Welcome / Worship Intro
“Welcome to Motion! My name is _________ and I’m here to welcome you to the final week of My Bible, where we’ve been learning to unplug from ideas like the Bible is boring, irrelevant, or unimportant and we’ll plug into the Bible to learn more about it, how to use it, and how it applies to our everyday life.
Before we begin today, I want to welcome a special group of people who are in eKidz for the first time today. Motion, help me welcome our VIPs!
If you have any questions, just ask someone in a blue eKidz shirt! We’re all here to make sure you have an awesome time, and one of the ways we have an awesome time in Motion is by singing, clapping, and dancing while we worship. Motion, check out this video!”

That’s right, we’re going behind the scenes with Caleb of The Finders to find out how he plugs into his Bible with a segment we’re calling, ‘Me and My Bible.’ Check this out!”

What a cool day for VIPs to visit us! We got to learn more about the Bible, we got to worship together, and you had a great time with your eGroups. But there’s more! If you’re a VIP, which means it’s your first time in eKidz, listen up because I’ve got some special instructions for you. Check out the screen!

Game Setup – Light Hunt
“Motion, we’ve had a great time throughout My Bible. Our last game of this series is going to see your eGroup working on getting some power from a pool across the room and bringing that power back to your eGroup. Check out the screen!
*Each eGroup will line up and the first kid in each eGroup will receive a headlamp. They must go to the pool at the front of the room filled with bouncy balls and light up bouncy balls. The kid who goes to the front of the room must find one light up bouncy ball and bring it back to a bucket at the front of their line before handing the head lamp to the next kid in line. The first eGroup to have 10 light up bouncy balls in their bucket wins the round.
The game is reset by dumping all bouncy balls back into the pool and mixing them up before the next round. Lights in the theater should be off while this game is being played.*

Hollywood Highlight Reel 3 Promo / Dismissal Activity Setup
“Motion, we had so much fun during My Bible, but next week we’re beginning a brand new series called Hollywood Highlight Reel 3. If you love great movies, you’re going to love this series as we take a look at some Hollywood Blockbusters and how the characters in those movies show honesty.
Before your parents come in, we’re going to split the room into two different teams. Each team will have the option of choosing three pieces of wire to connect their circuit while trying to avoid the obstacles on the board. I’ll call one kid from each team to come up to the front of the stage and choose 3 cards that I hold in my hand. From those 3 cards you’ll want to choose the best wire shape that helps your team reach the other side of the screen the fastest. Once you choose which card you want to use, we’ll place it on the board and your team will hopefully be one step closer to completing the circuit.
Today’s teams will be kids wearing light colored shirts versus kids wearing dark colored shirts. Let’s divide into teams, flip a coin and we’ll get ready to play ‘Current Connect!’”
(The game will be played in Pro Presenter and each team will have a laser pointer to help designate where they want their piece to go)
