QUEST CINEMAS PRESENTS:
GOD’S BEAUTIFUL GARDEN

Bible Story:

God’s Beautiful Garden
Genesis  3:1-24

Question: 

How do you make the right choice?

Answer:

I ask God! (cup hands around mouth)
God helps me (point up) make the right choice! (two thumbs up)

Memory Verse:

James 1:5
(open hands like a book)
If any of you need wisdom
(tilt head to left)
ask God for it …
(bow head and clasp hands)

SERIES OVERVIEW

God helps us make right choices – all we gotta do is pray, listen, and obey Him. Adam and Eve made a wrong choice by disobeying God. We all make wrong choices sometimes, but we show wisdom when we make the right choice! We can make the right choice by asking God to help us.

(Flash walks on stage, carrying a flashlight.)

Flash: Hello friends and welcome to Quest Cinemas! I’m Flash and I work at the movie theater, making sure friends like you have a great time. You’re in for a real treat today because we are going on a Bible Adventure!

(Looks around and notices all the popcorn buckets in the children’s hands.)

Flash: (Looks around to see all the popcorn buckets in the children’s laps.) Wow! Look at this messy theater! There are popcorn buckets everywhere! You all must have been very hungry today to eat ALL that popcorn. Before the movie starts, let me collect all the trash from the theater. Can all of my Quest friends crumble up their popcorn buckets into a little ball? (Give time for children to crumble their popcorn buckets.) Great! Now, on the count of three I want you to throw them up here and I will sweep them into my pail. Ready? 1, 2, 3!

(Allow children to throw their crumbled popcorn buckets towards the stage.)

Flash: Great job! I’m going to sweep this up before the movie begins. Can everyone count down from 10 to see if I can clean all of the popcorn buckets in time? eGroup Leaders – you count too! Ready? 10 … (Allow eGroup Leaders and children to continue counting.)

(MAKE IT SAFE: Use the broom and dustpan to clean up the popcorn buckets as children and eGroup Leaders count down from 10. Keep the broom facing down, as to not hit any children, volunteers, or video equipment. Start sweeping closer to the children first, to remove the popcorn buckets from being a distraction during the rest of LG.)

Flash: (If you didn’t sweep up all the popcorn, it’s okay! Say “We didn’t get it all, but the theater looks much better!”) Now, let’s get ready for our Bible Adventure. Let’s turn the lights down …

Production: Turn the stage lights down to dimmest setting

(Flash turns on the flashlight.)

Flash: …and get ready for our show!

(MAKE IT SAFE: Flash walks off stage, carrying a flashlight. Make sure to keep the  flashlight pointed towards the ground, instead of in the faces of the children or other volunteers. Use the flashlight to light your path when exiting the stage, so that you don’t trip on any wires or other stage props.)
