Welcome / Video Intro

“Welcome to Motion and welcome to Drumline, our series all about respecting the rhythm! But who should we respect and how do we show it? Let’s check out the screen and find out. Say this with me now:

Respect: showing others they are important by what you say and do.

This week we’re learning all about what it means to show respect to a special group of people – our parents or the people you live with. Take a look at the screen!”

Host Video Outro

“When it comes to respecting your parents, here’s what you need to remember: you respect God when you respect your parents.

It’s true! When you show respect to your parents or the people you live with, you’re actually showing God that you understand He’s put them in charge of you for a reason.

Now Motion, it’s time for us to answer some questions based on the Bible story we just heard. Circle around your eGroup leaders now.

Ok, first question: Why does God want us to respect our parents? Discuss that now.

(give kids time to answer the question)

Next question: Think of a time when you didn’t show respect to your parents. How do you think that made them feel? Discuss that now.

(give kids time to answer the question)

Ok, final question: What can you do this week to show your parents respect? Talk about that now.”

Worship Intro

“Great job, everybody! I heard some incredible answers coming from your eGroups today. It’s time for us to celebrate God’s love as we stand to our feet and sing songs of thanks and praise. Stand to your feet as we sing, ‘Strength to Dance!’”

Worship Song – Strength To Dance

Worship Song – Grace Like A Wave

Dismissal To eGroups

“Great job, Motion! Everybody stay standing because it’s time for us to head back to our eGroups. When I call your eGroup leaders’ name, you can follow them back.”

(dismiss kids back to eGroups)


VIP Welcome

“Welcome back from your eGroups! Before we continue, I wanted to take a moment and welcome some very special guests who came to visit us for the first time. Motion, help me welcome our VIPs!

(initiate applause)

If it’s your first time here, we consider you a VIP – a very important person! VIPs, turn your attention to the screen because I’ve got some special instructions just for you.

If you have any questions about where to go or what to do, just ask someone in a blue eKidz shirt and we’ll be more than happy to help you out!”

Game Setup – Tap The Beat

“This month during our series Drumline we’ve been learning new rhythms, practicing staying on beat, and learning what happens when we all work together to make the same rhythm. In today’s game we’re going to see how you all do when it’s time for you to create the beat yourself!

I’ll be at the front of the room with a pair of drumsticks and I’m to going to play a rhythm. I’ll tap the rhythm with my sticks and then when I say ‘Go,’ you’ll tap the same rhythm, but instead, you’ll play the drums on the tops of your legs, trying to match the beat just the way I played it.

Every round we play, the beat gets a little harder so you’ll need to think quickly to make sure you’re repeating the same beat that I played. Try to keep up in our game ‘Tap The Beat!’”

Game – Tap The Beat
