Overcoming Fear of Scary Things with God’s Help


During this series, we will be talking a great deal about the common things that kids are afraid of, and why they shouldn’t be afraid and how God can use those situations for good. God is always there with us when we are afraid so we can help children understand how to deal with being scared.

Memory Verse:

“LORD is my light and my salvation - whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life-- of whom shall I be afraid?” Psalm 27:1

Lesson Overview

The Monsters Out There – Sometimes the world can be a scary place. Between school and the dentist and making new friends, there’s a lot out there that we might be afraid of. David Battles Goliath, 1 Samuel 17

The Monsters In Here – Sometimes the scariest things are on the inside. We might be afraid of trying new things and failing, afraid that we’re not smart enough or good enough. Saul Fears Losing His Kingship, 1 Samuel 18

The Monsters Up Ahead – Sometimes we have to face the biggest fear of all: The Unknown. We may not know what the future holds, but we can be confident that God has got our backs. David Spares Saul’s Life, 1 Samuel 24

Bigger Than the Monsters – Our God is bigger than all of the Monsters. When we really know that in our hearts, we start to look at Him with a special awe and reverence. The Bible calls that “the fear of the Lord.” David Becomes King of Israel, 2 Samuel 5, Psalm 27:1-3

Then Stay Tuned for…SKI RESORT

Life has its ups and downs, its highs and lows. But instead of looking at that as a bad thing we can look at it as an adventure, like a ski experience through the alpine. With Jesus by our side, we can navigate through whatever we encounter out on the slopes.

Ski Lift – The ski lift transports skiers from the bottom of the mountain to the beautiful slopes above. Kids will learn that no matter how low we get, Jesus is able to lift us up to beautiful heights. Mark 9:14-27, Jesus Heals A Boy

Bunny Slope – The bunny slope is an easy course for first time skiers. Kids will learn that following Jesus isn't complicated; it's as easy as 1-2. Matthew 22:34-40, The Greatest Commandment

Slalom – The slalom is a more complicated course that only the more advanced skiers can follow. Kids will learn that even when others turn away from Jesus, we can trust and follow him. John 6:35-69, Jesus The Bread Of Life

Ski Lodge – At the end of a long day on the slopes, it's nice to get back to the ski lodge and rest by the fire. Kids will learn that Jesus loves us and offers peace and rest when we grow weary. Matthew 11:25-30, Rest For The Weary
