Lesson Overview

Join our team of FearBusters who use truth from God’s Word to help them know what to do when they are scared. With the help of Beaker and FearBuster agent Lou True, we’ll learn how to BUST our fears and even help our monster friends bust their fears, too!

 
This weekend, our friend BeBo Monster was afraid during bedtime. When he closed his eyes, it got really dark and the dark made him really scared. Agent Lou True helped BeBo by reading a story from God’s Word, the Bible! He read about a time when Jesus taught his friends, the disciples, how to pray. Jesus taught his friends we can pray to God and ask Him for what we need. After reading the Bible story, BeBo Monster decided to pray to God and ask for help to not be scared of the dark!

FearBusted Box
To help our FearBuster friends bust their fears, Quest children received a FearBusted Box to collect truths from God’s word to know what to do when they are scared. Each weekend children will collect another truth to put in their FearBusted Box!

In this week’s truth bag was a finger light! Use the truth card to start a discussion with your child about their fears and to review the Bible story and main point.

Truth Card

Ask, ’’What do you do when you feel scared?”

Memory Verse
Our memory verse during FearBusters teaches us that God can free us from all our fears.

I prayed (pretend to pray)
to the Lord (point up),
and He answered me. (cup hand to ear)
He freed me (wave arms and smile)
from all my fears. (make scared face)
Psalm 34:4 (hold up 4 fingers)

Each weekend children can recite the memory verse for a ROAR-some monster prize. Start working with your child to learn this verse so they can remember God helps us BUST our fears!


Hollywood Highlight Reel 2 – Week 1 #Motion

eKidz_Motion_HHRE2_MainGraphic

Series Memory Verse: Psalm 56:3-4a, “When I am afraid, I put my trust in you. In God, whose word I praise- in God I trust and am not afraid.”
Bible Story: Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego – Daniel 3
Main Point: I have the courage to stand out!

This week we started a brand new series called Hollywood Highlight Reel 2! During this series, we’ll be watching clips from popular movies, identifying themes from them, and digging into the Bible to see how God would have us live. Throughout the series, we’ll be looking for Reel Courage – facing your fear and doing what’s right.

Our first movie was The Lego Movie! In it, we saw how Emmett was afraid to stand out from the rest of Lego City but eventually, found the courage to. We talked about how sometimes it’s difficult for us to be willing to stand out from the crowd in order to stand for what’s right, so we turned to the Bible and the story of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. These three guys were so committed to doing what’s right, not only did they stand out from the crowd, they faced a fiery furnace for doing it.

As a family this week, watch The Lego Movie, read Daniel 3, and talk about opportunities your child can have to stand up for what’s right. Share challenges we face as adults to stand up for what’s right as well. Pray for God’s strength and reel courage to face your fears and do what’s right.


The Animal Adventurers | Week 6 #Quest

 
Bible Story: Luke 15:11-24 | The Prodigal Son
Main Point: Teammates Celebrate!
Memory Verse: “Two people are better than one. They can help each other in everything they do.” Ecclesiastes 4:9 (NIrV)

Lesson Overview
Quest children joined the Animal Adventurers Troop 49 on one more adventure in the great outdoors this past weekend! Troop Master Mickey challenged Troop 49 to earn their sixth and final Animal adventurer badge, the Purple Parrot badge.

After hearing from Troop Master Mickey, we joined Troop 49 their adventure to climb The Great Big Mountain!

Troop 49 worked together as a team to hike to the top of The Great Big Mountain and everyone earned the Purple Parrot badge! Earning the Purple Parrot Badge was tough, and not many troops had earned it before, but through Troop Master Mickey’s training and from the Bible story, Troop 49 was able to celebrate each other during the hike to earn their badge!

Troop 49 Animal Adventurer Badges

During The Animal Adventurers series, Quest children became part of Troop 49! Each week children attended Quest, they earned a different Quest Animal Adventurer badge. This weekend children earned the sixth and final Animal Adventurer badge – the Purple Parrot badge – by learning how to be great teammates by working together to climb to the top of The Great Big Mountain. We learned we should celebrate each other just like the father celebrated the returning of his son in our Bible story!

Beats – Episode 6 #Motion

BEATS_LG_UNI_Graphic

Bible Story: Jesus and Zacchaeus, Luke 19:1-10

Beat of the Week: “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.” Matthew 5:8

We wrapped up our Beats series by hearing God’s promise to reveal Himself to those whose heart is pure. We heard from Kent, a very talented artist who understands what it takes to pursue God. Check it out:

God’s standard is simple: purity. Complete perfection. None of us, on our own, could ever live up to that standard. But that’s why God sent Jesus. Through His sacrifice, we can be purified, and that’s when our relationship with God is restored.

Use this week as an opportunity to talk with your child about where they stand with God. Let them ask questions and genuinely embrace those questions. Reach out to your eKidz or Elevation Church staff if we can do anything to help your family have these conversations.

Don’t forget – next week, if your Motion child can say one of the Bible verses from the Beatitudes, he or she will earn an additional prize!


The Animal Adventurers | Week 5 #Quest

 
Bible Story: Acts 6:1-7 | Food for Widows
Main Point: Teammates Help!
Memory Verse: “Two people are better than one. They can help each other in everything they do.” Ecclesiastes 4:9 (NIrV)

Lesson Overview
Troop 49 has been learning to work together as a team under Troop Master Mickey’s instruction. We’ve joined Troop 49 the past few weeks in the great outdoors to earn four Animal Adventurer badges, and this weekend Troop Master Mickey challenged us and Troop 49 to earn the Blue Beaver badge.

After Troop Master Mickey told Troop 49 their mission, children joined the troop to make a tent. See if Troop 49 was able to help each other on this adventure!

Because all members of Troop 49 helped each other build a tent, the troop earned the Blue Beaver badge. Through Troop Master Mickey’s training and a story in the Bible, Troop 49 learned that “Teammates Help!” and working together as a team is better than working alone!

Troop 49 Animal Adventurer Badges

During The Animal Adventurers series, Quest children will become part of Troop 49! Each week children attend Quest, they will earn a different Quest Animal Adventurer badge. This weekend children earned the fifth Animal Adventurer badge – the Blue Beaver badge - by learning how to be great teammates by working together to build a tent. We learned we should help each other just like the disciples helped take care of widows in our Bible story!
