Bible Story: Jonah | Jonah 1:1-3:10
Main Point: I should go God’s way.
Memory Verse: “Trust the Lord with all your heart.” Proverbs 3:5, NCV
This month, the true stories of Noah, Jonah and Naaman will help us get to know God a little better and see that He is 100% worthy of our trust. We don’t have to hold back. We can let go and DIVE IN! Because no matter what is happening around us, we can always trust God.
In this week’s lesson Jonah learned the hard way that God’s way is best.
Jonah knew he had made a bad choice. He was sitting inside the big fish and told God how sorry he was for not trusting Him and not going His way. God forgave Jonah and the big fish SPIT Jonah out! Jonah learned to always trust God and we can trust Him, too!
When God tells us to do something or to act a certain way, it’s because He loves us and knows what is good for us. Because we know we can trust God, we can trust His way is always best!”
Each weekend children visit Wonder! Clubhouse they get collectible cards to add to their poster. Once your child collects six cards and brings their poster back to Quest they can receive a special prize! Make sure your child keeps their poster in a place they can see it every day to help them remember what we are learning in Quest and to spend time with Jesus.
Join us in helping your child learning Proverbs 3:5 (NCV)! Children can recite the verse every week in September to earn a special Memory Verse take home to put on their poster.
Trust the Lord (point up)
with all (stretch arms wide)
your heart. (hands over heart)
Proverbs 3:5, NCV (open hands like a book)
Knowing this verse helps children remember how we can always trust God completely. Practice this verse with your child so they can recite it to their eGroup Leader this weekend in Quest!
