#SelfieSwitch – Episode 5 #Motion

eKidz_Motion_SSW-SeriesGraphic

Series Memory Verse: Psalm 139:14, “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.”

Bible Story: The Greatest Commandment, Matthew 22:34-40

Main Point: God Made Me to Honor

This week we wrapped up our #SelfieSwitch series! Mitch and Ollie are ready for the skateboard competition – their best chance to earn the money needed to fix the machine and get switched back. Let’s find out what happens!

What a crazy finish! Violet came through and saved the day, helping pull off an amazing switch! As they were reflecting on all they had learned, Mitch and Ollie showed a new appreciation for each other. It seems that they will treat each other differently moving forward. They learned the importance of showing honor toward one another.

In our Bible passage today, we heard Jesus teach on honor. Some people asked him what the most important commandment was, and he eloquently and wisely described what it means to honor God and others.

As you’re leading your family and growing in Christ, it’s always helpful to keep in mind what Jesus considered most important – loving and honoring God and others. Make sure that your lives are reflecting that priority and talk with your family about ways you can continue to grow in that.



Sunny The Cloud | Week 9 #Quest

Lesson Overview

Our friend Sunny the Cloud was waiting up high in the sky for us, but Sunny wasn’t the only one up high in the sky! We saw Black Bear too, wanting to play a fun cloud game. We saw a black raspberry, a basketball, and even a cloud which looked like a rainbow!
 

When we looked down to check in with our friends Sydney and Shelby on the Two By Two cruise ship, we learned their cruise was almost over! It was Sydney and Shelby’s last day on the cruise, but before leaving the ship, Aunt Jessie told Sydney and Shelby they should thank someone. Sydney and Shelby ran all around the ship to tell the crew of the Two By Two “thank you,” but they were still missing someone. Aunt Jessie took Sydney and Shelby to the Two By Two cruise ship theater one last time so they could learn who they should thank for everything!

During the Bible story, we learned God chose to save Noah and his family when He flooded the earth. After Noah and his family spent a long time on the boat, the water finally dried up and Noah and his family got off the boat. When they got off the boat, Noah built an alter to thank God for protecting him and his family. God was pleased with Noah and made a promise to never flood the earth again. As a sign of this promise, God put a rainbow in the sky to remind everyone that He would never flood the earth again.  Sydney, Shelby, and all of Quest learned they should thank GOD for everything!

Memory Verse

We are so proud of all the Quest children who have recited their memory verse during the series and who will recite it this weekend!

This is love (cross arms over chest)
for God: (point up)
to keep (point to head)
his commands. (two thumbs up)
1 John 5:3a (NIV)

Children will have the opportunity to say the memory verse one last time this weekend for a Sunny pop!


#SelfieSwitch – Episode 4 #Motion

eKidz_Motion_SSW-SeriesGraphic

Series Memory Verse: Psalm 139:14, “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.”

Bible Story: Moses Forgives Miriam, Numbers 12:1-5, 9-13, 15

Main Point: God Made Me to Forgive

In our fourth week of #SelfieSwitch, we learned that God made us to forgive. We read in the Bible how Moses forgave Miriam and we watched to see if Mitch and Ollie could put their differences aside in order to try to get switched back to their actual bodies. See what happens in this week’s episode:

Mitch and Ollie finally started to work together – all in an effort to earn the money they need to get Violet the part needed to switch them back! In our lives, it’s very difficult to forgive someone who has hurt us and work together with people very different than us, but it’s a crucial part of being a Christian. Talk with your family this week about people they may need to forgive or with whom they may need to make a better effort to cooperate. And then take action!

And make sure to come back next week to see the exciting conclusion of #SelfieSwitch!


Sunny The Cloud | Week 8 #Quest

Bible Story: Noah Left The Ark | Genesis 8:13-18
Main Point: I Will Obey Right Away!
Memory Verse: “This is love for God: to keep his commands.” 1 John 5:3a (NIV)

eKidz_Quest_STCL_MainGraphicLesson Overview

It was a rainy day in Quest as we traveled high in the sky to meet up with our friend Sunny the Cloud. But the rain cleared up just in time and we were able to play a fun game with our friend Orange Otter! When we were finishing up our cloud game we heard the horn of the Two By Two cruise ship – it was sailing our way! Orange Otter, Sunny the Cloud, and all of Quest looked down from the clouds and saw our friends Sydney and Shelby on the deck below.

Sydney and Shelby were talking about all the fun things they were going to do on the ship when Aunt Jessie arrived with an important message. Aunt Jessie needed Sydney and Shelby to bring the message to First Mate Shelley right away! Sydney and Shelby were so excited about the fun things they were planning to do they stopped at each deck to have fun as they made their way to see First Mate Shelley on the top deck; they had a noodle fight on the Pool Deck, went down water slides, and ate yummy food at the buffet. But as they were having fun, the Two By Two cruise hit a reef hidden in the water and got stuck! To keep everyone safe, First Mate Shelley ordered everyone to head to the Two By Two cruise ship theater for the daily Bible story.

While in the theater we learned about a man named Noah. Noah was on a big boat with his family and two of every animal for a very long time! When the rain stopped and the earth was no longer flooded, God told Noah and his family to get off the boat and Noah obeyed God right away. God then told Noah to release all of the animals so they could start over and make their own families. Noah did this right away, too, because he wanted to obey God! Just like Noah obeyed God right away, Sydney, Shelby, and Quest children learned “I Will Obey Right Away!”

Memory Verse

Has your child been able to say the Quest memory verse all by themselves? We love hearing Quest children recite God’s Word from memory each and every weekend in eKidz. Learning scripture with your child is a great way for you to be involved in building a spiritual foundation of faith in your child.

This is love (cross arms over chest)
for God: (point up)
to keep (point to head)
his commands. (two thumbs up)
1 John 5:3a (NIV)

Children will have the opportunity to say the memory verse every weekend of the series for a Sunny pop!
