Welcome / Video Intro

“Welcome to Motion! It’s time for The Big Give, our series all about generosity! But what is generosity? Take a look at the screen and let’s find out together! I’ll say it once and then I want you all to say it with me. Take a look at the screen:

Generosity: Making someone’s day by giving something away.

Say that with me now.

Great job, Motion! It’s time for us to check out the screen and learn more about what it means to show generosity. Take a look.”

Connect Questions

“The Bible says that we can be rich in doing good works, or, in being generous. We don’t have to have a lot of things to be rich – we’re rich when give to others, just like God gave his Son Jesus to us.

Now, let’s answer a few questions about today’s Bible story and the video we watched. Circle around your eGroup leaders now!

(give kids time to circle around eGroup leaders)

First question: In today’s Bible story, we learned about a different way to be rich. What way was that? Discuss that now.

(give kids two minutes to answer the question)

Second question: When you’re generous to somebody, how does it make you feel? How do you think it makes them feel? Discuss that now.

(give kids two minutes to answer the question)

Now Motion, it’s time for our final question: What’s something kind you can do for someone else this week? When will you do that? Discuss that with your eGroup now.”

(give kids two minutes to answer the question)

Worship Intro

“Great job, everybody! I heard some incredible answers coming from your eGroups today. We should always be willing to show generosity to others, because God was generous when He gave us Jesus. It’s time to celebrate God’s generosity by singing songs and praising Him. Stand to your feet as we sing, ‘Noel.’”

Worship Song – Noel

Worship Song – Angels We Have Heard

Dismissal To eGroups

“Great job, Motion! Everybody stay standing because it’s time for us to head back to our eGroups. When I call your eGroup leaders’ name, you can follow them back.”

(dismiss kids back to eGroups)


VIP Welcome

“Welcome back from your eGroups! Before we continue, I wanted to take a moment and welcome some very special guests who came to visit us for the first time. Motion, help me welcome our VIPs!

(initiate applause)

If it’s your first time here, we consider you a VIP – a very important person! VIPs, turn your attention to the screen because I’ve got some special instructions just for you.

This is a VIP lanyard. If you’re a VIP, you’re wearing this around your neck right now.

When you leave Motion, you need to take that lanyard to the __________ tent called the Welcome Area.

Game Setup – Reindeer Games

“Now Motion, it’s time for today’s game!

One of your group members will be dressed up like a reindeer and put on these AMAZING reindeer antlers. The rest of the team will form a line a few feet away from the person wearing the antlers, and then each kid in line will toss one of these foam rings…

(hold up a foam ring)

…and try to get it to land on one of the antlers. Each kid will get one throw and then go to the back of the line and let the next kid make their toss.

Each Game Group will get 10 tosses total, and at the end of each round we’ll tally up which Game Group got the most points. Then, we’ll swap out the kid that’s the reindeer, bring all of the rings back to the front of the line, and then play again. Motion, form your Game Groups, or groups of 10, and let’s play, Reindeer Games!”
