Overboard – Week 2 #Motion

012014_eKidz_Quest_ABTE_MainGraphic

Series Memory Verse: Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His love endures forever. Psalm 107:1 (NIV)
Main Point: Remember how others have helped!
Bible Story: Paul Remembers People, Romans 16:1-15

 

This was the second week of our Overboard series. When we last left Ollie, he was being approached by some local lake bullies. Check out what happened next:
Ollie ran into a tough situation with the bully Zane but Nigel had an important reminder for him – one way to keep our gratitude strong is to remember how others have helped. Ollie was so focused on his personal situation that he forgot how much his parents, friends, and even aunt and uncle had helped him.

 

As Paul was wrapping up the book of Romans, he took the time to thank a number of people who had helped him. In our lives, it is important for us to figure out how to remember those who have helped us. Talk with your family about those people in your lives and how you can express gratitude for them.

Camp Wannastay – Week 8 #Quest

Bible Story: Nehemiah 1-3; 4: 1-6; 6:15-16; 12:27; 42 | Nehemiah Rebuilds The Walls
Main Point: Leaders do what’s right!
Memory Verse: “Remember your leaders who taught you the word of God. Think of all the good that has come from their lives, and follow the example of their faith.”  Hebrews 13:7

We had so much fun celebrating White Warthog day together at Camp Wannastay! This week, our friend Brownie Bear taught us about a man named Nehemiah. After hearing about the walls of his hometown being torn down, Nehemiah returned to fix the walls with the people in his hometown. Nehemiah was a leader because he did what was right, and we can be a leader like Nehemiah, too! We can do what is right by sharing toys, hold open doors for people, or doing chores without complaining.


We are partnering with Newspring Church and using their Camp Wannstay video curriculum.To learn more about KidSpring, visit https://newspring.cc/kidspring.

We can be a leader to our friends, family, and others by doing what is right. Look for ways to do what is right every day!

This week, we received camp mail from our friend White Warthog about how was a leader by doing what was right.

Camp Canteen
Join us in helping your child learn Hebrews 13:7, our camp memory verse. Children can recite this verse each week during Camp Wannastay to collect a prize from the Camp Canteen.

Remember your leaders (point to head and say “bing”)
who taught you the word of God. (open hands like a book)
Think of all the good (two thumbs up)
that has come from their lives, (spread arms wide)
and follow the example (cup hands around mouth while whispering)
of their faith. (shout and pump fist in the air)

Learning this verse helps us learn how to be better leaders, like those in the Bible stories we read each week. Practice your verse with your camper then ask your child to Remember, Think, and Follow to review what we learned this weekend:

  1. Remember: Who were the leaders you learned about at Camp Wannastay? (Nehemiah)
  2. Think: How did Nehemiah do what’s right? (He fixed the walls.)
  3. Follow: How can you be a leader like Nehemiah? (help others, do what’s right)

Overboard – Week 1 #Motion

012014_eKidz_Quest_ABTE_MainGraphic

Series Memory Verse: Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His love endures forever. Psalm 107:1 (NIV)
Main Point: Have an attitude of gratitude!
Bible Story: Job is Grateful, Job 1:21b-22

We began a brand new series this week called Overboard, where we saw our friend Ollie Rollins get sent to his eccentric aunt and uncle’s house for the summer. Check out how it got started in episode one:

Ollie did not have a good attitude about the summer that is ahead of him. The butler, Nigel, encouraged him to have an attitude of gratitude and to see the blessings even though the situation wasn’t his preference.

We then read in the Bible about Job, a man who faced an incredibly difficult situation but still chose to have an attitude of gratitude and give praise to God. Following his example, we can be grateful no matter what we face. Talk with your family about situations when you don’t feel grateful and pray that God would empower you to have an attitude of gratitude.

During Overboard, we’re learning giving thanks no matter what happens can be hard, especially when we are having a bad day or things don’t go the way we expected them to.

 

The Bible tells us we should show gratitude to God. Psalm 107:1 says to give thanks to God because He is good to us and will always love us! Download the memory verse backgrounds for your phone or computer and join us in helping your child learn how important it is to show gratitude to God.

 

Give thanks to the Lord,
for He is good; 
His love endures forever.
Psalm 107:1

Camp Wannastay – Week 7 #Quest

Bible Story: Acts 6:1-7 | Food For Widows
Main Point: Leaders help!
Memory Verse: “Remember your leaders who taught you the word of God. Think of all the good that has come from their lives, and follow the example of their faith.”  Hebrews 13:7

We had so much fun this week learning how leaders help and just in time for LOVE WEEK! Love Week is a special time every year where our church shows love for our communities by serving and helping a lot of people.

One way we can be leaders who help is by collecting books for kids during Love Week! Join us as we partner with Promising Pages to collect books and eliminate illiteracy.

Collect new or gently used books from around your house. Bring your collected books back to eKidz next weekend for your service to be counted! Every child who participates will receive a Love Week Band.

 


We are partnering with Newspring Church and using their Camp Wannstay video curriculum.To learn more about KidSpring, visit https://newspring.cc/kidspring.

We can set a good example by helping others, just like the people in our Bible story were leaders because they helped the women get food.

This week, we received a camp postcard from our friend White Warthog. Make sure your child wears WHITE and joins us in Quest this weekend to celebrate White Warthog Day! We can’t wait to see you there!
