Bible Story: Jacob’s Dream | Genesis 28:10-22
Main Point: I Will Be Thankful!
Memory Verse: “Whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.” 1 Corinthians 10:31 (NIV)
Not only did Fernando, Tuttle Turtle, and Abee Queen answer questions and earn points while learning lessons from the life of Jacob, they also heard a Bible story and figured out the answer to Guy Handsome’s big question!
This weekend’s BIG QUESTION was:
IS IT RIGHT TO BE THANKFUL?
There is no better way to start off a game show than by receiving free points! Guy Handsome started off the game by giving each contestant ten FREE points! However, the contestants were not thankful for the points and even asked for more! During the physical challenge segment of the show, contestants were to collect candy in their buckets and say “thank you” after collecting each piece of candy. Contestants loved getting the candy, but no one said thank you.
Guy Handsome wanted the contestants to learn the answer to his big question so he shared a Bible story about a man named Jacob and how he was thankful to God! Jacob had a dream where God promised Jacob many things, including land and lots of family. Jacob was so thankful for all God had done he showed God he was thankful by building an altar to worship God and told God ‘thank you!’ From our Bible story we learned “I Will Be Thankful!” and the answer to the BIG QUESTION: yes, we should be thankful!
During The Big Question, children will be learning a new memory verse about how they can glorify God in everything they do! We began teaching children 1 Corinthians 10:31 this past weekend in Quest. Work with your child at home during dinner time or bed time to recite this verse. Children can recite it in Quest on the weekend of April 12/13 for a prize!
Below are the hand motions we are using each weekend to teach the children 1 Corinthians 10:31. Hand motions give children a visual cue to help remember the words.
Whatever you do, (point out)
do it all (circle hands over head)
for the glory of God. (point up)
