The Animal Adventurers | Week 6 #Quest

 
Bible Story: Luke 15:11-24 | The Prodigal Son
Main Point: Teammates Celebrate!
Memory Verse: “Two people are better than one. They can help each other in everything they do.” Ecclesiastes 4:9 (NIrV)

Lesson Overview
Quest children joined the Animal Adventurers Troop 49 on one more adventure in the great outdoors this past weekend! Troop Master Mickey challenged Troop 49 to earn their sixth and final Animal adventurer badge, the Purple Parrot badge.

After hearing from Troop Master Mickey, we joined Troop 49 their adventure to climb The Great Big Mountain!

Troop 49 worked together as a team to hike to the top of The Great Big Mountain and everyone earned the Purple Parrot badge! Earning the Purple Parrot Badge was tough, and not many troops had earned it before, but through Troop Master Mickey’s training and from the Bible story, Troop 49 was able to celebrate each other during the hike to earn their badge!

Troop 49 Animal Adventurer Badges

During The Animal Adventurers series, Quest children became part of Troop 49! Each week children attended Quest, they earned a different Quest Animal Adventurer badge. This weekend children earned the sixth and final Animal Adventurer badge – the Purple Parrot badge – by learning how to be great teammates by working together to climb to the top of The Great Big Mountain. We learned we should celebrate each other just like the father celebrated the returning of his son in our Bible story!

Beats – Episode 6 #Motion

BEATS_LG_UNI_Graphic

Bible Story: Jesus and Zacchaeus, Luke 19:1-10

Beat of the Week: “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.” Matthew 5:8

We wrapped up our Beats series by hearing God’s promise to reveal Himself to those whose heart is pure. We heard from Kent, a very talented artist who understands what it takes to pursue God. Check it out:

God’s standard is simple: purity. Complete perfection. None of us, on our own, could ever live up to that standard. But that’s why God sent Jesus. Through His sacrifice, we can be purified, and that’s when our relationship with God is restored.

Use this week as an opportunity to talk with your child about where they stand with God. Let them ask questions and genuinely embrace those questions. Reach out to your eKidz or Elevation Church staff if we can do anything to help your family have these conversations.

Don’t forget – next week, if your Motion child can say one of the Bible verses from the Beatitudes, he or she will earn an additional prize!


The Animal Adventurers | Week 5 #Quest

 
Bible Story: Acts 6:1-7 | Food for Widows
Main Point: Teammates Help!
Memory Verse: “Two people are better than one. They can help each other in everything they do.” Ecclesiastes 4:9 (NIrV)

Lesson Overview
Troop 49 has been learning to work together as a team under Troop Master Mickey’s instruction. We’ve joined Troop 49 the past few weeks in the great outdoors to earn four Animal Adventurer badges, and this weekend Troop Master Mickey challenged us and Troop 49 to earn the Blue Beaver badge.

After Troop Master Mickey told Troop 49 their mission, children joined the troop to make a tent. See if Troop 49 was able to help each other on this adventure!

Because all members of Troop 49 helped each other build a tent, the troop earned the Blue Beaver badge. Through Troop Master Mickey’s training and a story in the Bible, Troop 49 learned that “Teammates Help!” and working together as a team is better than working alone!

Beats – Episode 5 #Motion

BEATS_LG_UNI_GraphicBible Story: Jesus and the Boy Who Shared His Lunch, John 6:1-13

Beat of the Week: “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.” Matthew 5:7

There are a lot of things in life calling for our attention: money, popularity, status, success, love, and much more. In our own strength, it’s easy to chase after these things, but Jesus calls us to a higher standard. It’s not that these things are wrong, they just need to be put in their place. This week we saw an example of someone who has learned to hunger and thirst for the right things and let everything else fall in line. Take a look:

The things the world wants us to hunger for vary greatly between you and your child, but the solution is always the same: seek God and His righteousness first, and the rest will work itself out. In fact, a “list” approach to priorities isn’t always the most helpful. For example, how do you truly prioritize God above your family? That’s why at Elevation, we say “put Jesus at the center” – of everything. Prioritize your family… and make your faith the center of it. Work hard at your job… for God’s glory. Make Jesus the center of all you do. And when you do that, there’s no better way to glorify God.

Your child can make the same applications. No matter what they do – school, sports, music, friendships, etc – help them learn how to make Jesus the center of it all.

And make sure your Motion child comes back next week and can recite all of the Beats and they will earn a special prize! The list is below.

The Animal Adventurers | Week 4 #Quest

Bible Story: Acts 4:32-37 | The believers share everything
Main Point: Teammates Share!
Memory Verse: “Two people are better than one. They can help each other in everything they do.” Ecclesiastes 4:9 (NIrV)

Lesson Overview
It wouldn’t be anther weekend with the Animal Adventurers Troop 49 without another adventure! We explored the great outdoors on our quest to earn our fourth animal adventure badge. So far in our adventures, Troops have earned the Red Rabbit badge, the Yellow Yak badge, and the Orange Otter Badge. Through Troop Master Mickey’s training and from stories in the Bible, Troop 49 continues to earn badges by learning how working together as a team is better than working alone.

Troop Master Mickey challenged Troop 49 to another adventure to earn their fourth Animal Adventurer badge, the Green Gorilla badge.

After Troop Master Mickey told Troop 49 their mission, children joined the troop to make and eat a s’more. See if Troop 49 was able to share as they made this yummy snack!

Everyone on Troop 49 shared (including Barry!) and were able to make and eat mini s’mores to earn their Green Gorilla badge. We checked back in with Troop Master Mickey to celebrate with our teammates for learning “Teammates Share!”
