(Walks on stage, carrying a flashlight.)

Flash: Hello movie-goers! It’s good to see you again 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 SERVICE. Raise your hand if you’re ready to hear all about the 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 some really cute puppies who like to help people when they’re in trouble. These six puppies and their leader Ryder think there’s no job too big, or no pup too small to help the people of Adventure Bay! If you know what our Movie of the Day is, 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.) PAW PATROL!

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

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 turns on the flashlight.)

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.)

Video: QCPR Screen Graphic

Flash: What a great Movie of the Day! Rubble was able to serve Paw Patrol and rescue Jake from the snow boulders. Rubble showed how much he cared by serving others. We can be like Rubble and SERVE others to give thanks! Raise your hand if you can give thanks with your SERVICE, just like Rubble in the Paw Patrol! (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 SERVICE! (hands like a book, extended forward)

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 SERVICE! (hands like a book, extended forward)
(Allow time for children to repeat.)

Flash: Great job!

Remember, Think, Follow                                          [1:30]

VIDEO: QCPR Screen Graphic

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

AUDIO: Remember Verse Song                                                                                          [0:39]

(Flash will lead the children in hand motions, encouraging them to sit down while singing.)


Flash:
First, let’s REMEMBER (hold hands like a book) … who was our Bible story about today?
(Allow children to answer – “Jesus!”)

Flash:
Yes, that’s right!

Flash:
Now, let’s THINK (point to head) about the good things from our Bible story. How did Jesus give thanks to his disciples with his SERVICE?
(Allow children to answer – “By washing their feet!”)

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 serve others and God to show you are thankful, like Jesus?
(Allow children to answer – “Yes!”)

Flash: Wonderful! Jesus washed the disciples feet to set an example for how we should show our thankfulness with our SERVICE. And just like Jesus served others, Rubble showed how much he cared by rescuing Jake from the snow boulders. Just like Rubble and Jesus from our Bible story, we can always SERVE others to give thanks!

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 SERVICE! (hands like a book, extended forward))

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]

Memory Verse Review                                                 [1:00]

Flash: Great singing, movie-goers! Stay standing in front of your theater seats because we are going to learn a new memory verse during our time together at Quest Cinemas!

Flash: If you think you can learn our memory verse, then give a high five to a friend standing next to you!

(Allow time for children to give each other high fives.)

Flash: Let’s learn this verse together! It’s all about giving thanks to God! Our verse is . ..

And whatever you do (point out)
whether in word or deed (cup hands around mouth)
do it all (CLAP each word)
in the name of the Lord Jesus, (point up)
giving thanks to God the Father through him. (prayer hands)
Colossians 3:17
(Allow time for children to repeat.)

Flash: Great job! You can sit down in your theater seats now!

(Allow time for children to sit down.)

(Flash pulls out the movie star sunglasses from his pocket and puts them on.)

Flash:
If you spend enough time at Quest Cinemas, you’ll learn that verse in no time. And if you can say your verse next week to your eGroup Leader, you will get a pair of “flashy” movie star sunglasses, like mine!
