Motion :: Week of May 13

Finders VI Email Header

COOPERATION: Working together to do more than you can do alone.
Series Memory Verse: “Two people are better than one. They can help each other in everything they do.” Ecclesiastes 4:9 (NIrV)
Main Point: We can work together to point others to Jesus.
Bible Story: The Early Church Helps Each Other | Acts 2:42-47; John 13:35

When a mysterious and elusive astronaut begins scaring away all the kids at Camp Jupiter, the camp is forced to consider immediate shutdown. Mr. Stone, the camp director, turns to the Finders for help. 

In Episode 3 we watched as Caleb and Alex were looking to unravel the mysteries hidden throughout Camp Jupiter, but while they were trying to discover what the camp counselor’s daughter was working on, they seem to have gotten themselves into some trouble. Will The Finders be able to cooperate with Ava and the Camp Jupiter staff to find the truth about the alien invasion?

Finders VI: The Case of Camp Jupiter | Episode 4 from Elevation Church eKidz on Vimeo.

During eGroup time we dug into God’s Word to see a great example of cooperation from the Bible. Jesus told His disciples the best way they could share His love was to do whatever it took to show love to others. That still applies to us today! When we show love to others, they can see Jesus’ love through us. It’s definitely possible to do this on our own, but our impact can be so much greater when we work together!

Motion – Week of January 29 #Motion

KNOWLEDGE: Discovering something new so you can be better at whatever you do.
MAIN POINT: Discovering what God says helps you make the wise choice.
BIBLE STORY: Jesus Tempted in the Wilderness | Luke 4:1-13
MEMORY VERSE: “Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.” Psalm 119:105 (NIV)

God designed people in such a unique way—different from the rest of creation—to pursue finding the answers to life’s hidden secrets. He wants us to pursue knowing more, because He wants us to know Him more.

Jesus helps us know God better. As we dig deeper into the story of Jesus, we discover more about how God desires a relationship with us and invites us to help Him spread the message of Jesus throughout the world. To do that, we need to know God through Jesus. God is real, God made us, and He made all things.

We will spend the month of January taking a closer look at the way knowledge shows up throughout the Gospels.

After Jesus is baptized, God leads Him to the wilderness where Satan tempts Him. Satan twisted what Jesus knew about God and His Word. But Jesus knew Scripture backwards and forwards. Jesus leveraged what He knew from Scripture to use God’s truth to fight and win over evil.

Discovering what God says helps you make the wise choice. When we read God’s Word, we discover the truth about what God wants for our lives. And when we know that, it makes it easier for us to make the wise choice. When we know God’s word we are able to use it to resist the temptation to do something wrong.

Motion – Week of January 22 #Motion

KNOWLEDGE: Discovering something new so you can be better at whatever you do.
MAIN POINT: Discovering what God says helps you follow Jesus.
BIBLE STORY: Jesus’ Baptism & John Calls Jesus Lamb of God | John 1:19-42
MEMORY VERSE: “Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.” Psalm 119:105 (NIV)

God designed people in such a unique way—different from the rest of creation—to pursue finding the answers to life’s hidden secrets. He wants us to pursue knowing more, because He wants us to know Him more.

Jesus helps us know God better. As we dig deeper into the story of Jesus, we discover more about how God desires a relationship with us and invites us to help Him spread the message of Jesus throughout the world. To do that, we need to know God through Jesus. God is real, God made us, and He made all things.

We will spend the month of January taking a closer look at the way knowledge shows up throughout the Gospels.

In John 1:19-42, we read John’s account of Jesus’ baptism. Jesus was about to start His public ministry. He shows up on the banks of the Jordan River where his cousin, John the Baptist, was baptizing people. John the Baptist recognized Jesus, not just as his cousin, but as God’s promised Savior. John understood God’s story and called out to the crowd, “Look! The Lamb of God! He takes away the sin of the world!” (John 1:29, NIrV) That day, he pointed out to everyone who Jesus was and why they should know Jesus and start to follow Him.

Discovering what God says helps you follow Jesus. The more we read God’s Word, the more we understand about who Jesus is and why He came to earth. God’s Word gives us clarity for what it means to believe in Jesus and follow Him with our lives.

Motion – Week of January 15 #Motion

KNOWLEDGE: Discovering something new so you can be better at whatever you do.
MAIN POINT: Discovering what God says is the most important thing.
BIBLE STORY: Jesus at the Temple | Luke 2:41-52
MEMORY VERSE: “Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.” Psalm 119:105 (NIV)

God designed people in such a unique way—different from the rest of creation—to pursue finding the answers to life’s hidden secrets. He wants us to pursue knowing more, because He wants us to know Him more.

Jesus helps us know God better. As we dig deeper into the story of Jesus, we discover more about how God desires a relationship with us and invites us to help Him spread the message of Jesus throughout the world. To do that, we need to know God through Jesus. God is real, God made us, and He made all things.

We will spend the month of January taking a closer look at the way knowledge shows up throughout the Gospels.

We continue our look at knowledge in Luke 2:41-52 as we head to Jerusalem when Jesus was twelve years old. He had traveled to Jerusalem with his family for a festival. When Mary and Joseph began their journey home they realized Jesus wasn’t with them. They turned around and went all the way back to Jerusalem to find Jesus in the temple surrounded by priests and rabbis. Jesus recognized something very important. He knew that if He wanted to be a part of God’s story and know the secrets of the world around Him, He needed to be in a place where He could learn what His Father said.

What God says is the most important thing to know. We need to keep learning what God says through His words. Through reading the Bible, we can hear what God wants us to know about the best way to live and in the process discover how to have a forever relationship with Him.

Motion – Week of January 8 #Motion

KNOWLEDGE: Discovering something new so you can be better at whatever you do.

BIBLE STORY: Wise Men Discover Jesus | Matthew 2:1-12
MEMORY VERSE: “Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.” Psalm 119:105 (NIV)

God designed people in such a unique way—different from the rest of creation—to pursue finding the answers to life’s hidden secrets. He wants us to pursue knowing more, because He wants us to know Him more.

We will spend the month of January taking a closer look at the way knowledge shows up throughout the Gospels.

In Matthew 2, we discover wise men in the Far East. Their lives were dedicated to discovering more about the universe. One night they noticed a bright star that lead them on an epic journey to find the King of Kings prophesied in the ancient Hebrew Scriptures.

Discovering what God says helps us know Jesus. The entire Bible points to Jesus. If we want to get to know Jesus, we can read what the writers of the Bible say about Him. The Bible is the key to knowing more about Jesus.
