012014_eKidz_Quest_ABTE_MainGraphic

Series Memory Verse: Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, and in purity. I Timothy 4:12 (NIV)
Main Point: I can be a leader who includes others!
Bible Story: Nehemiah Rebuilds the Walls, Nehemiah 1-3; 4:1-6; 6:15-16; 12:27, 43

During Camp Wannastay we’re learning about leadership – setting an example for others by what you say and what you do. This week, we learned how Nehemiah included others in the rebuilding of Jerusalem’s walls. One of the most important parts of leading is being willing to include others. Often, it’s easy to think it’s easier to just do things yourself, but including others not only gives them a chance to participate but also teaches you how to lead.

With your family this week, talk about opportunities you have to include others and ways you can do that. Pray for the courage and humility to do that and the wisdom in leading others.  


Camp Wannastay – Week 2 #Motion

Series Memory Verse: Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, and in purity. I Timothy 4:12 (NIV)
Main Point: I can be a leader who shows respect!
Bible Story: David Shows Respect, I Samuel 17

During our series Camp Wannastay, we’re learning about leadership – setting an example for others by what you say and what you do. This week, we learned about one of the greatest leaders in the Bible, King David, and how showing respect is an important part of being a leader. We saw how David didn’t just show respect when he was a king, but he started even when he was just a boy.

With your family this week, talk about different ways you can show respect, not only to those “above” you, but to everyone around you. And make sure to get back next week for another fun time at Camp Wannastay! 


Camp Wannastay – Week 1 #Motion

Series Memory Verse: Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, and in purity. I Timothy 4:12 (NIV)
Main Point: I can be a leader!
Bible Story: Twelve Men, Matthew 4:18-22, 9:9, 10:1-3, John 1:43-51

We began a brand new series this week called “Camp Wannastay,” where we’ll be learning all about leadership – setting an example for others by what you say and what you do – from some of the greatest leaders in the Bible. This week, we learned about 12 leaders called The Disciples who followed Jesus and learned leadership from him. Jesus is the perfect example of a leader and if we want to be a leader, we need to follow Him.

With your family this week, talk about the example that Jesus set for us, things like how he always told the truth, helped people, forgave people, included others, always did the right thing, and much more. Then talk about how you can apply those principles to your own lives and how that can help you be a great leader.

We can be leaders who set an example for others in all we say and do! The Bible says we can be leaders NOW, no matter what age we are, and follow Jesus’ example. Download the memory verse backgrounds for your phone or computer and join us in helping your child learn 1 Timothy 4:12.

Don’t let anyone look down on you (shake head “no”)
because you are young, (pat head)
but set an example for the believers (hands out to sides, palms up)
in speech, (cup hands around mouth)
in conduct, (pound fists on top of each other)
in love, (make heart with hands)
in faith and in purity. (point to head)
1 Timothy (hold up pointer finger)
4:12 (hold up four fingers)


FIND3RS: The Mask of Monodios – Week 6 #Motion

040715_eKidz_Motion_FIND3RS_MainGraphic

Series Memory Verse: Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Galatians 6:9 (NIV)
Main Point: I can stick with it because we win in the end.
Bible Story: Freedom for Peter, Acts 12:6-12

We have reached the end of FIND3RS! The Finders solved the mystery, Dr. Oliver was the guilty party, and all was resolved. Until… The Finders received the mysterious message and discovered the iPad video from the Dr. Oldman-lookalike! You’ll have to wait until Finders 4 to learn more!

The Finders won in the end and we used that as a teaching point for endurance. We read the story of Peter and how he got freed, and that hope can give us the strength needed to endure. Ultimately, we know that God wins in the end and with that hope, we can endure anything we face. Talk with your family about that hope and how that can impact your life.

Next week we begin a brand new series – we can’t wait to see you there!
