Yesterday, I shared one of the lessons from a recent snow camp I attended based on the movie, Frozen.   Today’s post features another Frozen themed lesson from that flurry filled camp.    The complete script is below and you can find the power point presentation I used at the bottom of the post.

Bible Lessons from Frozen

Lesson #2 Don’t Hide It

Welcome back everyone!  I hope you have been having fun playing in the snow!

If you remember this morning, we talked about – what?

Very good.  Being a fixer-upper.  We know that Kristoff was a bit of a fixer upper, Anna didn’t make good choices when it came to her boyfriend and Elsa well, she froze everything.

In fact, everyone is a bit of a fixer upper.

Fixer Upper

We all make mistakes and bad choices sometimes.  That’s the bad news.  But the good new is — what?

God Loves

That’s right!  God Loves fixing fixer uppers.  Tonight, we’re going to talk about what happens when we try to hide those mistakes.

Of course, there was someone in the movie who was hiding something.  Right?

Children's Ministry Lessons from Frozen

Who was that?

Yes, Elsa tries her entire life to hide her secret frozen powers.  It causes her great pain and it causes her sister, Anna, great pain.

Bible Lessons from Frozen

Of course, Elsa can’t keep her secret forever.  When she gets upset with Anna at the party, everyone finds out about Elsa’s ice powers.

Ice Powers

Even though Elsa tries her very best to hide things, she couldn’t do it.  When her secret was revealed, she took off running.  As you probably know, Anna goes after her sister and eventually finds her in the ice castle.   Elsa tries to send her away, but Anna assures her that they can repair their relationship now that Elsa doesn’t have to hide her secret.   Anna sings a song to Elsa, and I love this part:

You don’t have to keep your distance anymore
‘Cause for the first time in forever
I finally understand
For the first time in forever
We can fix this hand in hand
We can head down this mountain together
You don’t have to live in fear
‘Cause for the first time in forever,
I will be right here

Let’s take a look at the clip:

Unfortunately, Elsa doesn’t accept Anna’s invitation, but Anna is onto something here.  She understands something very important about relationships.   She knew that the best way to work through this problem was to DO IT TOGETHER.

That’s God’s plan for you and I too.  We all have tough stuff in our lives.  Maybe a mistake we keep making, maybe a sad situation you don’t know how to deal with.

God's Plan

God’s plan is for us to work through things together.

1 Thesselonians 5:11 tells us…

Thessalonians

What do you think the word encourage means?

Encourage actually means to give someone courage.  Isn’t that cool? Sometimes we do need a little courage. When we’re nervous, when we’re trying something new, when we’re afraid.  What a great way to help someone!  By giving them courage.

James 5:16 says…

James 2

Another way for us to fix things together is to get sin out of our lives by confessing it and for praying for one another.

Elsa tried to hide her powers her powers.  She doesn’t tell Anna the truth and it hurt their relationship.   They weren’t able to help each other, because Elsa was hiding something.

Maybe you’ve experience something like this.  Maybe you did something wrong or disobeyed your parents.  You didn’t want them to know, so you lied to them or maybe tried to hide the mistake.

Can anyone relate? (Maybe take an example)

What does that do to your relationship?

It hurts it.

You feel guilt and just like that door between Elsa and Anna, it kind of puts a wall up between you and your mom and dad.

Frozen Bible Lessons

It’s not a real wall, but it kind of feels like that.

Did you know the Bible has a solution for us? The Bible tells us that the Truth will set you free.

John 8

God wants us to work through things together, but it only works if we tell the truth.

Even Genie from Aladdin knows it’s best to tell the truth!

Maybe, like Elsa, you’ve got something you’re hiding.  Maybe you’re angry at a friend and you don’t know what to do about it.

God wants us to work through things together, but it only works if we tell the truth.

Truth

Maybe your parents have been fighting a lot, but you don’t want anyone to know.

God wants us to work through things together, but it only works if we tell the truth.

Maybe you’re really afraid of something and you know it’s kind of silly (maybe give a personal example), so when your leader at church asks if there is anything you’d like to pray about, you just shake your head because you don’t want the other kids to laugh.

God wants us to fix things together.

Say that to your neighbor.

God wants us to fix things together, but that only works when we tell the truth.

Truth

Maybe you’re having a really hard time being nice to your brother or sister, but you don’t want to tell anyone that.  Maybe you’d like to be nicer, but you’re not sure where to start.

God wants us to fix things together, but that only works when we tell the truth.

Don’t be like Elsa.  If you’re struggling with something…if you’re having a hard time with something…if something bad is happening in your life.

Don’t hide it.

Let’s fix it together.

The truth will set you free.

We’re going to play a song now and if there’s something you need some help fixing, I invite you to come up so we can talk and pray about it.
