eKidz_Quest_TBQU_MainGraphic_UPDATE-01Lesson Overview

Game contestants Fernando, Tuttle Turtle, and Abee Queen not only answered questions and earned points while competing on The Big Question, they also heard a Bible story and figured out the answer to Guy Handsome’s big question!

This weekend’s BIG QUESTION was:

SHOULD I SAY I’M SORRY?

During the physical challenge, contestants had to carry a bucket of balls across the stage to the finish line. All the contestants bumped into each other and no one finished the physical challenge. Guy Handsome wanted everyone to say “I’m sorry!” to each other, but no one did! Guy decided to share the Bible story about Jacob and his brother Esau. Jacob did a foolish thing when he tricked his brother Esau, and because of that he had to move away.

Years later, Jacob was returning home and heard Esau was coming to meet him. Jacob became very afraid and decided to send gifts to Esau to say “I’m sorry.” When Esau met Jacob, Jacob said he was sorry for what he had done. Esau forgave Jacob and from our Bible story we learned “I Will Say I’m Sorry!” and the answer to the BIG QUESTION: yes, we should say I’m sorry!

During The Big Question, children will be learning a memory verse about how they can glorify God in everything they do! Children can recite this verse next weekend in Quest (the weekend of April 12/13) for a prize!

Hollywood Highlight Reel – Week 3 #Motion

HHRE

 

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

Bible Story: Ephesians 4:31-32

Main Point: “Reel” friends forgive each other

This weekend we watched a Hollywood Highlight Reel from Wreck-It Ralph and studied Ephesians 4:31-32. In Wreck-It Ralph, we saw Ralph break Vanellope’s car and then have to ask forgiveness for it. Vanellope acted as a reel friend and forgave him and together they restored the game.

Ephesians 4 explains that our call to forgive each other comes directly from the example Christ set by dying for us and purchasing our forgiveness.

Rent Wreck-It Ralph this week, have a fun movie night, and talk about other aspects of Ralph and Vanellope’s friendship.

The Big Question | Week 2 #Quest

Bible Story: Jacob’s Dream | Genesis 28:10-22
Main Point: I Will Be Thankful!
Memory Verse: “Whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.” 1 Corinthians 10:31 (NIV)

eKidz_Quest_TBQU_MainGraphic_UPDATE-01
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.
