Doug's note: Any opportunity to use a fanny-pack during a message... well, I'm in. Plus a game!

This message centers around how students need to thank and praise God, regardless of the season of life they are in. It gleans support from the life of David and the Psalms he wrote in both good times and bad...

Each section of the message has an item that you can store in the fanny pack to emphasize a point or illustration in the concepts of thanking God when life is awesome AND when you're broken and hurting - in all circumstances,

Note: This message includes slides to teach without the fanny pack object lesson enhancements as well. There is also a fun, Thanksgiving-themed stage game included.

This Resource Includes:
• Concept instructions (Word file)
• Complete teaching manuscript (Word file)
• Small group guide (Word file)
• Complete graphics folder (jpeg files)
• Themed, active stage game, "Turkey Legs" (Word file)

Note from the Author

If it's possible where you live, it would be hysterical to give out hot turkey legs as the game prize.

Free Ebook by Doug Fields

There are plenty of people who are grateful that you do what you do. Your students are, their families are, and your church is, even though they may not say it often enough. I want to say thanks on behalf of them, and model the way we need to be saying thanks to the leaders that serve alongside us—in ten different ways—through this ebook.

Thank YOU!
