Countdown

Welcome

“Hello and welcome to Motion! I’m glad to see you all here and I know you’ve spent some time this year working on your New Year’s resolutions, or commitments, like we talked about last week. But what is commitment? Let’s check out the screen and find out together!

Commitment: Making a plan and putting it into practice.

Say that with me now.

(repeat the virtue with the kids)

Great job, Motion! Right now we’re going to continue with our commitment last week of staying fit by doing the workout of the day”

Workout of the Day

“Today’s workout is one that’s pretty difficult, but if you can master it, then you’re well on your way to becoming amazingly fit. This one exercise is called a burpee. Please allow me to demonstrate!

(Jump high in the air with your hands raised, then fall to the ground in a pushup position. Then, from the pushup up position, launch yourself into another jump.)

That’s a burpee! How about we shoot for a goal of six burpees? Let’s get ready to do that now. Everyone get into a starting position and let’s begin!”

(perform six burpees with the kids)

Worship Intro

“Great job everybody! Now that we’re warmed up, let’s put that energy to good use as we sing, dance, and thank God for the amazing things He’s done. Let’s sing, ‘Dance.’”

Connect Questions

“Simon Peter took a stand and told Jesus who he really thought Jesus was. In that moment, Peter made a commitment to Jesus by recognizing that Jesus was God’s son.

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: Why do you think it was important for Jesus to ask the disciples who they thought he was? Discuss that now.

(give kids two minutes to answer the question)

Second question: Who do you think Jesus is? Discuss that now.

(give kids two minutes to answer the question)

Now Motion, it’s time for our final question: Do you have any friends who need to hear more about Jesus? How can you help your friends find out more about Jesus? Discuss that with your eGroup now.”

(give kids two minutes to answer the question)

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.

Bring It! Challenge

START. NOW. Challenge Info

“Before we get into today’s game, I want to remind you about the awesome opportunity we have to make a commitment to coming to Motion and a chance for you to invite your friends as well!

Each week during our START. NOW. eKidz Challenge, you’ll receive two wristbands – one for you and one to use as an invitation to eKidz for a friend. At the end of the month, you and your friends can earn prizes depending on how many wristbands you’ve earned by coming to church. Last week you got blue wristbands and this week you’ll get cool green ones! Make sure you grab your wristbands on the way out the door today!”

Game Setup – Hul-The-Hoops

“Now we’ve made a commitment to working hard and getting stronger in the new year, we’re going to work on our flexibility and building stronger set of core muscles. We’ll do that in today’s game where you and your Game Group will pass through a Hula Hoop while all holding hands. Yes, that’s right – you and your Game Group will need to pass your entire body through the Hula Hoop and keep doing that until the Hula Hoop makes it’s way back to the starting kid.

The first Game Group to move the Hula Hoop back to the starting person after having all kids step through the Hoop wins the round. Your team MUST continue holding hands throughout the entire game and if your team stop holding hands for any reason, your team is eliminated from the round and must sit down.

Now, I need everyone to find their Game Groups and get ready to play, ‘Hul-The-Hoops!’”

Game – Hul-The-Hoops
