(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 WORDS. 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 a super fun loving tiger who lives in a neighborhood of make believe with his friends. He has stripes and wears a red jacket and red shoes. He rides Trolly around town and likes to sing songs. If you know who our Movie of the Day is about, shout his name 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.) DANIEL TIGER!

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.)

(Francis walks on stage, looking around at the castle, noticing the decorations around the room.)

Flash: What a great Movie of the Day! Daniel Tiger showed us we can give thanks with our WORDS! One way Daniel gave thanks with his WORDS was to celebrate Thank You Day by writing thank you notes. Another way he gave thanks was using his WORDS to say “thank you” to his neighbors! Raise your hand if you can say “thank you” or make a thank you note to give thanks to your mom, dad, teacher, or friend!

(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 WORDS! (cup hands around mouth)

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 WORDS! (cup hands around mouth)
(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 Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood, it reminded me of the Bible story we read earlier today about Jesus and the 10 lepers. 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: 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) … how many men were in our Bible story? (Allow children to answer – “10!”)

Flash: Yes, that’s right!

Flash: Now, let’s THINK (point to head) about the good things from our Bible story. After Jesus healed the lepers, how many came back to say “thank you” to Jesus?

(Allow children to answer – “One!”)

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 give thanks to Jesus and others with your WORDS?

(Allow children to answer – “Yes!”)

Flash: Wonderful! When the one leper came back to thank Jesus for what he had done, he was giving thanks by using his WORDS. And just like the leper thanked Jesus, Daniel Tiger used his words to say thank you to his Grandpere and friends! Just like Daniel Tiger and the leper from our Bible story, we can always give thanks with our WORDS.

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 WORDS! (cup hands around mouth)

Flash: Well done! Let’s sing a song about how being thankful makes Jesus happy! 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: If you spend enough time at Quest Cinemas, you’ll learn that verse in no time. And of course, you’ll be thanking God with your WORDS!
