(refer to VCR image on the screen)
you may know that to rewind means to go back and do something again, like go back to the beginning of your favorite movie. Well, just like you want to watch your favorite movie over and over, there’s something else that deserves a replay, and that’s kindness! What’s kindness? Check out the screen and let’s find out.
Kindness: Showing others they are valuable by how you treat them.

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 a few moments to gather around their eGroup leaders)

First question: The character in today’s story keeps track of all of his good deeds. Is this how we’re supposed to act? Why or why not? Discuss that now.

(give kids two minutes to answer the question)

GAME SETUP – REFLEX

“Today’s game is going to test your reflexes! Your Game Group will compete against each other as you pass this ball back and forth between your Group members. Now, I know that doesn’t sound too difficult, but there’s a catch!

The only way you can pass the ball between your Group members is by jumping and catching the ball and THEN tossing it to someone else before your feet hit the ground. If this sounds difficult, it is. I want to call a volunteer up to the stage to help me show what it looks like.

(call a volunteer to the stage to help you show what this looks like)

Thanks for helping me out! If you get out or if you make a bad pass to somebody, meaning there’s no way they can catch it, then you’ll step backwards out of the game circle until the next round of the game.

Now Motion, it’s time for you to find your Game Groups and form a circle. Once you’ve got your Group together in a circle, we’ll hand you the supplies you’ll need for the game.

(make sure kids are in groups of 10 for this game)

Alright Motion, now that you’re ready for the game, let’s play ‘Reflex!’”
