“God saved us not because of the things we’ve done, but because of His mercy and kindness. Because of that, we need to show kindness to others.

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 a few moments to gather around their eGroup leaders)

First question: Sometimes it’s hard to be kind to people who aren’t kind to us. Why did our main character decide to show kindness to his neighbor? Discuss that now.

(give kids two minutes to answer the question)

Second question: Is there someone you find it difficult to be nice to? If so, why do you feel that?

(give kids two minutes to answer the question)

“Now Motion, I’ve got some pretty big news! Next week we begin our brand new series called jTV! I could tell you all about our awesome main character Jay, but I think it’s better if you meet Jay for yourself. Check out the screen!”



“jTV begins next week and I can’t wait to see what Jay is going to do on his livestream channel! Make sure you come back next week for the beginning of our new series!

Before we launch jTV next week, it’s time for us to play the last game in our Rewind series! Today’s game is going to test your knowledge of some famous movies that came out around the time the VCR, which is where the term ‘rewind’ comes from, was popular.

I’m going to show you a clip from a movie, but I’m actually going to rewind the clip and play it backwards! You and your Game Group will then need to answer a question about what happened in the scene before.

In just a moment, you’ll form a Game Group and I’ll give each Game Group a whiteboard and a marker and you’l write your answers on that board. If your team correctly guesses the answer, then you’ll earn 100 points for that round.

Go ahead and form your Game Groups and then we’ll be around to hand out the whiteboard and markers. After that, we’ll be ready to play ‘Rewind!’”
