Beats – Episode 3 #Motion

Bible Story: Jesus Stops an Argument, Mark 9:33-35

Beat of the Week: “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.” Matthew 5:9

We studied another of Jesus’ Beatitudes this week and got to meet two guys who are living it out. Check out this week’s episode:

Jesus says “Blessed are the peacemakers” and Pablo and Tresor do their best to live that out on the soccer field. When we bring peace to the situations we encounter, we are acting exactly like Jesus.

This is an excellent reminder for our families – not only in sports, but in every situation we encounter.  Talk with your kids about the opportunities they face and how they can be a peacemaker, and then celebrate the difference they’ve made! Jesus calls you children of God!


The Animal Adventurers | Week 2 #Quest

Bible Story: Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego | Daniel 3
Main Point: Teammates Trust!
Memory Verse: “Two people are better than one. They can help each other in everything they do.” Ecclesiastes 4:9 (NIrV)

Lesson Overview
We joined Troop 49 in the great outdoors as we tried to earn our second Animal Adventurer badge this weekend, the Yellow Yak badge! Grab your Teal Tiger Talkie and get ready for a special message from Troop Master Mickey …

After Troop Master Mickey told Troop 49 what they needed to do to earn the Yellow Yak badge, we were ready to start the adventure. See how Troop 49 trusted each other and helped each other cross a river without using a boat …

Troop 49 trusted each other and made sure each troop member was able to make it to the other side of the Great Big River. Because the teammates showed trust, they earned the Yellow Yak badge!

Not only did we earn our Yellow Yak badge, we learned “Teammates Trust!” and we can be great teammates like Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego.

Troop 49 Animal Adventurer Badges

During The Animal Adventurers series, Quest children will become part of Troop 49! Each week children attend Quest, they will earn a different Quest Animal Adventurer badge.

Beats – Episode 2 #Motion

Bible Story: Jesus Teaches about Persecution, John 15:18-21

Beat of the Week: “Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” Matthew 5:10

In our second week of the “Beats” series, we looked at another of Jesus’ Beatitudes. To hear more about it, here’s our Family Pastor, Frank Bealer:

What a great reminder that Jesus is for us! When we face opposition for standing up for what’s right, Jesus promises to take care of us. Jaiden showed us a great model of how to focus on God’s opinion of us rather than the voices around us.

With the school year getting started, maintain open communication with your kids about the voices they’re encountering at school and be ready to encourage them with God’s truth.


Bringing “Beats” Home

 
During the Beats series in Motion we are playing a fun game (like Guitar Hero / RockBand) that let’s all of the kids create their own beat. Give it a try as a family. For extra fun, each of you try to do two of the sounds at the same time

4 Different Sounds:

Clap

Stomp

Whoo!

Chhh


The Animal Adventurers | Week 1 #Quest

Bible Story: Ruth 1-4 | Ruth and Naomi
Main Point: Teammates Love!
Memory Verse: “Two people, are better than one. They can help each other in everything they do.” Ecclesiastes 4:9 (NIrV)

eKidz_Quest_TAAD_MainGraphic-01Lesson Overview

Join the Animal Adventurers Troop 49 as they explore the great outdoors on their quest to earn all six Animal Adventurer badges. We’ll build a fire, hike a mountain, and even make yummy s’mores! Through Troop Master Mickey’s training and from stories in the Bible, Troop 49 will learn how working together as a team is better than working alone.

 
This weekend after Troop Master Mickey challenged Troop 49 to build a fire, Carter suggested the troops split up in the woods to find firewood. Each troop member didn’t find any firewood and were upset Carter suggested they split up in the first place. Troop Master Mickey stepped in to make sure Troop 49 remembered a special part of the Scout Code: I will love! Troop Master Mickey had his friend Marty the Moose teach children and Troop 49 about two people in the Bible who showed love to one another – Ruth and Naomi. Once Troop 49 heard how Ruth showed love to Naomi in our Bible story, they learned “Teammates Love!” All of the troops in Troop 49 learned they should be great teammates and show love!

Troop 49

During The Animal Adventurers series, Quest children will become part of Troop 49! Each week children attend Quest, they will earn Quest animal badges alongside their Troop 49 friends Barry, Stacey, Carter, and Deena!
