Finders V – Week 2 #Motion

052516_eKidz_Motion_FIND5 (1)

Series Memory Verse: Proverbs 3:5-6, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.”
Main Point: My behavior is my choice.
Bible Story: Joseph in Potiphar’s Household, Genesis 39

Check out the second week of Finders V:

This week we heard Charlie explain to Zack that even though Less’ family is tied up with Goldman somehow, that doesn’t necessarily mean Less is evil. He, and everyone, gets to choose how they will live. Our behavior is our choice.

It’s easy in our lives to look at circumstances surrounding us and create excuses for our behavior. It takes maturity to own up to the fact that our behavior is truly our choice. Even for us as adults. Talk with your family about cases where they have been tempted to blame their behavior on outside circumstances. Commit to holding each other accountable to always taking responsibility for your own behavior. And come back next week for the next exciting episode of Finders V!


Finders V – Week 1 #Motion

Series Memory Verse: Proverbs 3:5-6, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.”
Main Point: My words are my choice.
Bible Story: Joseph’s Dreams, Genesis 37:1-11

This week we kicked off the latest installment of The Finders, as we began Finders V! Check out the first episode:

During this whole series, we’ll be learning about choices and studying the life of Joseph from the Bible to see the choices he made. This week, we talked about how our words are our choice. Joseph had some crazy dreams and, perhaps unwisely, chose to share those dreams with his family. His choice to tell them only worsened their feelings toward him and caused his father to reprimand him.

Though we’ll see a lot of great choices from Joseph throughout the rest of his story, he didn’t start off so strong here. Talk with your family about your words, remind each other of how powerful they are, and pray for the wisdom and courage to make wise choices with your words this coming week.

Make sure to come back next week to see the next episode of Finders V! And if you have missed any of our past Finders series, you can catch up on them through these links:

The Finders V – Memory Verse Backgrounds #Motion

052516_eKidz_Motion_FIND5 (1)

We are all faced with choices … chocolate ice cream or vanilla, tennis shoes or flip flops, or to watch a movie or play a video game. Not all choices are that easy, though, and neither is knowing how to make the right choice.

But God is always there to help us and so is the Bible. The Bible is full of truths which can help us make wise choices. Proverbs 3:5-6 tells us God will help us make right choices when we trust Him and live according to His Word:

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.

During Finders V our favorite mystery solving friends, The Finders, are still on the hunt for their nemesis, Goldman, but they’re about to encounter a new wrinkle. One of their members is going to be faced with a series of nearly impossible choices – choices that can change everything.

Use the smart phone or computer memory verse backgrounds and join us in helping your family learn Proverbs 3:5-6 and know who’s voice to listen to when faced with choices


The Force of Kindness – Week 5 #Motion

TFOK Main Slide

Series Memory Verse: Luke 6:31, “Do to others as you would have them to do to you.”
Virtue: Kindness: Showing others they are valuable by how you treat them.
Main Point: Be kind to people by serving them.
Bible Story: Jesus Forgives and Heals a Paralyzed Man, Luke 5:17-26

In our final week of The Force of Kindness, we learned how we can be kind by serving others. We watched an episode in Clone Wars where some younglings had to serve each other in order to become Jedis and have the ability to use the force.

This was also the perfect lesson to learn as our church kicked off Love Week 2016! Put this lesson into practice as a family by getting out and serving at one of the many opportunities available. For more information, visit: http://elevationoutreach.com/love-week/

And don’t forget that next week we start Finders V! Check out the promo here: 


The Force of Kindness – Week 4 #Motion

TFOK Main Slide

Series Memory Verse: Luke 6:31, “Do to others as you would have them to do to you.”
Virtue: Kindness: Showing others they are valuable by how you treat them.
Main Point: Be kind to people who aren’t kind to you.
Bible Story: Ananias Goes to Saul, Acts 9:10-19

Happy 4th of July!

In the fourth week of our The Force of Kindness series, we learned that we need to be kind even to those who aren’t kind to us. In our Clone Wars episode, we watched as Younglings and space pirates, normally enemies, had to be kind to each other and work together against a common enemy: the Separatists.

We then read in the Bible how Ananias was told by God to show kindness to Saul, formerly a persecutor of Christians. Ananias obeyed God and God turned Saul into Paul, who went on to be one of the most important men of the faith.

Talk with your family about people in your life who might not be kind to you but to whom you may need to show kindness. Pray for the strength to do so. Come back next week as we wrap up our series The Force of Kindness!

This week in Motion we also premiered the first promo for our next series, Finders V! Check it out:
