Monthly Focus: God wants me to obey!
Bible Story: Genesis 6:9-14, 17-22
Weekend Activity: Find the Matching Animals
All month your child has been learning that “God wants me to obey” through the Bible story of Noah. Noah obeyed God and built the ark and put two of every animal on it.
This week, review the Bible story with your child and reinforce the monthly focus, “God wants me to obey,” with an activity called Find the Matching Animals.
Print and cut-out two sets of the matching animal pictures. Hide one set around a room in your house. Hold up one animal picture and show it to your child and ask your child to find the matching animal picture hidden in the room. When your child brings the matching picture back say, “Noah obeyed God and built the ark and put _______ (name of animal picture) on the ark. God wants us to obey, too!”
WEEKEND RESOURCE: Animal Pictures

Lesson Overview: AH HOY PIRATES! This week in our pirate series was full of fun as Quest kids learned “The Bible Says Jesus Does Great Things!” from the story of Jesus feeding thousands of people. Children learned about the miracle of Jesus using a little boy’s lunch of fish and loaves to feed over five thousand people!
Each weekend your child attends Quest, he or she will receive a treasure chest with a special pirate riddle on the back for you to solve together. Here is this week’s riddle for you to solve with your child:
THE CROWS NEST, THE ANCHOR,
THE PLANK AND THE SAILS.
I FLOAT ON THE WATER
AND AM BUILT WITH WOOD AND NAILS.
The answer to the riddle is a BOAT! Look at the Pirates! treasure map and encourage your child to find the boat. After you and your child solve the riddle and find the boat, glue the treasure chest to the map.

Bible Story: Jonathan and His Armor Bearer :: 1 Samuel 14:1-14
Lesson Overview: During the Forecast: Chance of Rain series we have been learning about UNITY – choosing to work together for the same purpose. This weekend we focused on having unity with the authority figures in our life. We looked at 1 Samuel 14:1-14 and the unity Jonathan and his armor bearer had with each other. Jonathan’s armor bearer was willing to do anything for his prince, because Jonathan was an authority in his life. They were unified, even though it was a little dangerous.
In this weekend’s movie, Up!, an elderly widower and a young wilderness adventurer fly off to South America on a floating house. The young explorer and his elderly companion must unite together to make it through their journey.
