Hollywood Highlight Reel 3 – Week 1 #Motion


Series Memory Verse: Don’t lie to one another, since you have taken off your old self with its practices and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator. Colossians 3:9-10 (NIV)
Main Point: Being truthful can keep you from trouble!
Bible Story: Ruth Tells the Truth, Ruth 2

We began a brand new series this weekend called Hollywood Highlight Reel 3, where we’ll be learning about honesty – choosing to be truthful in what you say and do. We’ll watch clips from Hollywood blockbusters, observe the challenges of being honest, and turn to the Bible for how we can be honest in all we say and do.

This week we watched Mulan and saw how her dishonesty, though done with good intentions, caused a lot of trouble for her, her family, and her country. We looked at Ruth from the Bible, and she also had the opportunity to be dishonest in how she approached Boaz, but she chose honesty.

In our lives, there will be plenty of opportunities where we will have a choice to make about honesty. Even if we have good intentions, our dishonesty can cause trouble. Talk with your family about choices they’ve faced, what they’ve chosen, and how it worked out. Pray and ask for God’s help in choosing honesty in the future.

Come back next week for another Hollywood movie and more discussion about honesty!

Hollywood Highlight Reel 3 Memory Verse backgrounds – #Motion


The Bible talks about the importance of honesty to God. When anyone believes in Jesus, they are a new creation – the old has gone and the new has come. (2 Corinthians 5:17) As a new creation, we choose to live in ways which make us more like Jesus. Sharing, obeying our leaders, loving people – these are a few ways we become more like Jesus.

During Hollywood Highlight Reel 3, our memory verse says when we follow Jesus and do not lie to each other, we are becoming more like Jesus, too. Join us in helping your child learn about honesty from Colossians 3:9-10 by downloading the memory verse backgrounds for your phone or computer.

Don’t lie to one another, since you have taken off your old self
with its practices and have put on the new self, which
is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator.
Colossians 3:9-10 (NIV)

My Bible – Week 4 #Motion


Unplugged: The Bible is so big – I don’t know where to start.
Plugged In: We can help! Let’s start together.
Weekly Scripture: Romans 1:16

This week we wrapped up our My Bible series by unplugging from the idea that the Bible is so big that we don’t know where to start and committed to helping every family plug into the Bible moving forward. Check out this week’s episode of My Bible:


It can be intimidating to try to start reading the Bible – it is a big book! But we in eKidz want to help. Click HERE and HERE for two 30 day devotionals that you can download and print or use on your device. Use these as starting points to continue the habit of regularly plugging into the Bible.


And to finish up our series, check out the last episode of Me & My Bible as we hear from Micah, who plays Caleb on The Finders, and how he stays plugged into God’s Word.


The Queen’s Storybook: Sir Pogo’s Adventure – Week 3 #Quest

Bible Story: 1 Samuel 26:5-11
Main Point: I will help my friends do what is right!
Memory Verse: “Finally, let the Lord make you strong. Depend on his mighty power. Put on all of God’s armor. Then you can remain strong against the devil’s evil plans.” Ephesians 6:10-11


Dear princes and princesses of the Royal Land,

I’m so glad you are spending time at my castle as I share stories with you from my Storybook!

This weekend I shared about Sir Pogo the Knight and Darrin the Daring Donkey on a quest for the third piece of the armor of God. While searching for the shoes of peace, they learned all the berries had been stolen from the High Mountain Berry Festival! After talking with the Mayor, Sir Pogo and Darrin continued looking for the shoes when they met the Berry Bandit. The Berry Bandit wanted the people in the village to play a game of hide and seek with him, but they were too busy getting ready for the Berry Festival. The Berry Bandit took all the berries so everyone would start looking for all the berries and him!

Instead of helping the Berry Bandit do what was right, Sir Pogo and Darrin continued their search for the shoes of peace. They received a message from the Queen about the story of David and Abishai from the Bible.

David helped his friend Abishai do the right thing! King Saul was trying to hurt David, so he ran away, but King Saul and his army chased him. One night while King Saul was sleeping, David and Abishai went to King Saul’s camp. Abishai wanted to hurt King Saul, but David told Abishai to not harm the king. It would have been wrong if David let Abishai hurt King Saul. David helped his friend do what was right by not letting him hurt King Saul. Just like David, we can always help our friends do what’s right, too!

Sir Pogo and Darrin learned they should help their friend Berry Bandit do what was right, just like David helped Abishai do the right thing. Sir Pogo went to find the Berry Bandit and tell him it was the wrong thing to steal all the berries. The Berry Bandit did the right thing by returning all the berries. The mayor rewarded the Berry Bandit by letting him be in charge of the games and gave Sir Pogo and Darrin the shoes of peace for learning to help their friends.

When we put on the shoes of peace, we follow what the Bible says and tell others about Jesus everywhere we go! By helping the Berry Bandit do what was right, Sir Pogo and Darrin were wearing the shoes of peace! When we help our friends do what is right, we are following the Bible and living like Jesus.

See you next weekend at the castle for another story about Sir Pogo and Darrin the Daring Donkey! And don’t forget – there are only five more weeks until the Royal Ball! It’s going to so much fun celebrating with you!

Have a royal week,

The Queen


Each week your child will come home with another knight to add to their Hall of Knights poster. Once their poster is complete with four knights, your child can bring it back to Quest and receive a prize from the Queen’s royal treasure chest!


Join us in helping your child learn Ephesians 6:10-11! If your child comes back with this verse memorized, they will receive their own storybook from the Queen, filled with the adventures of Sir Pogo and Darrin the Daring Donkey.

Finally, let the Lord (point up)
make you strong. (make muscles)
Depend on his mighty power. (shout POWER and shoot fist in air)
Put on all of God’s armor. (hands on hips)
Then you (point out)
can remain strong (cup hands around mouth and repeat ‘strong’ three times)
against the devil’s evil plans. (tap fingers together like a villain)
Ephesians 6:10-11

Learning this verse helps us learn how to be better leaders, like those in the Bible stories we read each week. Practice your verse with your prince and princess, then ask him or her to Remember, Think, and Follow to review what we learned this weekend:

1. Remember: Who were the friends on our Bible story? (David and Abishai)
2. Think: What did David do to help his friend? (Helped him to the right thing by not hurting King Saul.)
3. Follow: Can you follow David’s example and help your friends do what is right? (Yes!)

My Bible – Week 3 #Motion


Unplugged: The Bible only needs to be read at church.
Plugged In: The Bible should be part of our lives each and every day.
Weekly Scripture: Psalm 119:105

This week in My Bible, we unplugged from the idea that the Bible only needs to be read at church and plugged into the fact that the Bible should be a part of every day of our lives. Check out this week’s episode of My Bible:

The Bible is like a light and just like we couldn’t imagine going a day without light, we need to make the Bible a part of every day. Talk with your family about what rhythms you already have in place for reading the Bible and what you might want to add to make the Bible a part of every day for your family.

We also heard from Nicole, who plays Rosie on The Finders, on how she makes the Bible a part of her life. Check out this week’s episode of Me & My Bible:
