Weekend Wrap-Up

 

 

1st – 5th Grade

Monthly Virtue: Worship – choosing to praise God no matter what.
Monthly Bible Verse: “Be joyful always; pray continuously give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”  1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
Bible Story: 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
Lesson Overview:  This weekend we learned that there are a lot of ways to worship God!  We can worship Him through our prayers, the songs we sing, by dancing, playing instruments, and by lifting our hands in surrender to show God He is more important than anything else in the world!

Pastor Steven also had a very special gift for all Motion kids – a brand new eKidz EP!  The eKidz EP includes some of the songs that were debuted in eKidz during The Worship Games.

This week, use these songs to help your child put into practice what he or she has learned about worship.  As a family, spend time listening to the songs and worshipping God each day – when getting ready for the day, during car rides, when preparing dinner, or right before bed.

Bible Story: Luke 19:1-10
Main Point: “I Can Be A Friend Like Jesus!”
Memory Verse: “For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works.” – Ephesians 2:10a
Lesson Overview: 
It was our last weekend backstage on the movie set where we learned “I Can Be A Friend Like Jesus!” A new actor, Stinky McStinkster, arrived on the set and no one wanted to be his friend.  Moviestar didn’t want to be his friend because he was stinky.

Prop master saw that Stinky’s feelings were hurt and he shared a Bible story about how Jesus was a good friend. We learned that Jesus befriended a mean tax collector named Zacchaeus, even though no one else wanted to be his friend.  Moviestar learned that she could be a good friend just like Jesus and become friends with Stinky even though it wasn’t a popular thing to do.

Ask your child to name two ways they can be a good friend like Jesus, and help them do these things this week at home!

 

 

 

 

Monthly Focus: God wants me to be kind!
Bible Story:  1 Kings 17:7-15
One of the most powerful ways to teach your toddler how to be kind is to show kindness yourself.  Sit down with your toddler and family and say, “God wants us to be kind!  This week, we are going to help each other show kindness by using the kindness jar you made in eKidz.”

Explain to your family that every time someone is “caught” being kind he or she gets to take a treat from the Kindness Jar.  When we are kind to each other, it makes God happy!

If your child was not in eKidz this past weekend create your own Kindness Jar: Grab a small plastic jar and fill it with candy, such as M&M’s or jelly beans and allow your child to decorate the jar with stickers.  Write the words “Kindness Jar” on the top or side of the container.


The Worship Games – Episode 2

We are one tribute closer to declaring the winner of The Worship Games! Last week Brad, from District 2, was eliminated in the very first challenge, the Dizzy Entrance. Who will be the next tribute eliminated in this week’s episode of The Worship Games? Find out now!

 

Gamemaker Wade taught us that one reason we worship God is because we are thankful for all that He has done. We praise God because He has given us so much!

Prayer is another way that we can worship God. It’s a chance for us to thank Him for who He is and what He does for us. Spend time worshiping God through prayer as a family this week. Here is a suggested prayer:

God, we are so thankful for who you are and what you do for us. Thank you for sending Jesus to live a perfect life and die so that we can live forever with you. Thank you for forgiving us of our sins. Thank you God for being so kind and loving, for providing for our families and us. Each day, help us to remember who you are and what you have done for us. Amen.

Monthly Bible Verse: “Be joyful always; pray continuously give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”  1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
Bible Story: Psalm 100
Lesson Overview:  Worship is choosing to praise God no matter what.  We worship God because of who He is and what He has done for us!  Moses set a great example of worship for us in Exodus 15:1-4.  This week, read these verses with your child.  Think about how Moses describes who God is and what he saw God do in his life.

Only three tributes remain!  Check back on the blog tomorrow to see which tribute was eliminated from the Gamemaker’s archery challenge!!

And don’t forget to cast your vote for the Favored Tribute! Whether the tribute has been eliminated from the games or is continuing to compete in the competition, who is your favorite tribute?  The Favored Tribute will receive a very special gift from the Gamemaker.

3 years – Kindergarten

Bible Story: Luke 17:11-19; Jesus Heals the 10 lepers
Main Point: “I Will Thank Jesus!”
Memory Verse: “For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works.” – Ephesians 2:10a
Lesson Overview: There was a lot of backstage excitement this weekend at Entourage Studios as Quest kids hung out backstage with our good friend Moviestar and learned that we should be thankful to God for everything we have!

Moviestar’s agent told her she should pray to God and ask Him for cooler stuff, even though Moviestar thought her stuff was pretty great. When Prop Master overheard her praying for these new things, he decided to share a Bible story about being thankful. After hearing the Bible story about the 10 lepers, we learned “I Will Thank Jesus” just like the single leper who returned to say ‘thank you’ to Jesus.  Moviestar learned that she should pray to God and thank Him for all of the things she has!

We wrap up our Entourage series next weekend, so don’t let your Quest child miss our red carpet fun while we learn how to be a friend like Jesus!



 

Monthly Focus: God wants me to be kind!
Bible Story:  1 Kings 17:7-15
Grab a Bible and read 2 Timothy 2:24b to your toddler.  It says, “Be kind to everyone.”  Practice showing kindness with your toddler by decorating cookies to give to a neighbor.  While decorating the cookies, talk to your child about kindness.

  • When you give someone a hug, are you being kind?  (Yes!)
  • When you draw a picture for someone, are you being kind?  (Yes!)
  • When you play with your friend, are you being kind?  (Yes!)
  • When you help your teacher clean the room, are you being kind?  (Yes!)

When the cookies are finished, deliver them to a neighbor.  As you walk back home, say, “Thanks for showing kindness to __________ (insert neighbor’s name) by giving a gift of cookies.  You were very kind!  God wants us to be kind!”
