Weekend Wrap-Up

This weekend in eKidz was about GETting BACK to church and GIVing BACK to our community. All of eKidz worked on projects that benefited A Child’s Place, one of our Elevation Outreach partners. A Child’s Place is a Charlotte organization that works to erase the impact of homelessness on children and their education.

We are so proud of how hard all our eKidz worked and we know God will use their efforts to bless the kids and families from A Child’s Place. Giving back is a great way to start off the new year – check out how your child served their community!


1st – 5th Grade

Outreach Virtue: Generosity – giving more than what is required
Outreach Bible Verse: Let each of you look not only to his own interests but also to the interests of others.” Philippians 2:4 (ESV)
Overview: 

During small group, Motion kids made hygiene kits that included a toothbrush, toothpaste, washcloth, and deodorant, lotion, or shampoo. Kids had a powerful time of prayer for each hygiene kit they made and were able to pray for the kids who will receive the bags that God would use the hygiene kit to meet a need they have and to remind them that God loves them very much.

Bible Story: Matthew 25:31-46 – Sheep and Goats
Main Point: I Will Show Love to Others!
Overview:

Our Quest kids not only learned what it means to show love to others, they did show love to others! We learned the Bible story of the sheep and goats and how the people called “sheep” where always showing love to the King by giving him something to eat, something to drink, and clothes to wear.

Like the sheep group, Quest kids assembled snack packs for A Child’s Place. Each snack pack bag was decorated by kids and inside was placed a juice box, granola bar, crackers, and fruit cup. On the outside of the bag kids put a “Jesus Loves You” sticker. Snack packs are used by A Child’s Place to provided children a nutritious snack while outside of school.

Weekend Wrap-Up

From all of us in eKidz, we wish all of you a very Merry Christmas! Spend time today thanking God for His gift, Jesus! 


1st – 5th Grade

Monthly Virtue: Generosity – giving more than what is required
Monthly Bible Verse: “Remember this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously.”  2 Corinthians 9:6-7
Bible Story: God gave more than what was required by giving us Jesus. :: John 3:16-18
Lesson Overview: 

This month we have been learning that generosity is giving more than what is required and we studied the Christmas story to learn about people who were generous.

 

Mary, Joseph, and the wise men were all generous and gave more than what was required. This weekend we saw that God gave more than what was required when He gave us Jesus.

 

But will the message of God’s generosity be shared during the annual Christmas pageant? Since Oscar Spielman has taken over Dr. Oldman’s annual Christmas pageant, things have not gone as planned and the cast is less than enthusiastic. The rehearsals are over and it’s time for the pageant to begin … see what happens!

WEEKEND RESOURCE:  GodTime Card Week 4


3 years – Kindergarten

Bible Story: Luke 2:1-7 – Baby Jesus is born
Main Point: “Happy Birthday Jesus!”
Memory Verse: “God sent His son to be the Savior of the world” – 1 John 4:14
Lesson Overview:

It was our last broadcast on JOY FM where we were able to spread the good news of Christmas and celebrate Jesus’ birthday!  We heard Rudy’s ‘Story of the Day’ about Mary and Joseph traveling to Bethlehem to have a baby named Jesus. We helped Rudy broadcast “Happy Birthday Jesus!” to everyone at the North Pole!

 

 

 

Ask your child these JOY FM listener questions:

  • Did Rudy Reindeer say we give presents because it’s Frosty the Snowman’s birthday or because it’s Jesus’ birthday? (Jesus’ birthday)
  • Did Rudy Reindeer say Jesus was born in a barn or a boat? (a barn)
  • Is Christmas Jesus’ birthday? (yes – Christmas is when we celebrate Jesus’ birthday)


6 weeks – 2 years

Monthly Focus: Jesus is the Greatest Gift!
Bible Story:  Luke 2:8-14
Weekend Activity: Jesus is the Greatest Gift coloring page

Pick one night this week and grab the Jesus is the Greatest Gift coloring page your child brought home from eKidz.  Review the Bible story with your child by reading the Bible story from Luke 2:8-14. After reading the story to your toddler, grab a baby doll and encourage your toddler to pretend the doll is Jesus. Wrap the doll in a blanket and sing “Happy Birthday Jesus.” Tell your child that God loves him or her so much He gave us the greatest gift – His son Jesus!
