STORYTELLER: “Hello friends! Welcome to Quest and welcome to the Wonder! Clubhouse! This month we’ve learned it’s so important to hide God’s Word, the Bible, in our hearts. That means if we know what God says in the Bible, then He can show us the way wherever we go!”

STORYTELLER: “Now, in just a moment I’m going to ask you to jump up and down like you are jumping on a pogo stick. Here, let me show you what this looks like. Watch me!”

Jump up and down like you’re on a pogo stick.

STORYTELLER: “Ok friends, now it’s your turn! Let’s all jump up and down like we’re on a pogo stick!”

Jump up and down with the kids like you’re all on pogo sticks.

STORYTELLER: “Great job! It doesn’t matter if you’re bouncing around on a pogo stick or if you’re riding your bikes around the neighborhood with your friends, you can take God with you by knowing what the Bible says. When I say, ‘What is with you wherever you go?’ you say, ‘God’s Word is with me wherever I go!’ Let’s practice! ‘What is with you wherever you go?’”

CHILDREN AND STORYTELLER: “God’s Word is with me wherever I go!”

STORYTELLER: “Great job! God’s Word is with you wherever you go! That means no matter where you go on your bikes and trikes, you can always take God’s Word with you. Right now, we’re going to sing a song thanking God for giving us His Word. Stand to your feet and let’s sing, ‘Oh, the Bible!’”

SONG: “Oh, the Bible”

Lead children in singing, “Oh, the Bible,” with the hand motions.

SONG: “Show Me the Way”

Lead children in singing, “Show Me the Way,” with the hand motions.

STORYTELLER: “Thanks for worshipping with me, friends. Before you have a seat, tell me, ‘What is with you wherever you go?’”

CHILDREN AND STORYTELLER: “God’s Word is with me wherever I go!”

STORYTELLER: “That’s right! God’s Word is with you whoever you go! For us to take the Bible with us wherever we go, we should learn what God’s Word says. We’re going to do that now by practicing this month’s memory verse. Say this month’s memory verse with me and let’s say it very S-L-O-W-L-Y!

‘I have hidden (point to self) Your word (point up with pointer fingers) in my heart.’ (place hands over heart) Psalm 119:11a” (open hands like a book)

Repeat with children two times.

STORYTELLER: “Great job, friends! Let’s say it one more time, ‘What is with you wherever you go?’”

CHILDREN AND STORYTELLER: “God’s Word is with me wherever I go!”

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

STORYTELLER: “Wow! The Bible tells us that Jesus loves us SO MUCH and Jesus wants to be our friend forever! God loves and He sent Jesus to be our friend, and that’s something to celebrate! We know this because God’s Word tells us!”

STORYTELLER: “Remind me again, ‘What is with you wherever you go?’”

CHILDREN AND STORYTELLER: “God’s Word is with me wherever I go!”

STORYTELLER: “Yes! That’s the truth, friends. Today we learned that God sent Jesus to be a friend forever. Let’s bow our heads, close our eyes, and thank God for Jesus.”

STORYTELLER: “Dear God, thank You for sending your Son, Jesus, to be our friend. Thank you for the Bible and how it shows us how much You love us. Amen.”

STORYTELLER: “Now friends, it’s time for us to head back to our eGroups where we’re going to learn more about how God sent Jesus to be our friend.”
