celebration and we’re all invited! Each week we’ll march one step closer to the castle. When we arrive, it will be time to celebrate! Let’s see how many more weeks until the Royal Celebration!”
