STORYTELLER: “Hello friends! Welcome to Quest and welcome to the Wonder! Clubhouse! This month we’re headed to the great outdoors where we’re going to Camp Out and learn that no matter where we go or what we do, God is with us.”

STORYTELLER: “Since we’re in the great outdoors, I want us all to howl like wolves howling at the moon! That’s right friends! Howl with me!”

Howl with the children. You can repeat this one or two more times

STORYTELLER: “Great job, friends! I love camping in the woods and hearing all of the sounds of God’s amazing animals! It reminds me that no matter where I go or what I do, God’s got me, no matter what! When I say, ‘Who’s got it?’ you say, ‘God’s got it!’ Let’s practice! ‘Who’s got it?’”

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

STORYTELLER: “Great job! God is always with us whether we’re camping in the great outdoors or we’re playing with our friends, and that’s something to celebrate! Let’s sing songs today thanking God for always being with us. Let’s stand to our feet and sing, ‘Trustin’ N U!’”

SONG: “Trustin’ N U”

Lead children in singing, “Trustin’ N U,” with the hand motions.

SONG: “Get Up”

Lead children in singing, “Get Up,” with the hand motions.

– PART 2 –

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

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

STORYTELLER: “That’s right! God’s got it! We don’t need to worry, be afraid, or feel alone because our Bible verse for this month tells us God will be with us no matter what. Listen to the Bible verse as I say it, then, we will repeat it together with the hand motions. Listen carefully:
‘God (point both hands straight up) is with you (point out to a friend) wherever (wave your hands in a circle) you go’ (march in place) Joshua 1:9” (open hands like a book)

STORYTELLER WITH CHILDREN: “‘God (point both hands straight up) is with you (point out to a friend) wherever (wave your hands in a circle) you go’ (march in place) Joshua 1:9” (open hands like a book)
Repeat the memory verse two more times and have kids repeat it with you.

STORYTELLER: “Great job, friends! Let’s say it one more time, ‘Who’s got it?’”

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

STORYTELLER: “Yes! That’s the truth, friends! Today, we get to hear the story about three men who trusted God, even though they went through something that should have made them very afraid. Let’s check in with Ollie at the Wonder! Clubhouse to learn more.”

STORYTELLER: “Wow! God protected the three men and showed them that God will always be with them.”

STORYTELLER: “Remind me again, ‘Who’s got it?’”

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

STORYTELLER: “Yes! That’s the truth, friends. Today we discovered that God will always be with us, no matter what. Even if things get hard or we become afraid, He’ll ALWAYS be there. Let’s bow our heads, close our eyes, and thank God for promising to always be with us.”

STORYTELLER: “Dear God, thank You for always being with us. We love You. Amen.”
