Hollywood Highlight Reel – Week 4 #Motion

HHRE

March Memory Verse: Proverbs 27:17, “As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.”

Bible Story: Philippians 2:2-11

Main Point: “Reel” friends serve each other

In the final week of our Hollywood Highlight Reel series, we watched clips from Monsters University and learned that “reel” friends serve each other. We saw Mike Wazowski try to win the Scare Games by himself rather than put his friends and team first. More importantly, we learned from Paul’s description of Jesus’ example of humility in Philippians 2.

Each Motion kid was challenged to commit to serving someone this week. They wrote a person’s name and a way they could serve them on a card. Follow up with your child, see who they chose for their serving challenge, and encourage them to follow-through on it.

Talk also as a family about ways that you can serve others. For ideas and opportunities, visit http://elevationchurch.org/outreach

Hollywood Highlight Reel – Week 3 #Motion

HHRE

 

March Memory Verse: Proverbs 27:17, “As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.”

Bible Story: Ephesians 4:31-32

Main Point: “Reel” friends forgive each other

This weekend we watched a Hollywood Highlight Reel from Wreck-It Ralph and studied Ephesians 4:31-32. In Wreck-It Ralph, we saw Ralph break Vanellope’s car and then have to ask forgiveness for it. Vanellope acted as a reel friend and forgave him and together they restored the game.

Ephesians 4 explains that our call to forgive each other comes directly from the example Christ set by dying for us and purchasing our forgiveness.

Rent Wreck-It Ralph this week, have a fun movie night, and talk about other aspects of Ralph and Vanellope’s friendship.

Hollywood Highlight Reel – Week 2 #Motion

 

HHRE

March Memory Verse: Proverbs 27:17, “As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.”

Bible Story: Ecclesiastes 4:9-10, 12

Main Point: “Reel” friends help each other

Our second Hollywood highlight came from How to Train Your Dragon and we read in Ecclesiastes how “reel” friends help each other.

Hiccup learned to be a true friend when he overcame his tribe’s prejudice and decided to help Toothless. In Ecclesiastes 4, the Bible teaches us that “two are better than one” because they can help each other. It may be one of the most fundamental aspects of friendship, but our relationships should be helping us. And more than that, we ought to be friends that help those around us.

Rent How to Train Your Dragon this week (good preparation for the sequel, which comes out this summer!), have a movie night, and as you watch it, pay special attention to the friendships that develop.

Hollywood Highlight Reel – Week 1 #Motion

March Memory Verse: Proverbs 27:17, “As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.”
Bible Story: Proverbs 19:20, 27:17
Main Point: “Reel” friends give good advice

 
This week we started a brand new series in Motion called Hollywood Highlight Reel. We’ll be studying the Bible and watching clips from popular kids’ movies, all to learn how “reel” friends – make each other better.

Our movie this week was Frozen and we saw Kristoff give some good advice to Anna. When we looked through some Proverbs from the Bible, we saw that the Bible explains how important good advice is. The Bible calls it wise to accept good advice and says that good friends can “sharpen” each other. For our elementary kids, this can be a good evaluator of the quality of their friends – are they giving good advice?

Plan a movie night this week, get the movie Frozen, and as you watch it, talk about other positive elements of friendship in the movie.
