Lesson Overview

The chefs at Sprinkle and Spice and Everything Nice bakery are busier than ever baking cookies to fill all the holiday orders. See what happened in the kitchen this past weekend and if they were able to keep their joy while baking.

 

Chef Spice learned he can have joy even when things don’t go his way! Things didn’t go as Joseph planned; he was scared to take Mary home as his wife and there was no room in the inn, but he trusted God and chose to have joy!

Just like Joseph and his family chose to have joy, Chef Spice decided to have joy and bake some delicious Chocolate Chunk Snowballs with Pastry Chef!

Never stop praying. (prayer hands)
Give thanks (point up)
no matter what happens. (spread arms wide)

The Finders: Warehouse 110 – Week 6 #Motion

 
Series Memory Verse: I Corinthians 1:10, “I appeal to you, brothers and sisters, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another in what you say and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly united in mind and thought.”
Bible Story: Ruth and Naomi, Ruth 1:14-18
Main Point: Teammates stick together

When we last saw The Finders, they had been captured by Mr. Badden and his crew. Let’s check in and see what happens this week!

Can you believe it?! Dr. Oldman is back! The Finders stuck together and worked together through the time with Mr. Badden and are now reunited with Dr. Oldman. “Sticking together” is essentially loyalty, and there may be no more important characteristic for teammates to have.

Loyalty is often forged in difficult times, as The Finders found out this week, but it also needs a bank of good memories to draw from as well. This week, in the midst of all the craziness of the season, take some time for your family to have fun together. Whether it’s a tradition or something completely spontaneous, invest in the loyalty and bond of your family by doing something together.

And as you go through the Warehouse 110 series, participate in solving the mystery with your Motion kid! Each week, look in their Finders Log for the eKidz at Home Mystery Question, view the episode here on the eKidz site, record the answers, and work as a team to solve the mystery. Bring your completed Parent Mystery Challenge card back to eKidz next weekend, December 20, 21, or 24, to receive a Warehouse 110 movie poster!

The Finders: Warehouse 110 – Week 5 #Motion

eKidz_Motion_TheFinders_Warehouse110_MainGraphic_2

Series Memory Verse: I Corinthians 1:10, “I appeal to you, brothers and sisters, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another in what you say and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly united in mind and thought.”
Bible Story: Elijah & The Widow, I Kings 17:7-16
Main Point: Teammates share

In Motion this week, we picked back up with The Finders and their adventure inside Warehouse 110. Check out Episode 5 and our teaching video here:

After a lot of fighting, arguing, and not getting along, The Finders finally decided to work together and each of them that had found a piece of the map decided to share their piece with the others. Unfortunately, just as they did, Mr. Badden and his crew walked in and captured them!

Sharing is an important part of teamwork. It’s something most of us are taught from a very early age and yet it can continue to be difficult to overcome our natural inclination toward selfishness. Ultimately, sharing and any form of generosity is birthed from the example God set for us with His generosity. Talk with your family this week about times when you struggle to share and ways you can remind yourself to share.

And as you go through the Warehouse 110 series, participate in solving the mystery with your Motion kid! Each week, look in their Finders Log for the eKidz at Home Mystery Question, view the episode here on the eKidz site, record the answers, and work as a team to solve the mystery.
