Your Kids Are Ready To Invite

This past weekend your Motion age child received a ‘Dirtvite’ to use to invite their friends to the Elevation Easter Experience. Many of them already knew exactly who they wanted to invite.  We want to encourage all parents to help their kids extend this invitation. It may mean picking a child up or ensuring a family that you will sit with them.  We hope to create a lifelong habit by instilling the value of inviting others to church now.

 


Egg Dyeing Prayer Kit

This past weekend we were excited to provide Quest & Motion families with an eKidz Prayer Initiative Kit. This egg dyeing kit was designed to empower your family to pray intentionally this week. As Elevation Church and eKidz prepares for the Easter Worship Experiences, we invite you to use this incredible resource and join with us in prayer.

Please tweet us and let us know how you are using this kit @eKidzAtHome


Dirty Jobs Episode 7

Dr. Oldman hasn’t gotten too dirty in any of the Dirty Jobs episodes he has hosted so far. But that could all change. Let’s find out what dirty job he finds this week.

In the story of the prodigal son, the son took his father’s money and ran away from home. He spent all of the money, lost his friends, and ended up eating slop with the pigs, kind of like Dr. Oldman.

When he went home, he begged his father for forgiveness, expecting him to be angry. But his father wasn’t angry, he didn’t yell or send him away. He was just happy that his son had come home. It’s the same way with our heavenly father, God. Even when we mess up, he loves us and wants us to come to Him. In fact, God wants everyone to come to Him.

This week learn more about the prodigal son by spending time completing the Dirty Jobs Devotionals.

Weekend Wrap-Up


1st – 5th Grade

Monthly Bible Verse: 2 Timothy 3:16-17 “All scripture is God breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be throughly equipped for every good work.”
Bible Story: God wants everyone to come to Him. | Luke 15:11-32
Lesson Overview:

Our unforgettable story this weekend in Motion was the prodigal son, from Luke 15:11-32. We read that a young son asked his father for his inheritance money and his father gave it to him. The younger son took his money and spent it all living a wild life style. When there was a food shortage in the land the young son didn’t know what to do; he was literally eating and sleeping with pigs. He decided to go home to his father and beg his forgiveness and ask to be a servant in his fathers house. At least then he would have food and a place to stay.

 
The Bible says that when the young son was still a long way away his father saw him and ran to him. He wanted his son to come home because he loved him so much! The father threw his young son a party to celebrate that he had come home.

The same thing is true for the way God loves us as His children. He wants us to come home to Him just like the father in this story wanted his younger son to come home to him. Just like the father in the Bible story, God will always welcome us home with open arms too. This week remember that God wants us to come to Him.


3 years – Kindergarten

Bible Story: The Prodigal Son | Luke 15:11-24
Main Point: I Will Ask For Forgiveness!
Memory Verse: “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.” - Psalm 119:105
Lesson Overview:

This weekend at The Great 8 Movie Marathon we learned “I Will Ask For Forgiveness!” from a movie called “To The Depths.” We watched as Captain Nic and his submarine crew ventured down in the deep blue seas to learn the Bible story of the prodigal son.

All three members of the submarine crew were fighting over who would control the ship, and they ended up losing the treasure map! The crew members were angry with each other and didn’t want to tell Captain Nic about what they had done.

Captain Nic shared the Bible story and taught his crew that they can always ask for forgiveness from others, just like the prodigal son asked for forgiveness from his father. The crew learned their lesson and asked Captain Nic for forgiveness for losing the treasure map and for fighting with each other

Quest Memory Verse
