eKidz and LOVE Week 2016

LOVE WEEK kicks off at every Elevation location this weekend with on-campus outreach events for the whole family. Following the Worship Experience, pick-up your child from eKidz, head to the Love Week event area, and start serving together!

Go to LoveWeek2016.com and use the filter option to sign up for additional FAMILY-FRIENDLY events throughout the week.

In eKidz this past month, we’ve been singing a new song called Generation For You, a song all about kindness and serving. Check out the music video below. It shows a group of students who chose to live out this idea of being kind and serving those who are often overlooked when they spent time at a special needs facility.

Download the video and make it your family’s theme song for LOVE WEEK 2016!

 


The Force of Kindness – Week 4 #Motion

TFOK Main Slide

Series Memory Verse: Luke 6:31, “Do to others as you would have them to do to you.”
Virtue: Kindness: Showing others they are valuable by how you treat them.
Main Point: Be kind to people who aren’t kind to you.
Bible Story: Ananias Goes to Saul, Acts 9:10-19

Happy 4th of July!

In the fourth week of our The Force of Kindness series, we learned that we need to be kind even to those who aren’t kind to us. In our Clone Wars episode, we watched as Younglings and space pirates, normally enemies, had to be kind to each other and work together against a common enemy: the Separatists.

We then read in the Bible how Ananias was told by God to show kindness to Saul, formerly a persecutor of Christians. Ananias obeyed God and God turned Saul into Paul, who went on to be one of the most important men of the faith.

Talk with your family about people in your life who might not be kind to you but to whom you may need to show kindness. Pray for the strength to do so. Come back next week as we wrap up our series The Force of Kindness!

This week in Motion we also premiered the first promo for our next series, Finders V! Check it out:


Wonder! Clubhouse: All Aboard – Week 4 #Quest

Bible Story: Creation Day 4: Sun, moon, and stars | Genesis 1:14-19
Main Point: God made sun, moon, and stars!
Memory Verse: “You made the world and everything in it.” Psalm 89:11

CreationStation_Banner1_Revised_LAYERS_AllAboard (1)

Lesson Overview
During Wonder Clubhouse: All Aboard we’re heading to Creation Station to make discoveries and learn about the world around us and that God made everything – the sun, moon, stars, planets, clouds, rain, oceans, animals, flowers, you, me … everything!

We learned on day four of creation:

God made (point up)
sun (hold up left hand)
moon, (hold up right hand)
and stars! (hold up both hands)

God put the sun, moon, and stars in the sky so we can have lots of light in the day and just a little bit of light at night. God is so amazing!

This week, remind your child to thank God for giving us the sun, moon, and stars. Talk about how the sun keeps us warm and shows us light during the day, or maybe see if your child can count the stars in the sky. God made all the stars in the sky and the moon. There are so many reasons we need both day and night, so God created the sun, moon, and stars to help separate them. Thank you God!

All Aboard
Each weekend children visit Quest during this eight week series they can collect main point train cars to add to their All Aboard poster. These train cars will help remind them of all the things God created. Children can collect six train cars and bring their poster back to Quest to receive a special prize.

Memory Verse – Psalm 89:11
Join us in helping your child learn our memory verse, Psalm 89:11. Children can recite this verse every week during the series to earn bonus train cars to put on their All Aboard poster.

You (point up)
made (fist on top of fist)
the world (form a circle with arms over head)
and everything in it. (spread arms wide)
Genesis 89:11 (open hands like a book)

Knowing this verse helps children remember to thank God for what He created! Help your child practice this verse. Then ask them to Remember, Think, and Follow to review what we learned this weekend.

1 REMEMBER: What did God create in today’s Bible story? (sun, moon, and stars)
2 THINK: Did God create the sun, moon and stars on day TWO or day FOUR? (day four)
3 FOLLOW: What will you thank God for today that he created on day four? (sun, moon, and stars)


The Force of Kindness – Week 3 #Motion

TFOK Main Slide

Series Memory Verse: Luke 6:31, “Do to others as you would have them to do to you.”
Virtue: Kindness: Showing others they are valuable by how you treat them.
Main Point: Be kind to people who are overlooked.
Bible Story: Least of These, Matthew 25:35-40

This week in our The Force of Kindness series, we learned that we need to be kind to those who are overlooked and saw that exemplified in The Clone Wars when clone troopers helped rescue overlooked people on Ryloth. Of course, Jesus set the ultimate example for us while he was on earth as he cared for the most overlooked and unworthy people of his day.

Throughout this series, we’ve been singing a new song called Generation For You, a song all about kindness and serving. Check out the music video below. It shows a group of students who chose to live out this idea of being kind to those who are overlooked when they went and served at a special needs facility.

Talk with your family about those around you who might be overlooked and plan some opportunities you can take to show kindness to them.


Wonder! Clubhouse All Aboard – Week 3 #Quest

Bible Story: Creation Day 3: Land, Plants, and Sea | Genesis 1:9-13
Main Point: God made land, plants, and sea!
Memory Verse: “You made the world and everything in it.” Psalm 89:11

CreationStation_Banner1_Revised_LAYERS_AllAboard (1)

Lesson Overview
During Wonder Clubhouse: All Aboard we’re heading to Creation Station to make discoveries and learn about the world around us and that God made everything – the sun, moon, stars, planets, clouds, rain, oceans, animals, flowers, you, me … everything!

We learned on day three of creation:

God made (point up)
land, (march)
plants, (pretend to dig)
and sea. (pretend to swim)

God separated the land from the ocean, formed giant mountains, and created so many kinds of plants. God is so amazing!

This week, remind your child to thank God for giving us land, plants and sea. Because God created the land, plants, and sea, we have dry ground to live on, fruits and vegetables to eat, and oceans to explore! Go outside with your child and smell a flower, sit under a shady tree, or hike up a mountain and thank God for what He created!

All Aboard
Each weekend children visit Quest during this eight week series they can collect main point train cars to add to their All Aboard poster. These train cars will help remind them of all the things God created. Children can collect six train cars and bring their poster back to Quest to receive a special prize.
