Welcome / Worship Bumper Intro
“Welcome to Motion! I’m so excited you’re all here! My name is ______ and I’m here to make sure you all have an exciting time today. One way we have fun here in Motion is by worshipping God and thanking him for the great things he’s done. Since worship is such an important part of what we do in eKidz, I wanted to invite one of our worship leaders to come talk to us about what it means to worship. Check this out”
Worship Leader Intro Video
Worship Song – Undefeated
Worship Song Intro
“Motion, stay standing as we sing our next song off the new eKidz album called, I Am Yours!”
Worship Song – I Am Yours
“Great job, Motion. Have a seat.
In last week’s episode of Finders 3: The Mask Of Monodios, we followed The Finders to the museum where Dani’s dad works as the security guard protecting the priceless artifacts inside. But at the end of the episode, we found a strange man lurking inside the one of the museum’s exhibits. Who is he and what’s he doing in the museum? Let’s find out in this week’s episode of Finders 3!”
Find3rs Episode 2
Video Outro / Dismissal to eGroups
“Oh man, Motion, what a bummer! Some of The Finders are leaving and not helping finish the rest of the tasks. To the rest of The Finders, it’s worth it to help with the chores because they’re excited about Dr. Oliver and the mask, but it wasn’t worth it to Zack, Hannah, and Caleb. It’s hard to endure when you don’t think something’s worth it. We’re going to head to our eGroups and learn more about how we can endure because it’s worth it.
When I call your eGroup leaders’ name, you can follow them back to your eGroups.”
(call eGroup leaders’ names and dismiss kids)
Trading Card Time Intro
“Motion, welcome back from your eGroups! During Finders 3 you’ll be trying to collect trading cards and the more you collect, the better prizes you’ll earn. Take a look at the screen to see the different prizes you’ll be able to earn.
(refer to the screen of combinations and prizes)
Every week we’ll be releasing new cards, so make sure you’re here every week to get the newest ones. Now Motion, before you came in, you received your trading cards for this week. I’m going to give you two minutes to look at your cards and see if your neighbors got anything different this week. I’ve got a few of my own cards, so I’ll be trading with some of you as well. Let’s get started!”
(take two minutes and trade cards with kids)
Trading Card Time
Trading Card Video Setup
“Alright Motion, let’s put our trading cards away and have a seat. I’m instating the Robber Rule, which means if I see any cards they’ll become mine.
(give kids a few seconds to get settled)
I’m loving how cool these cards are and I can’t wait to come back next week to collect the newest cards. Take a look at the screen to see which cards release next week!
(refer to video on screen)
Trading Card Video
“Those cards look so cool! Make sure you’re next week to earn the newest ones. As you’re leaving today, make sure you find an Elevation Church staff member out in the halls. You can recognize them because they’re all wearing white, plastic name badges that say ‘Elevation Staff.’ Every staff member will have a full set of trading cards and they’re ready to trade rare cards that haven’t even released yet, so make sure you’re looking for them!
Before we go any further, I want to take a moment and welcome our VIPs. You’re a VIP if it’s your first time here in eKidz and we’re so glad you’re here. Motion, help me welcome our VIPs!
If you’re a VIP, I’ve got some special instructions for you. Check out the screen!
This is a VIP lanyard.
[VIP Slide – Lanyard]
When you leave Motion, you need to take that lanyard to the black tent.
[VIP Slide – Black Tent]
Once you get to the black tent, show them your lanyard and they will give you a gift!
[VIP Slide – Gift]
VIP Lanyard + Black Tent = Gift.
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.”
Game Setup – Quick Change Clean Up
“Now Motion, in today’s video we saw The Finders get the museum back to tip top shape, and while they may have found that kind of boring, we know a way to spice things up. Check out the screen!”
*Kids will play a quick change game using bags stuffed with janitorial supplies. Slides will be shown on the screen indicating which items need to be put on or carried with them to the stage to show the host. The first person to put on the correct outfit, show the host and re-stuff the bags back with the items they were carrying wins the round. All items must be packed before any points are awarded.
Kids who are getting dressed cannot put clothes on themselves, they must have their team members put on the items or articles of clothing themselves. The team to win the most rounds wins the game.*

5th graders head to the back for the 5th Grade Huddle, everybody else can have a seat.
(wait for kids to be seated)
Throughout Finders 3, we’re going to focus on our memory verse, Galatians 6:9, which reminds us about endurance. Take a look at the screen and let’s say it together!
(read the memory verse on the screen with the kids)
Now, I want to ask someone to come on stage who thinks they can say the memory verse without looking at the screen. Raise your hand if you want to give it a try!
(call one kid up on stage)
Every one welcome ________ to the stage! Ok _______, let’s see if you can say the verse.
(give the kid an opportunity to say the verse, help them if needed)
Great job! You’ve just earned an extra trading card! Motion, give ________ a hand as he/she has a seat.
Dismissal Activity Setup / Mob My Mom Setup
“Before you leave today I want to tell you about something thats going on this weekend for Mother’s Day.
Ion the way out you’ll receive a sticker for the Mob My Mom event that takes place after Motion today. Here’s how it works: if our prize patrol sees you with your ‘Mob My Mom’ sticker on after the worship experience, you MIGHT win your mom an awesome prize. We’re going to pick a few lucky moms to receive a ‘Mob My Mom’ prize pack filled with all kinds of Mother’s Day goodies. But even if your mom doesn’t win the Mob My Mom prize pack, you still need to make sure you’re mobbing your own mom with hugs and love and thank them for all the things they do for your family.
As your parents come pick you up, we’ve got one more great game to play. Circle up with your eGroups and then I’ll explain how to play!
(give kids a moment to gather around their eGroup leaders)
Now Motion, Finders 3 takes place in a museum and while some people may find museums boring and stuffy, museums are awesome places which shows us the incredible history of the people who came before us.
In our final game called ‘Horrible Histories’, I’m going to be asking your eGroups questions about some of the awesome things that have happened in history and your eGroup is going to write your answer on the whiteboard. You’ll have 15 seconds to guess the answer and hold it in the air.
The team who gets the answer correct will earn 100 points and the team who earns the most points at the end of the game will be our winner. Let’s get ready to play ‘Horrible Histories.’ Take a look at the screen for the first question!”
