“Welcome to Motion and welcome to the final week of our series jTV – Forgiveness in Real Life! This month we’ve been learning all about forgiveness and how we can show it, even when people may have hurt us. But what is forgiveness and why is it so important? Let’s take a look at the scene and find out.
Forgiveness: Showing love to someone who has hurt you.

Right now, Jay is trying to ask his friends DeeDee and Aaron for forgiveness after he pulled some pretty mean pranks and hurt people who were close to him. Now, it’s the final step in Project: Forgive Jay, so let’s find out what happens in the final episode of jTV!”

“Motion, what an amazing end to this awesome series about forgiveness! I’m so glad DeeDee and Aaron were able to forgive Jay, but I’m also glad that Jay felt it was important to ask for forgiveness from the people he hurt.

Right now it’s time for us to answer a few questions about today’s Bible Story and the episode of jTV we just watched. Circle around your eGroup leaders now!

(give kids a few moments to gather around their eGroup leaders)

First question: It must have been very difficult for DeeDee and Aaron to forgive Jay. Why do you think they forgave him?

(give kids two minutes to answer the question)

Second question: When was the last time you had to ask someone for forgiveness? Was this easy or hard to do?

(give kids two minutes to answer the question)

Final question: Who do you need to seek forgiveness from? Is there someone you’ve been mean to that you owe an apology?”

(give kids two minutes to answer the question)

Worship Intro

“Motion, you had some great answers today! Forgiveness is so important to us because God loves us enough to forgive our sins, or the wrong things we’ve done. That’s why He sent His son, Jesus. Today, we’re going to sing and celebrate that God loves us and has forgiven us. Everyone stand to your feet as we dance and sing, ‘Brighter!’”

Worship Song – Brighter

Worship Song – Wake

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)


I’m Internet Famous!

“Welcome back, Motion! I know you had a great time in eGroup, and now it’s time for us to continue the fun with a little game I like to call, ‘Internet Famous.’ In jTV, Jay is trying to become an internet LiveStreaming star, but there are plenty of people out there who have already become internet famous, for better or for worse.

Each week of jTV I’m going to show you a picture of a person who is internet famous. Then, I’m going to ask you a question about why this person is internet famous. To answer the question, you’ll simply move from one side of the room to the other based on your answer.

Once we determine why this person is famous, I’ll show you a clip of what this person did to become famous. Then, I’ll pause the clip and ask you to determine what happens next in the clip.

Take a look at the screen and check out this girl.

(refer to the slide on the screen)

Her name is Ashley and now you’ll need to decide what she got famous for. If you think she’s a famous college football cheerleader, then you’ll move to my right. If you think she’s a famous college athletics photographer, then move to my left. Everyone make a choice now!

(wait for kids to choose a side of the room)

Ok, the correct answer is she’s a famous college photographer! If you got that right, great job! But why does that make her famous? Let’s take a look at the screen and let’s see what we can find out.

(watch the video)

Ok, now that the video’s paused, you’ve got to decide what happens next. If you think she’s going to get run over by a football player, move to my left. If you think she’s going to get hit by the football, move to my right. Choose now!

(have kids choose their sides)

Let’s watch the rest of the clip!

(watch the rest of the video)

If you guessed she was going to get hit by the football, you’re right! Now fortunately for Ashley, she’s ok and was a pretty good sport about the whole thing. She may have made national television and been seen over 4 million times, but at least she can smile about the whole thing. In fact, let’s watch the clip from TV where some announcers were talking about this. Check this out.

(watch the final clip)

Great job playing I’m Internet Famous throughout this series, Motion! You’ve all done an incredible job! Now, it’s time to welcome another famous group of people!”


“I wanted to take a moment and welcome our VIPs who are here with us for the first time today! 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.

(refer to the screen)

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.

Bring It! Challenge

GAME SETUP – Biggest Follower

“Great job during the Bring It! Challenge, Motion! Make sure you’re bringing your Bible and studying your memory verse so you can earn those Bring It! Challenge prizes! Now, it’s time for us to play today’s game!

In jTV, Jay has been working hard to make sure people follow his channel. If you follow someone’s channel, you’re their follower! It’s a pretty simple concept. Well in today’s game, you’re going to be working to win games of j-T-V and gain as many followers as you can.

This game looks a lot like Paper, Rock, Scissors and here’s how to play. You and your opponent will say ‘jTV, 1,2,3.’ After you say that, you’’ use your hands to make the sign you want to use. If you show the letter ‘J,’ you’ll use your index and thumb to make a ‘J.’ If you show a ‘T,’ you’ll do a little ‘Timeout’ move with your two hands. If you show a ‘V,’ you’ll make a peace sign with your first two fingers. Easy.

In this game, ‘J’ beats ‘T’. ‘T’ beats ‘V.’ ‘V’ beats ‘J.’ I’ll put a picture on the screen to help you remember that, too.

You’ll find someone to play against and then you’ll play three times. The person who wins two out the three rounds wins the match. Now here’s the fun part: if you do get beat, that means your new job is to become the biggest follower of the person who defeated you. So you’ll be screaming their name, jumping up and down and just go nuts for this person. Then, if you win again, you gain all of the followers of the person you beat.

At the end of the game, we’re going to have a showdown with two people and tons of screaming fans to see who’s the champion of jTV. Everyone find a partner and let’s get ready to play, ‘Biggest Follower!’”
