Welcome / Video Intro

“Welcome to Motion! I hope you’re ready for The Big Give, our series all about how we can show generosity! But wait, how can we show generosity if we don’t know what it is? Well take a look at the screen and let’s find out together! I’ll say it once and then I want you all to say it with me. Take a look at the screen:

Generosity: Making someone’s day by giving something away.

Say that with me now.

(repeat the virtue with the kids)

Great job, Motion! It’s time for us to check out the screen and learn more about what it means to show generosity. Take a look.”

Connect Questions

“Victoria had every reason to be mad at Christmas until she remembered how God was generous and gave us His Son, Jesus. Because God was generous, Victoria knew that she could be generous, even when things around her were difficult.

Now, let’s answer a few questions about today’s Bible story and the video we watched. Circle around your eGroup leaders now!

(give kids time to circle around eGroup leaders)

First question: What reasons did Victoria have to be mad? Is it hard to be generous when you’re mad? Discuss that now.

(give kids two minutes to answer the question)

Second question: When was the last time you found it hard to be generous? What emotions were you feeling? Discuss that now.

(give kids two minutes to answer the question)

Now Motion, it’s time for our final question: When we have a friend that seems sad or upset by something, how can we show them generosity? Discuss that with your eGroup now.”

(give kids two minutes to answer the question)

Worship Intro

“Great job, everybody! I heard some incredible answers coming from your eGroups today. We should always be willing to show generosity to others, because God was generous when He gave us Jesus.

Game Setup – Cookie Toss

“Now Motion, it’s time for today’s game!

So here’s what has happened: it’s time for a big Christmas party and you’re generous enough to make cookies for all of your friends and family. Good for you! The problem is you’ve got to the get the cookies out of the oven and on the plate as fast as possible to make sure you don’t miss the party in today’s game called Cookie Toss.

One person will stand in front of their Game Group holding a plate. The other team members will form a line and at the front of each line will be a bucket filled with cookies. The first person in each line will remove a Christmas cookie from the oven and gently toss it to the person holding the tray, who will have to catch the cookie on the tray.

Each oven contains nine cookies, so everyone in your Game Group will get to toss one cookie each. Then, after everyone has tossed their cookies, we’ll see which Game Group has the most cookies still on their plate.

Everyone divide into your Game Groups, form your lines, and let’s get ready to play Cookie Toss!”

Game – Cookie Toss
