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: Esther Helps Her People, Esther 2-8
Main Point: I have the courage to help others!
We wrapped up our Hollywood Highlight Reel 2 series this week by watching the Halloween special, Toy Story of Terror, and watching as Jessie has to muster up her courage and save Buzz, Woody, and the rest of her friends. They faced a scary, mysterious beast roaming the halls of the Sleep Well Motel but by facing her fear and taking action, Jessie was able to rescue her friends.
We then looked at a heroine from the Bible, Esther. Esther faced down a villain and risked her life in order to save all the Jews living in Persia. Inspired by her courage, we talked about ways that we can help our friends as well. As we go through life, we will face various things that may scare us, but when we remember that God is with us and embrace His courage, we can overcome our fear and live the life God has called us to.
Don’t forget we start a brand new series next week, The Finders in: Warehouse 110. Check out the promo below for a sneak peak of what’s coming! If your child attended Motion this past weekend, they also received a DVD to be used as an invite for this next series. Talk with your child about who they could invite and then encourage them to invite their friend to church – it’s going to be a great series!
