Lesson Overview

Not only did Fernando, Tuttle Turtle, and Abee Queen answer questions and earn points while learning lessons from the life of Jacob, they also heard a Bible story and figured out the answer to Guy Handsome’s big question!

This weekend’s BIG QUESTION was:

IS IT RIGHT TO BE THANKFUL?

There is no better way to start off a game show than by receiving free points! Guy Handsome started off the game by giving each contestant ten FREE points! However, the contestants were not thankful for the points and even asked for more! During the physical challenge segment of the show, contestants were to collect candy in their buckets and say “thank you” after collecting each piece of candy. Contestants loved getting the candy, but no one said thank you.

Guy Handsome wanted the contestants to learn the answer to his big question so he shared a Bible story about a man named Jacob and how he was thankful to God! Jacob had a dream where God promised Jacob many things, including land and lots of family. Jacob was so thankful for all God had done he showed God he was thankful by building an altar to worship God and told God ‘thank you!’ From our Bible story we learned “I Will Be Thankful!” and the answer to the BIG QUESTION: yes, we should be thankful!

MEMORY VERSE

During The Big Question, children will be learning a new memory verse about how they can glorify God in everything they do! We began teaching children 1 Corinthians 10:31 this past weekend in Quest. Work with your child at home during dinner time or bed time to recite this verse. Children can recite it in Quest on the weekend of April 12/13 for a prize!

Below are the hand motions we are using each weekend to teach the children 1 Corinthians 10:31. Hand motions give children a visual cue to help remember the words.

Whatever you do, (point out)
do it all (circle hands over head)
for the glory of God. (point up)

Hollywood Highlight Reel – Week 2 #Motion

 

HHRE

March Memory Verse: Proverbs 27:17, “As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.”

Bible Story: Ecclesiastes 4:9-10, 12

Main Point: “Reel” friends help each other

Our second Hollywood highlight came from How to Train Your Dragon and we read in Ecclesiastes how “reel” friends help each other.

Hiccup learned to be a true friend when he overcame his tribe’s prejudice and decided to help Toothless. In Ecclesiastes 4, the Bible teaches us that “two are better than one” because they can help each other. It may be one of the most fundamental aspects of friendship, but our relationships should be helping us. And more than that, we ought to be friends that help those around us.

Rent How to Train Your Dragon this week (good preparation for the sequel, which comes out this summer!), have a movie night, and as you watch it, pay special attention to the friendships that develop.

One way be can be a good friend is by saying hi to our friends. We can say hi by giving our friends high fives! Hide your child’s Give a High Five craft and encourage your toddler to find it. When your toddler finds it, say, “[insert toddler’s name] is a good friend! God says we can be good friends!” and give your toddler a high five. Repeat a few times.

The Big Question | Week 1 #Quest

Bible Story: Esau Loses His Birthright | Genesis 25:19-34
Main Point: I Will Be Patient!
Memory Verse: “Whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.” 1 Corinthians 10:31 (NIV)

Lesson Overview

There’s only one person who could put together the perfect game show and that is Guy Handsome! We played along with Fernando, Tuttle Turtle, and Abee Queen as they answered questions, played games and earned points while learning lessons from the life of Jacob!

 

This weekend, we began a new series called The Big Question where children used the Bible story to figure out the answer to Guy Handsome’s big question!

This weekend’s BIG QUESTION was:

SHOULD I WAIT?

During this week’s episode of “Guy Handsome’s Big Questions,” contestants were being so impatient that Guy couldn’t continue with the show! He had to skip most of the questions as well as the yummy popcorn-eating contest at the end! Guy wanted the contestants to learn the answer to his BIG QUESTION about waiting, so he shared the Bible story of Esau and his younger brother, Jacob. Esau was so hungry he decided to trade his birthright for a bowl of Jacob’s stew. Because of Esau’s impatience, he gave up the land, animals, and money his family was going to give him; Esau should have been patient and made his own food! From our Bible story we learned “I Will Be Patient!” and the answer to the BIG QUESTION: yes, we should wait!
