Overboard – Week 5 #Motion

012014_eKidz_Quest_ABTE_MainGraphic

Series Memory Verse: Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His love endures forever. Psalm 107:1 (NIV)
Main Point: Give thanks!
Bible Story: Jesus Heals Ten Lepers, Luke 17:11-19

The big day is finally here! It’s time for Ollie to battle Zane in a wake boarding showdown. See what happens in the conclusion of Overboard!


So in the end, Molly saved Ollie from a summer of humiliation, Ollie learned how to be grateful in all situations, and he made some great new friends! And, he finally met his aunt and uncle!

Being grateful is one of the most important character traits we can learn and in our eGroups this weekend, we saw a great Biblical example of it. Jesus healed ten lepers from their disease but only one took the time to come back and say ‘thank you’ to Jesus. God has done so much for us and the first thing we need to do in response is thank Him.

Talk with your family about ways you can grow in your gratitude as a family. It might be that you make it a regular part of your dinner conversation, or maybe you create a jar where you write things you’re grateful for on slips of paper and keep in the jar. Whatever it is, find ways to make gratitude central to your family.


Camp Wannastay – Week 10 #Quest

Bible Story: Genesis 6:5-7:16 | Noah Obeys God
Main Point: Leaders work hard!
Memory Verse: “Remember your leaders who taught you the word of God. Think of all the good that has come from their lives, and follow the example of their faith.”  Hebrews 13:7

At Camp Wannastay we are learning to be leaders who work hard! This week, our friend Brownie Bear taught us about a man named Noah. God told Noah a flood was coming and for Noah to build an ark. Noah had to work hard with his family so he could build the ark and put two of each animal on it. Noah was a leader who worked hard and we can be leaders like Noah, by working hard in all we do.


We are partnering with Newspring Church and using their Camp Wannstay video curriculum.To learn more about KidSpring, visit https://newspring.cc/kidspring.

This week, we received camp mail from our friend Green Gorilla who invited us to Green Gorilla celebration next week. He asked everyone to wear his favorite color, GREEN, so make sure to wear GREEN this next week!

Camp Canteen
Join us in helping your child learn Hebrews 13:7, our camp memory verse. Children can recite this verse each week during Camp Wannastay to collect a prize from the Camp Canteen.

Remember your leaders (point to head and say “bing”)
who taught you the word of God (open hands like a book)
Think of all the good (two thumbs up)
that has come from their lives, (spread arms wide)
and follow the example (cup hands around mouth while whispering)
of their faith. (shout and pump fist in the air)

Learning this verse helps us learn how to be better leaders, like those in the Bible stories we read each week. Practice your verse with your camper then ask your child to Remember, Think, and Follow to review what we learned this weekend:

  1. Remember: Who was the leader you learned about at Camp Wannastay? (Noah)
  2. Think: How did Noah do what was right? (We worked hard to build the ark.)
  3. Follow: How can you be a leader like Noah? (by working hard)

Overboard – Week 4 #Motion

012014_eKidz_Quest_ABTE_MainGraphic

Series Memory Verse: Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His love endures forever. Psalm 107:1 (NIV)
Main Point: Find a blessing no matter what!
Bible Story: Joseph Comforts His Brothers, Genesis 50:15-21

In our fourth week of Overboard, we saw Ollie try to continue his training despite his injury. See what happened!

Ollie’s training had mixed success, but when he changed his attitude and looked for the blessing in the situation, he ended up meeting Molly and making a new friend.

This lesson is powerful for us, both as adults and kids. We will have plenty of challenging circumstances come our way but if we can look for the blessing in the midst of it, we can be grateful no matter what.

Talk with your family this week about how you can look for the blessing no matter what’s going on. Commit to remind each other when you’re facing a challenge to intentionally look for ways to be grateful. And make sure to come back next week to see Ollie finally face off against the bully Zane in wake boarding!


Camp Wannastay – Week 9 #Quest

Bible Story: Genesis 6:5-7:16 | Noah Obeys God
Main Point: Leaders work hard!
Memory Verse: “Remember your leaders who taught you the word of God. Think of all the good that has come from their lives, and follow the example of their faith.”  Hebrews 13:7

We had so much fun celebrating Orange Otter day together at Camp Wannastay! This week, our friend Brownie Bear taught us about a man named Noah. God told Noah a flood was coming and for Noah to build an ark. Noah had to work hard with his family so he could build the ark and put two of each animal on it. Noah was a leader who worked hard and we can be leaders, too, just like Noah by working hard in all we do.

This week, we received camp mail from our friend Orange Otter who was a leader by working hard.

Overboard – Week 3 #Motion

012014_eKidz_Quest_ABTE_MainGraphic

Series Memory Verse: Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His love endures forever. Psalm 107:1 (NIV)
Main Point: Celebrate what God has done!
Bible Story: Staging a Celebration, Nehemiah 8

 

In our third week of Overboard, we finally got to see Ollie take to the lake and begin wake boarding. See what happened!

 

 

Ollie saw some success in his wake boarding but at the end, suffered an injury during a weightlifting session. Make sure to come back next week to see how he is!

 

Nigel had some wise advice for Ollie – it isn’t just the people around Ollie he should be grateful for because ultimately all we have comes from God. Nehemiah knew that and led the nation of Israel to celebrate what God had done for them. In your family this week, take time to talk about the ways God has blessed your family and find a memorable way to celebrate those – maybe it’s a celebration or a party, maybe it’s a visual reminder in your house. Whatever it is, make sure to celebrate what God has done.
