Welcome / Series Intro

“Hello and welcome to Motion! I’m so excited you’re here today. My name is _________ and I’m here to make sure you have an awesome time today! We’re going to have an awesome time today because not only do we have an opportunity to learn more about God’s truths, but it’s also the release weekend of our brand new eKidz worship album called Undefeated! Today you’ll be hearing about undefeated and how you can get yourself a copy before you leave today.

But first, we’re in a series called Hey Me that’s all about remembering God’s truths. Last week we learned that God is in control and this week we’re going to hear another exciting teaching from our Family Pastor, Frank Bealer. Motion, put your hands together and help me welcome Mr. Frank to Motion!”

Game Setup – Remember That Tune

“Motion, right now we’re going to continue the fun by playing an awesome game that’s going to test your knowledge of popular music. I hope you remember some of the fun songs you’ve heard on the radio, because you’re going to need it for the game. Check this out!”

*Kids will sit with their eGroup leaders and each group will be given a whiteboard and marker. Slides will appear on the screen and kids will hear music playing. After the song is over, multiple choice slides will be shown and eGroups must figure out the name of the song that was just played. After teams choose an answer, they will hold up their whiteboards and discover what the correct answer was. If a team got the answer right, they will earn 100 points. The team with the most points at the end of the game wins.*

Game – Remember That Tune

Memory Verse Review

“Please have a seat.

(wait for kids to be seated and settled)

“A lot of the amazing songs you just heard actually come off our new eKidz Worship album called Undefeated! In just a few minutes, I’m going to tell you how you can get your very own copy of this awesome album.

Until then, let’s take a look at this series’ memory verse, because Hey Me is all about remembering what God has done for us. Right now we’re going to work on memorizing our Bible verse together. Take a look at the screen and we’ll say it together.

(lead the kids in saying the memory verse on the screen)

Great job, Motion! Let’s keep practicing our memory verse during this series so we can always remember the good things that God has done for us!

Remember It! Setup

“Before your parents get here, I want to play a game. Take 10 seconds and circle around your eGroup leader.

(wait for kids to circle around their eGroup leader)

Since today has been about remembering, I want to play one last memory game with you. I’m going to put an image on the screen for 30 seconds. Your eGroup will need to study the image very carefully because I’m going to pull the image down and your eGroup will be asked to remember details about the picture.

We’ll give each team a whiteboard and a marker and your eGroup leader will write the answer on the board and hold it up. We’ll see which eGroup has the best memory and can remember the most!”

Remember It!

But more importantly, you’re going to walk out of here with a very special gift from Pastor Steven and Holly! As I’ve been mentioning all day, you’ll receive an advance copy of our brand new eKidz album called Undefeated! Motion, put your hands together and let’s thank Pastor Steven and Holly for this incredible gift!

(initiate applause)

On the way out you’ll receive a voucher that you’ll be able to redeem outside for your free gift. Remember, you can use these worship songs to invite your friends and neighbors to eKidz so they can have fun with us next week.

We’re so excited about the release of Undefeated and I know you’ve all been sending in your videos for the Lip Sync Challenge, but now that the album is out, it’s time for us to declare a winner. Check out the screen!

(turn towards screen)

That’s awesome. In just a few minutes you’ll have your own copy of Undefeated, so you don’t have to lip sync to just one song, now you can lip sync to whichever awesome song you want to!

For our last activity, I’ve got a few questions that I’m going to put on the screen and I want you to talk with your eGroup leaders about your favorite part of the day. As you’re talking with your leaders, be looking for your parents as they come to pick you up. Take a look at the screen!”
