Sunny The Cloud | Week 6 #Quest

Memory Verse: “This is love for God: to keep his commands.” 1 John 5:3a (NIV)

eKidz_Quest_STCL_MainGraphicLesson Overview

We saw our friend Sunny the Cloud high up in the sky and can you guess which Quest animal we saw floating around up in the sky? Not Black Bear, or Blue Beaver, or White Warthog, but Yellow Yak! Sunny and Yellow Yak saw the Two By Two cruise ship passing by, so we looked down on the cruise ship deck to see how Sydney and Shelby were enjoying their cruise vacation!

 
When we looked down we saw our friends Sydney and Shelby waiting with Aunt Jessie. The Two By Two had docked at a new city and the crew was preparing so everyone could get off the cruise ship and explore the city. But First Mate Shelley let everyone know the ramp was broken and no one could get off the ship to explore the city until it was fixed. Aunt Jessie told Sydney and Shelby to be patient to get off the ship, but Shelby wanted to try lots of different ways to get off the boat anyways! After Sydney suggested they use a kite to fly off the boat, Aunt Jessie decided it was time for Sydney and Shelby to see the daily Bible story in the cruise ship theater.

During the Bible story of the day, we heard about Noah being on a boat for 150 nights with his family and all kinds of animals. After God made it rain to flood the earth during this time, the water began to dry up! But Noah and his family still had to wait until all the water was completely dry to get off the boat. It was hard for them to wait for such a long time, but they knew being patient was the right thing to do. Alongside Sydney and Shelby, Quest children learned “I Will Be Patient!” from our Bible story.

Memory Verse

We are so proud of the children who have memorized the verse 1 John 5:3a. But, we are excited for the many more who are continuing to work hard to learn God’s Word! Try reviewing the verse with your child during dinnertime using the hand motions below:

This is love (cross arms over chest)
for God: (point up)
to keep (point to head)
his commands. (two thumbs up)

Children will have the opportunity to say the memory verse every weekend of the series for a Sunny pop!


#SelfieSwitch – Episode 1 #Motion + @eKidz Love Week Promotion!

eKidz_Motion_SSW-SeriesGraphic

Series Memory Verse: Psalm 139:14, “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.”

Bible Story: Moses Encourages God’s People, Exodus 14:8-14, 21-29

Main Point: God Made Me to Encourage

We began a brand new series this weekend called #SelfieSwitch. We met Ollie, Mitch, and Violet as they got started on a group science project for summer school. Something very curious happens as they do, check it out below!

You’ll have to come back next week to see how Ollie and Mitch handle being switched! Violet showed us how God made us to encourage one another, rather than giving in to negative talk. Moses set a great example for us in the Bible, as he challenged the Israelites to stop their negative talk and put their trust in God. In your family this week, begin to pay attention to how much negative talk exists in your day to day life and take steps to transform that to encouragement.

Next week starts a very exciting week in the life of our church – Love Week 2014! One of our eKidz regulars helped us make a video to tell you why we’re so excited about Love Week. See for yourself!

We hope to see you back next week to take part in Love Week as we serve our neighbors near and far!

Lesson Overview

Our sky high adventures continued this weekend as we joined Sunny the Cloud up in the clouds! We saw our friend Red Rabbit and were just in time, too, as the Two By Two cruise ship was passing right underneath Red Rabbit’s cloud!

 
When we looked down to see what was happening on the ship, we saw our friends Sydney and Shelby playing fun games on the deck with pool toys. They were having so much fun and there were toys everywhere! Aunt Jessie saw a storm coming towards the ship and asked Sydney and Shelby to pick up all the pool toys so they didn’t blow away in the storm. But Sydney and Shelby heard thunder from the storm and were too scared to pick up all the pool toys. They wanted to obey Aunt Jessie and do what was right, but they were too afraid! Due to the closeness of the storm, Aunt Jessie, Sydney, and Shelby decided it would be best to head into the cruise ship theater to watch the daily Bible story.

During the daily Bible story, we heard about Noah being on a boat for 40 days and 40 nights while God made it rain to flood the entire earth. During this time, Noah and his family became afraid. But they knew they were doing the right thing because they were doing what God wanted them to do. They had courage to obey God even though they were scared!

Sydney, Shelby, and all of us in Quest learned “I Will Have Courage!” to do what God wants us to do!

Colossal Coaster World – Week 5 #Motion

CCWO_LG_UNI_Graphic

Series Memory Verse: II Timothy 1:7, “For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.”

Bible Story: Paul Trusted God, Acts 27:13-26

Main Point: Dare to Trust

In the final week of Colossal Coaster World, Daniel helped Jarrod Jason Vanderhagen be less afraid of what was next by learning to trust in God. The future can definitely be intimidating and scary because we don’t know what will happen. We can find encouragement, however, in the fact that we believe in the God who is in control of everything. That helped Paul in today’s Bible story and it can help us as well.

Talk about the future with your family this week. And as you encounter potentially frightening unknowns, point each other back to our loving and powerful God.
