Lesson Overview

It was another beautiful day high up in the sky with Sunny the Cloud! We ran into our friend Purple Parrot flying circles around the Two by Two cruise ship. Purple Parrot told us it was LOVE WEEK and Purple Parrot was flying laps in the sky to give love to Water Missions International!

 
Down on the Two by Two cruise ship, Sydney, Shelby, Aunt Jessie and all the travelers were walking around the deck of the ship for a Water Walk to give love to an organization called Water Missions International. Water Missions has a goal to get clean water for families who don’t have access to clean water. After learning about Water Missions, Quest had it’s own walk for water to earn money so people could have clean drinking water!

God tells us to share what we have with one another, just like Jesus did when he used a small boy’s lunch to feed 5,000 people. Jesus showed love to the people and fed them when they were hungry! As we served the families being helped by Water Missions, we gave love by helping people get clean drinking water. We learned “Love Gives!” by serving during Love Week and hearing our Bible story about Jesus feeding the 5,000!

Memory Verse

eKidz wants to partner with parents as children learn God’s Word and we want to help make it easy for you to connect with your child about the Bible at home. Learning the memory verse we have during each series is a great way to connect spiritually with your child! This week at home, review our memory verse 1 John 5:3a with your child using the hand motions below. Try singing it together, turning it into a funny song, or downloading the memory verse background for your smartphone or computer!

This is love (cross arms over chest)
for God: (point up)
to keep (point to head)
his commands. (two thumbs up)
1 John 5:3a (NIV)

Children will have the opportunity to say the memory verse every weekend of the series for a Sunny pop!


#SelfieSwitch – Episode 2 #Motion

Series Memory Verse: Psalm 139:14, “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.”

Bible Story: God Gives the Israelites Good Water, Exodus 15:22-25

Main Point: God Made Me to Give

We kept #SelfieSwitch going with a very special weekend. The Motion kids got to participate in Love Week. For Motion’s very first service project, they participated in a Walk for Water with Water Missions International. To learn a little more about it, Motion kids saw this video:

After walking and helping raise money for Water Missions International, we joined back up with Mitch and Ollie to see how they’re doing after they switched bodies last week in the first episode of #SelfieSwitch. Check out Episode 2:


Sunny The Cloud | Week 6 #Quest

Bible Story: Noah Waited | Genesis 8:2-13
Main Point: I Will Be Patient!
Memory Verse: “This is love for God: to keep his commands.” 1 John 5:3a (NIV)

eKidz_Quest_STCL_MainGraphicLesson Overview

We saw our friend Sunny the Cloud high up in the sky and can you guess which Quest animal we saw floating around up in the sky? Not Black Bear, or Blue Beaver, or White Warthog, but Yellow Yak! Sunny and Yellow Yak saw the Two By Two cruise ship passing by, so we looked down on the cruise ship deck to see how Sydney and Shelby were enjoying their cruise vacation!

 
When we looked down we saw our friends Sydney and Shelby waiting with Aunt Jessie. The Two By Two had docked at a new city and the crew was preparing so everyone could get off the cruise ship and explore the city. But First Mate Shelley let everyone know the ramp was broken and no one could get off the ship to explore the city until it was fixed. Aunt Jessie told Sydney and Shelby to be patient to get off the ship, but Shelby wanted to try lots of different ways to get off the boat anyways! After Sydney suggested they use a kite to fly off the boat, Aunt Jessie decided it was time for Sydney and Shelby to see the daily Bible story in the cruise ship theater.

During the Bible story of the day, we heard about Noah being on a boat for 150 nights with his family and all kinds of animals. After God made it rain to flood the earth during this time, the water began to dry up! But Noah and his family still had to wait until all the water was completely dry to get off the boat. It was hard for them to wait for such a long time, but they knew being patient was the right thing to do. Alongside Sydney and Shelby, Quest children learned “I Will Be Patient!” from our Bible story.

Memory Verse

We are so proud of the children who have memorized the verse 1 John 5:3a. But, we are excited for the many more who are continuing to work hard to learn God’s Word! Try reviewing the verse with your child during dinnertime using the hand motions below:

This is love (cross arms over chest)

#SelfieSwitch – Episode 1 #Motion + @eKidz Love Week Promotion!

eKidz_Motion_SSW-SeriesGraphic

Series Memory Verse: Psalm 139:14, “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.”

Bible Story: Moses Encourages God’s People, Exodus 14:8-14, 21-29

Main Point: God Made Me to Encourage

We began a brand new series this weekend called #SelfieSwitch. We met Ollie, Mitch, and Violet as they got started on a group science project for summer school. Something very curious happens as they do, check it out below!

You’ll have to come back next week to see how Ollie and Mitch handle being switched! Violet showed us how God made us to encourage one another, rather than giving in to negative talk. Moses set a great example for us in the Bible, as he challenged the Israelites to stop their negative talk and put their trust in God. In your family this week, begin to pay attention to how much negative talk exists in your day to day life and take steps to transform that to encouragement.

Next week starts a very exciting week in the life of our church – Love Week 2014! One of our eKidz regulars helped us make a video to tell you why we’re so excited about Love Week. See for yourself!

We hope to see you back next week to take part in Love Week as we serve our neighbors near and far!
