Pit Stop – Week 5 #Motion

031016_eKidz_Motion_PSTO_NoTireMarks

Series Memory Verse: 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, “Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
Main Point: Stop to celebrate.
Bible Story: Israelite Feast Days, Exodus 23:14-19

Our friend Ben took his last visit to Ganassi Racing this week. Check out episode five of Pit Stop here:

Whether it’s as small as incremental progress or as huge as a Nascar Sprint Cup Series victory, the Ganassi Racing team takes time to celebrate. It’s an important part of encouraging each other, staying motivated, and continuing to improve.

It’s the same in our lives. We read in Exodus all the days that God had His people set aside to celebrate different things. God knows celebration is important in our lives for maintaining gratitude and He instituted it from the beginning. There are certain celebrations already established in our culture, and you as a family may have other traditions and celebrations. Talk through these and other opportunities you could take to celebrate accomplishments and all that God has done for you.

Speaking of celebration, in eKidz this weekend, we were celebrating the release of our second worship album, One in a Million! Check it out here: elevationchurchkids.com

Pit Stop – Week 4 #Motion

031016_eKidz_Motion_PSTO_NoTireMarks

Series Memory Verse: 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, “Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
Main Point: Stop to thank God.
Bible Story: Jesus Heals 10 Lepers, Luke 17:11-19

In another fast-paced episode of Pit Stop, we got to see how pit crews use film review to continue to improve their performance. Check it out!

Pit crews watch film of their performance to review how they did and look for ways to improve. Similarly, we need to look back over the “film” of our lives and review in our heads all the things we have to be thankful for. God has done a lot for us and if it’s not immediately obvious to us, we need to take time to review all He’s done. Just like the one leper in our Bible story this week went back to thank Jesus for healing him, it’s important that we thank God too.

Take time this week as a family to do some “film review,” reflecting over what God’s done in and through you. Take time to thank God for His faithfulness and goodness. 


Wonder! Clubhouse: My Neighborhood – Week 3 #Quest

Bible Story: Peter and John |  Acts 3:1-16
Main Point: I can love God and people with what I have!
Memory Verse: Love the Lord your God with all your heart. Love your neighbor as yourself. Matthew 22:37-39

Lesson Overview
The early church wasn’t about a building, but about a group of people meeting together to worship and share life with one another. We can be just like the early church by sharing, helping each other and worshiping God together with our neighbors!

We heard a story from Justin the mailman, one of our neighbors! He told us a Bible story about a hurt man who didn’t have anything. One day, Peter and John were walking past the man when he asked them for money. Peter said he didn’t have any money, but he had Jesus. Peter and John loved God and loved people, and they believed Jesus would heal the man to walk. So they told him to get up and walk – and he did! Just like Peter and John, we can love God and love people by giving what we have!

My Neighborhood
Each weekend children visit Quest during the month of April they can collect main point cars to add to their My Neighborhood poster. These cars will help remind them to show love to God and others. Children can collect six cars and bring their poster back to Quest to receive a special prize.

Memory Verse – Matthew 4:19
Join us in helping your child learn our memory verse, Matthew 22:37-39. Children can recite this verse every week throughout the series to earn bonus cars for their My Neighborhood poster.

Love (hug self)
the Lord your God (point up)
with all your heart. (place both hands over heart)
Love (hug self)
your neighbor (point out)
as yourself. (thumbs to chest)
Matthew 22:37-39 (open hands like a book)

Knowing this verse helps children remember that we should follow Jesus. Help your child practice this verse at home. Then ask them to Remember, Think, and Follow to review what we learned this weekend.

1 REMEMBER: Why didn’t Peter and John give the man the money he asked for? (They didn’t have any money.)
2 THINK: Peter and John used what they had. What did they give the man instead? (The ability to walk.)
3 FOLLOW: How can we follow their example? (We can show love to God and each other with what we already have!)


Pit Stop – Week 3 #Motion

031016_eKidz_Motion_PSTO_NoTireMarks

Series Memory Verse: 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, “Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
Main Point: Stop to thank others.
Bible Story: One Body, Many Parts, 1 Thessalonians 5:18, 1 Corinthians 12:12-21

As we entered our third week of Pit Stop, we took another visit to the Ganassi Racing Shop to learn more about the world of Nascar. Check it out:

In this episode, we learned more about the different roles on the pit crew. Just like there are many different team members that make up the pit crew, we have a lot of people in our lives that help us in different ways. Many of them could even be considered behind the scenes – we may not realize all that they do in our lives.

It’s important that we not only recognize those people but also express gratitude for them. Just like a pit crew can’t operate without all the different members contributing, our lives would not be the same without all the many people who help. This week, take time as a family to think about the people in your lives who you need to appreciate and make a plan of action to do so.
