Lesson Overview

We had a Praise Party in Quest and learned I can love God by worshipping Him! We  worshipped God together by singing, dancing, and praising Him as we worshipped to songs from our new album from Elevation Worship Kids called One In A Million

We also heard a Bible story about a man named David who praised God by singing Him songs. David wrote these songs down in the Bible and we can read them in the book of Psalms.

Not only did David love God and sing songs to Him, he told us how we can worship God any time we want to! We can worship God in the car, we can worship God with our friends, and we can worship God by singing.

Memory Verse – Matthew 22:37-39
Throughout April, Quest children learned Matthew 22:37-39. Continue to review this verse with your child at home!

Love (hug self)
the Lord your God (point up)
with all your heart. (place both hands over heart)
Love (hug self)
your neighbor (point out)
as yourself. (thumbs to chest)
Matthew 22:37-39 (open hands like a book)

Knowing this verse helps children remember that we should follow Jesus. After reviewing the verse with your child, ask them to Remember, Think, and Follow to help them think about what we learned this weekend.

1 REMEMBER: How did David like to worship God? (By singing!)
2 THINK: Where in the Bible can you find the songs David wrote? (The book of Psalms.)
3 FOLLOW: How can we follow tDavid’s example? (We can show love to God by worshiping Him!)


Pit Stop – Week 5 #Motion

031016_eKidz_Motion_PSTO_NoTireMarks

Series Memory Verse: 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, “Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
Main Point: Stop to celebrate.
Bible Story: Israelite Feast Days, Exodus 23:14-19

Our friend Ben took his last visit to Ganassi Racing this week. Check out episode five of Pit Stop here:

Whether it’s as small as incremental progress or as huge as a Nascar Sprint Cup Series victory, the Ganassi Racing team takes time to celebrate. It’s an important part of encouraging each other, staying motivated, and continuing to improve.

It’s the same in our lives. We read in Exodus all the days that God had His people set aside to celebrate different things. God knows celebration is important in our lives for maintaining gratitude and He instituted it from the beginning. There are certain celebrations already established in our culture, and you as a family may have other traditions and celebrations. Talk through these and other opportunities you could take to celebrate accomplishments and all that God has done for you.

Speaking of celebration, in eKidz this weekend, we were celebrating the release of our second worship album, One in a Million! Check it out here: elevationchurchkids.com

There are so many (make binoculars around eyes) great  people and places in this neighborhood and we’ve had such a great time visiting some of my favorite places!

(Wave your hands in the air as an example to the children.)

(Allow time for children to wave their hands in the air.)

NEIGHBOR: In Wonder! Clubhouse this month we’re talking about how God calls us to love one another just like He loves us. This means we need to love our neighbors and other    people, and love God, too! It’s a special day at Wonder! Clubhouse because today is our neighborhood Praise Party. Today we are going to love God by worshiping Him! We will be worshiping God with some new songs from our eKidz album called One In A Million, so make sure you sing loud and have lots of fun.

NEIGHBOR: (Make binoculars on your eyes with your hands.) I see some of you wearing your special Praise Party colors, and our eGroup Leaders wearing their fun One In A Million           t-shirts. And if we turn out the lights…

NEIGHBOR: …You guys glow in the dark, too!

NEIGHBOR: Great job, everyone! Now, let’s get this Praise Party started by singing a worship song to God to let Him know we love Him.

Wonder! Clubhouse My Neighborhood – Week 4 #Quest

Bible Story: Love God and Love People |  Matthew 22:34-40
Main Point: I can love God and people by showing them!
Memory Verse: Love the Lord your God with all your heart. Love your neighbor as yourself. Matthew 22:37-39

031616_eKidz_Quest_WCMN

Lesson Overview
The early church wasn’t about a building, but about a group of people meeting together to worship and share life with one another. We can be just like the early church by sharing, helping each other and worshiping God together with our neighbors!

We heard a story from Justin the mailman, one of our neighbors! He told us about two of the most important commandments God tells us to do in the Bible. God tells us to love Him and to love people. And we can do that! When we show love to others by sharing toys, playing nicely, or telling someone, “I love you,” we are also showing God we love Him!

My Neighborhood
Each weekend children visit Quest during the month of April they can collect main point cars to add to their My Neighborhood poster. These cars will help remind them to show love to God and others. Children can collect six cars and bring their poster back to Quest to receive a special prize.

032116_eKidz_WCMN_Poster

Memory Verse – Matthew 22:37-39
Join us in helping your child learn our memory verse, Matthew 22:37-39. Children can recite this verse every week throughout the series to earn bonus cars for their My Neighborhood poster.

Love (hug self)
the Lord your God (point up)
with all your heart. (place both hands over heart)
Love (hug self)
your neighbor (point out)
as yourself. (thumbs to chest)
Matthew 22:37-39 (open hands like a book)

Knowing this verse helps children remember that we should follow Jesus. Help your child practice this verse at home. Then ask them to Remember, Think, and Follow to review what we learned this weekend.

1 REMEMBER: What are the two most important commandments? (To love God and love people.)
2 THINK: When I show love to people, who else am I showing love to? (God!)
3 FOLLOW: How can we follow these commandments? (We can show love to God and others!)
