(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 ATTITUDE. Raise your hand if you’re ready to hear all about the Movie of the Day!
(Allowchildren 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 girl who likes to be a doctor of toys and stuffed animals. She figures out how to help toys to make them feel all better! If you know who our Movie of the Day is about, shout her 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.) DOC McSTUFFINS! 

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! Doc McStuffins showed us we can give thanks with our ATTITUDE! Clarence was very grumpy after falling into the water, and Doc wanted to give him a check up. Doc taught Clarence to give thanks with his ATTITUDE by not being grumpy, and by letting Doc take care of him so he didn’t rip his soaking wet card board wings! Raise your hand if you can give thanks with your ATTITUDE, even when you’re grumpy like Clarence!

(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 ATTITUDE! (smile and point to 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 ATTITUDE! (smile and point to mouth)

(Allow time for children to repeat.)

Flash: Great job!

Flash: While watching our Movie of the Day about Doc McStuffins and Clarence, it reminded me of the Bible story we read earlier today

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 was the man in our Bible story today?

(Allow children to answer – “Joseph!”)

Flash: Yes, that’s right!
Flash: Now, let’s THINK (point to head) about the good things from our Bible story. Did Joseph have a thankful ATTITUDE being sad and angry or by working hard and trusting God? 

(Allow children to answer – “Working hard and trusting God!”)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 God and others with your ATTITUDE ?

(Allow children to answer – “Yes!”)

Flash: Wonderful! Joseph showed he was thankful to God and others by working hard and not being sad and angry. And just like Joseph showed he was thankful to God, Clarence the bat had a good ATTITUDE and showed he was thankful to Doc McStuffins for helping him! Just like Clarence and Joseph from our Bible story, we can always give thanks with our ATTITUDE.

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 ATTITUDE! (smile and point to 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]

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

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