Quest :: Week of August 19

1708_FBheader_02

Monthly Focus: Who made everything wonderful? (God made everything wonderful.)
Bible Story: Animals | Genesis 1:20-25
Main Point: God made the animals, and they are wonderful.
Memory Verse: You have done great and wonderful things.” 2 Samuel 7:23 (NIrV)

God made the world and everything in it. And when we see what God has made, it reminds us what a BIG and creative God He is. But, God’s favorite creation isn’t a volcano, a supernova, or an otter—it’s people. The God who made all things good, is the God who made you.

Not only did God make the land and plants, but He made the water and the sky too! This week, we learned that God made the water and sky.

Motion :: Week of August 19

1708_SMP_Theme

Respect: Showing others they are important by what you say and do.
Series Memory Verse: “Show proper respect to everyone.” 1 Peter 2:17A (NIV)
Main Point: You respect God when you respect the people God made.
Bible Story: Don’t Show Favoritism Principle | James 2:1-4, 8-9

God is the all-powerful, Creator of the universe. There is no one else who has the position or power of God. We can’t help but respond to Him with respect. When it comes to people, everyone is important for two reasons: God made them in His image and Jesus died for them. That’s why respect is also a reflection of the character of Christ in us. When we see people like Jesus sees them, we can show everyone they matter to God.

In James 2:1-4, 8-9, we discover that people in the early church struggled with how to resect people who were different from them. James reminds us that it doesn’t matter what we look like on the outside. It’s what’s on the inside that shapes our respect for others.

Motion :: Drum Line :: Week 3 (Week of August 19) from Elevation Church eKidz on Vimeo.

You respect God when you respect the people God made. All people are created in God’s image and deserve our respect not because of what they’ve done or have but because of who they are.

We want kids to Bring It! to church. The Bring It! Challenge encourages Motion kids to bring themselves, their Bible, and scripture they’ve learned to Motion. Not only can kids be rewarded for bringing it, but the Bring It! Challenge is a fun way to grow and learn more about God and how He wants us to live.

MONTHLY FOCUS: God made everything wonderful.
VERSE FOCUS: “You have done great and wonderful things.” 2 Samuel 7:23 (NIRV)
BIBLE STORY: The Beginning | Genesis 1

This week in eKidz we played a game to remind us that God made everything wonderful, including the animals!

Play Animal Charades with your toddler to talk about all the wonderful animals God made. Act out an animal and encourage your toddler to guess what animal you are pretending to be. Use actions and sounds to help your toddler.

After each animal is guessed, ask, “Who made _________ (animal acted out)?” Encourage your toddler to say, “God!”

Say, “God made all _________(animal acted out) wonderful because God made everything wonderful!”

Motion :: Week of August 12

Respect: Showing others they are important by what you say and do.
Series Memory Verse: “Show proper respect to everyone.” 1 Peter 2:17A (NIV)
Main Point: Show respect to God because He’s in charge of everything.
Bible Story: Faith of the Roman Commander | Matthew 8:5-13

God is the all-powerful, Creator of the universe. There is no one else who has the position or power of God. We can’t help but respond to Him with respect. When it comes to people, everyone is important for two reasons: God made them in His image and Jesus died for them. That’s why respect is also a reflection of the character of Christ in us. When we see people like Jesus sees them, we can show everyone they matter to God.

 This week we read Matthew 8:5-13 where we find a Roman Commander. The commander was in charge of his men, who did whatever he told them to do. Yet, when his servant became seriously ill, he realized that he wasn’t in charge anymore. He had no power over his servant’s health. He respected that Jesus had authority to heal his servant and had faith He could do it. Jesus honored the centurion’s faith and heals the servant.

Motion :: Drum Line :: Week 2 (Week of August 12) from Elevation Church eKidz on Vimeo.

Show respect to God because He’s in charge of everything. Our respect begins and ends with how we respond to the all-powerful creator of the universe. Our respect for others flows from how we understand God’s power over the world.
