(Walks on stage, carrying a flashlight.)

Flash: Hello movie-goers! It’s good to see you for our last movie at Quest Cinemas! My name is Flash and I work at the movie theater. Everyone shout “flash” as loud as you can!

(Allow time for children to yell – “Flash!”)

Flash: Great job! If you need anything at the movie theater, you can find me, Flash, or your eGroup Leader, and we can help you out.

Flash: Today at Quest Cinemas we are showing a special Movie of the Day! Today’s Movie of the Day helps us learn how we can be thankful with our ACTIONS. Raise your hand if you’re ready to hear all about our last Movie of the Day!

(Allow children to raise their hands.)

Flash: 
Fantastic! (Cup hand around ear and encourage children to do the same.) Everyone lean in and listen closely.

Flash: (Speaking slowly, but very animated) Today’s Movie of the Day stars characters of all shapes and sizes and they live together on the same street! One character is blue and likes to eat cookies. Another character is purple and likes to count. And another character is red and has his very own goldfish! If you know what our Movie of the Day is, and what street these characters live on, shout it out with me on the count of three … 1 … 2 … 3!


Flash: 
(Shout along with the children and pump fist into the air as you shout.) SESAME STREET!

Flash: 
Great guessing, friends! It looks like we’re ready for our Movie of the Day. Let’s turn the lights down …
(Flash turns on the flashlight.)

Lighting: Cue as soon as Flash calls to turn the lights down, and dim lights to the lowest setting with the lights still on.

Flash: … and get ready for our movie!

(Flash walks off stage, using the flashlight to light the ground as he/she makes his/her way off stage.)

Main Point Review                                                   [0:30]

Video: QCPR Screen Graphic
Flash: What a great Movie of the Day! Rosita got a gift from Elmo who was giving thanks with his ACTIONS. Elmo wanted to tell Rosita how much he loved her, but didn’t want to just tell her. He wanted to show her through his ACTIONS! Raise your hand if you can give thanks with your ACTIONS, just like Elmo on Sesame Street!

(Allow children to raise their hands.)

Flash: Amazing! Today during our Movie of the Day, we learned…

I can give thanks (point to self)
with my ACTIONS! (hands on hips)

Flash: Repeat it after me friends! Ready? 1 … 2 … 3!

I can give thanks (point to self)
(Allow time for children to repeat.)
with my ACTIONS! (hands on hips)
(Allow time for children to repeat.)

Flash: Great job!

Remember, Think, Follow                                          [1:30]

Flash: While watching our Movie of the Day about Elmo and Rosita, it reminded me of the Bible story we read earlier today about Ruth and Naomi. Everyone put on your thinking caps and get ready to remember, think, and follow!

AUDIO: Remember Verse Song                                                                                          [0:39]

Flash: Let’s remember (hold hands like a book) our Bible story, think (point to head) about the good things from our story, and follow (march in place) the example set by the people in the Bible story.

Flash: First, let’s REMEMBER (hold hands like a book) … who were the two women in our Bible story today?

(Allow children to answer – “Ruth and Naomi!”)

Flash: Yes, that’s right!

Flash: Now, let’s THINK (point to head) about the good things from our Bible story. How did Ruth use her ACTIONS to show she was thankful for Naomi?

(Allow children to answer – “By staying with her!”)

Flash: Yes! Great job.

Flash: Now, let’s say how can we FOLLOW (march in place) the example set in our Bible story. Can you show you are thankful with your ACTIONS, like Ruth?

(Allow children to answer – “Yes!”)

Flash: Wonderful! Ruth decided to stay with Naomi and worked for food for them to eat. She showed she was thankful with her ACTIONS. And just like Ruth showed she was thankful, Elmo showed he was thankful for Rosita by giving her a gift to celebrate their friendship! Just like Elmo and Ruth from our Bible story, we can always give thanks with our ACTIONS.

Flash: Let’s say what we’re learning together today at Quest Cinemas! Ready? 1 … 2 … 3!

I can give thanks (point to self)
with my ACTIONS! (hands on hips)

Flash: Well done! Let’s show God we’re thankful by worshipping Him together. Everyone stand up and sing with me!

SONG: Shout                                                                  [2:13]

Flash:Great singing, movie-goers! You can sit down in your theater seats now.

(Allow time for children to sit down.)

Flash: Well friends, after all the fun we’ve had during our time at Quest Cinemas, it’s time for you to leave the theater! Since that was our very last Movie of the Day, it’s time for me to clean up and close the theater!

(Walks over and points to the “Goody Goody Gumdrops” poster.)

Flash: Next time you come to Quest, we’ll go on a new adventure to Grandma Ginger’s House. While we visit we’ll get to play a fun game called Goody Goody Gumdrops! You won’t want to miss it, friends!

Flash:(Waving to the children) I had fun visiting with you and I hope you enjoyed our Movie of the Day today! Remember to give thanks with your ACTIONS! Bye, friends!

(Exits the stage.)
