Lesson Overview
During Wonder! Clubhouse: All Aboard we’re heading to Creation Station to make discoveries and learn about the world around us and that God made everything – the sun, moon, stars, planets, clouds, rain, oceans, animals, flowers, you, me … everything!

On day five God created fish and birds. Encourage your child to repeat with you what we learned about this weekend:

God made (point up)
fish (put hands together and move forward)
and birds! (flap arms)

Go outside and point out the birds flying in the sky and remind your child to thank God for giving us the birds to fly in the sky. Not only can we praise God for creating birds and fish, but we can praise Him for creating everything in the world!

All Aboard
Each weekend children visit Quest during this eight week series they can collect main point train cars to add to their All Aboard poster. These train cars will help remind them of all the things God created. Children can collect six train cars and bring their poster back to Quest to receive a special prize.

Memory Verse – Psalm 89:11
Join us in helping your child learn our memory verse, Psalm 89:11. Children can recite this verse every week during the series to earn bonus train cars to put on their All Aboard poster.

You (point up)
made (fist on top of fist)
the world (form a circle with arms over head)
and everything in it. (spread arms wide)
Genesis 89:11 (open hands like a book)

Knowing this verse helps children remember to thank God for what He created! Help your child practice this verse. Then ask them to Remember, Think, and Follow to review what we learned this weekend.

1 REMEMBER: What did God created in today’s Bible story? (fish and birds)
2 THINK: Did God create fish and birds on day three or day five? (five)
3 FOLLOW: What will you thank God for today that He created on day five? (fish and birds)


Finders V – Week 1 #Motion

052516_eKidz_Motion_FIND5 (1)

Series Memory Verse: Proverbs 3:5-6, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.”
Main Point: My words are my choice.
Bible Story: Joseph’s Dreams, Genesis 37:1-11

This week we kicked off the latest installment of The Finders, as we began Finders V! Check out the first episode:

During this whole series, we’ll be learning about choices and studying the life of Joseph from the Bible to see the choices he made. This week, we talked about how our words are our choice. Joseph had some crazy dreams and, perhaps unwisely, chose to share those dreams with his family. His choice to tell them only worsened their feelings toward him and caused his father to reprimand him.

Though we’ll see a lot of great choices from Joseph throughout the rest of his story, he didn’t start off so strong here. Talk with your family about your words, remind each other of how powerful they are, and pray for the wisdom and courage to make wise choices with your words this coming week.

Make sure to come back next week to see the next episode of Finders V! And if you have missed any of our past Finders series, you can catch up on them through these links:

The Finders V – Memory Verse Backgrounds #Motion

052516_eKidz_Motion_FIND5 (1)

We are all faced with choices … chocolate ice cream or vanilla, tennis shoes or flip flops, or to watch a movie or play a video game. Not all choices are that easy, though, and neither is knowing how to make the right choice.

But God is always there to help us and so is the Bible. The Bible is full of truths which can help us make wise choices. Proverbs 3:5-6 tells us God will help us make right choices when we trust Him and live according to His Word:

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.

During Finders V our favorite mystery solving friends, The Finders, are still on the hunt for their nemesis, Goldman, but they’re about to encounter a new wrinkle. One of their members is going to be faced with a series of nearly impossible choices – choices that can change everything.

Use the smart phone or computer memory verse backgrounds and join us in helping your family learn Proverbs 3:5-6 and know who’s voice to listen to when faced with choices


The Force of Kindness – Week 5 #Motion

TFOK Main Slide

Series Memory Verse: Luke 6:31, “Do to others as you would have them to do to you.”
Virtue: Kindness: Showing others they are valuable by how you treat them.
Main Point: Be kind to people by serving them.
Bible Story: Jesus Forgives and Heals a Paralyzed Man, Luke 5:17-26

In our final week of The Force of Kindness, we learned how we can be kind by serving others. We watched an episode in Clone Wars where some younglings had to serve each other in order to become Jedis and have the ability to use the force.

This was also the perfect lesson to learn as our church kicked off Love Week 2016! Put this lesson into practice as a family by getting out and serving at one of the many opportunities available. For more information, visit: http://elevationoutreach.com/love-week/

And don’t forget that next week we start Finders V! Check out the promo here: 


eKidz and LOVE Week 2016

LOVE WEEK kicks off at every Elevation location this weekend with on-campus outreach events for the whole family. Following the Worship Experience, pick-up your child from eKidz, head to the Love Week event area, and start serving together!

Go to LoveWeek2016.com and use the filter option to sign up for additional FAMILY-FRIENDLY events throughout the week.

In eKidz this past month, we’ve been singing a new song called Generation For You, a song all about kindness and serving. Check out the music video below. It shows a group of students who chose to live out this idea of being kind and serving those who are often overlooked when they spent time at a special needs facility.

Download the video and make it your family’s theme song for LOVE WEEK 2016!
