“We have the Lord our God to help us.” 2 Chronicles 32:8,NLT
Who is always with you? God is always with me.
What You Need:
Several plush friends
What You Do:
Determine where your pretend tree will be. If you have a potted plant in your home, you could also pretend that is a tree. Invite your child to gather plush friends and place them under the “tree” to teach them things.
What You Say:
Say, “Let’s find some plush friends that we can teach! We can put them over here and pretend we are under a tree like Deborah was in our story. Then, you can teach them many different things! Can you teach them how to count to five? Nice job. Let’s teach our friends how to say our ABC’s!( Continue with other things your child knows.) “In today’s story, we heard about a lady named Deborah who was the leader of all God’s people. She was their judge. Every day, she would stand under a tree. People would come and ask her what to do. Deborah knew God was with her. She trusted God to help her be wise and tell the people the right thing to do. When God is with you, He helps you be wise and do the right things, too. Who is always with you? God is always with me.”
· Scavenger Hunt: Follow the directions for where to tape the clues and have stickers ready to give at the end!
· Four Corners: Point to the different corners of the room as you direct the children to travel to each one. Once they arrive, help them identify the people in the picture and repeat the verse together. Remind the children that we can tell others that God will help them just as the verse tells us. Call the children back to the center of the room each time before they travel to the next picture!
Dear God, Thank You for the Bible. It is full of so many stories about people You have helped, like Deborah. You were always with her and helped her be a wise leader. We believe You are always with us and will help us, too. You are the best, God, and we love You. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Headline: Get Your Roar Back
Focus Scripture: Matthew 10:16-22
Main Point: In our text, Jesus is telling the disciples what to do in the face of the impending danger they were going to face. He was trying to remind them that when those persecutors come, the ought not be afraid because when the time comes to speak – God would speak for them. Isn’t that a wonderful thing? To know that when we are facing our greatest adversaries, or our scariest obstacles God will give us power in our voice. When we open our mouths – they will hear our God.
1) Why do you think it was so important for Christ to warn the disciples in this scripture?
2) Who or what were the disciples preparing to face? Who was Christ warning them about?
3) What are some things or situations that are frightening to you?
a) How can you invoke God’s voice and speak to the things that are worrying you?

Topic: Worship Works
Scripture: Matthew 4 Verse 10
Brief Synopsis: Life has a way of running its course. It is no respecter of age, race, or gender. Life will lead us to situations that are hard to combat. There will be times when our faith is tested and we are at a crossroads. Will we worship God or will we stray away? The option to stray away from the Lord can be attractive. It can lead to gratification that can be camouflaged as longevity. However, when one chooses to stray away from the Lord in tough times; it will lead to destruction. It is essential to hold on to our worship even when the odds do not seem favorable. If God can trust us to worship him in the valley, we will be eligible to worship him on the mountain. Our worship will be tested in life but it’s essential to stay with God. Because God is the greatest power, he will never be defeated.

“The time has come,” he said. “The kingdom of God is near. Repent and believe the good news!”
On that day a great persecution broke out against the church at Jerusalem, and all except the apostles were scattered throughout Judea and Samaria.
It’s Umbrella Time:
1. How can you prove whether it is or is not judgement?
2. Does God have to send trouble in order to use trouble?
3. Why does God send judgement in scripture?
4. The question is not is this the judgement of God, the question should be is there a case for the judgement of God in 2020.
As the house shifts, everyone who is connected to the house needs to be ready to shift.
Repent – Is not a negative, it is the first step to the positive.
