Motion Presents: Superbook – Week 1 #Motion

011516_eKidz_Motion_SUPE_MainGraphic

Series Memory Verse: The Ten Commandments, Exodus 20 (NIV)
Week Focus: Commandments 1-4

This week we began a three week series called Motion Presents: Superbook, where we’re watching Chris, Joy, and Gizmo travel back in time and experience the Israelites receiving the commandments from God.

The Israelites had come out of slavery where they had everything dictated to them but now that they were free, they weren’t sure how to live. God provided the commandments to protect the Israelites, guide them, and because He knew His way of living was the most rewarding for them.

Even if we know that in our minds, it can be challenging at times to maintain that perspective. Talk with your family about what rules you have in place and which ones are most challenging. Pray for the heart of David, who in Psalm 119 proclaims his love for God’s laws. And begin memorizing the ten commandments with your child.

Jesus loves everyone! Since Jesus loves everyone, we should love everyone, too! Our Bible verse during Buckets of Love helps remind us to love everyone. It says:

Love each other (hug self)
as I (point up)
have loved you. (point out)
John 15:12 (open hands like a book)

Join us in helping your child learn John 15:12. Children can recite this verse each weekend to receive an additional heart for their Buckets of Love poster! Use the phone or computer memory verse backgrounds to help your family learn John 15:12.


The Finders: Fools Gold – Week 8 #Motion

finders4

Series Memory Verse: Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves. Philippians 2:3 (NIV)
Main Point: I can put others first by making things right.
Bible Story: Jacob and Esau Reconcile, Genesis 33:1-11

This was it! The last week of Finders 4: Fool’s Gold! If you missed episode 7, make sure to check it out here:

And now, the grand finale to the series.

Gasp! Goldman outwitted The Finders again! And now it looks like Less may not be just the helpful intern they thought he was. Stay tuned in the coming months for the return of The Finders!

In the end, Charlie apologized to the rest of The Finders and made things right with them. She finally humbled herself enough to reconcile. We also read in the Bible how Jacob and Esau made things right with each other, and that also required both parties humbling themselves. Forgiveness and reconciliation always require humility. Talk with your family this week about any relationships that might need restoration and see if pride could be getting in the way. Pray for Godly humility to always be able to ask for forgiveness and grant it.


Goody Goody Gumdrops – Week 7 #Quest

Bible Story: Nicodemus and Jesus | John 3:1-17
Main Point: I can be in God’s family!
Memory Verse: Everyone who is (spread arms up and out) a child of God (point to others) has the power (show muscles one at a time) to win. (cheer) – 1 John 5:4 (ERV)112315_eKidz_Quest_GGGU_MainGraphic-01

Lesson Overview
We had a Goody Goody Gumdrop of a time visiting Grandma Ginger’s gingerbread house and hearing another amazing Bible story! We learned, “I can be in God’s family!” from a Bible story about Nicodemus, a leader in the city of Jerusalem.

Nicodemus wanted to learn more about Jesus, so one night Nicodemus went to visit Jesus. Nicodemus knew Jesus was God’s Son and Jesus told Nicodemus he could be in God’s family by being born again. Nicodemus didn’t understand how he could be born again like a little baby, since he was a man, so Jesus explained to Nicodemus he needed to be born again into God’s family. Nicodemus could do this by believing in Jesus! Just like Nicodemus can be in God’s family by believing in Jesus, we can be in God’s family by believing in Jesus, too!

My Goody Goody Gumdrops
Each weekend children visit the Goody Goody Gumdrops game they can collect main point gumdrops to add to their Gumdrop Jar poster. These gumdrops will help remind us we WIN when we are a child of God! Children can collect 10 gumdrops and bring their Gumdrop Jar poster back to Quest to receive a Goody Gumdrops sweet treat.

Has your child filled up their Gumdrop Jar poster with 10 gumdrops? If so, your child can bring their Gumdrop Jar poster back to Quest to receive a Goody Gumdrops sweet treat! If not, your child can continue earning gumdrops by attending Quest, earning bonus gumdrops in Quest, or by doing an eKidz at Home activity with you to earn a special colored gumdrop!

Families are invited to visit the Goody Gumdrop tree at any of our campuses to receive an eKidz at Home gumdrop. Parents should take these gumdrops and do the activity on the back with their child then help glue the gumdrop to their child’s poster.

Memory Verse – 1 John 5:4
Join us in helping your child learn our memory verse, 1 John 5:4. Children can recite this verse every week throughout the series to earn bonus gumdrops for their Gumdrop Jar poster.

Everyone who is (spread arms up and out)
a child of God (point to others)
has the power (show muscles one at a time)
to win. (cheer)
1 John 5:4 (ERV)

Knowing this verse helps us remember how we WIN when we believe in Jesus and obey Him! 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: Who were the men in our Bible story? (Nicodemus and Jesus)
  2. THINK: Did Jesus tell Nicodemus how to be in His family? (Yes!)
  3. FOLLOW: Can you help Nicodemus’ example and be in God’s family? (Yes!)
