VIPs, if you have any questions, find someone in a blue eKidz shirt because we’re here to answer any questions you might have. Right now, we’re going to praise God and thank Him for the great things He’s done for us. Check out the screen.”

Unqualified Episode 1 Setup
“Great job everybody! You can all have a seat.
(wait for kids to be seated)
I mentioned earlier that we’re beginning a brand new series called Unqualified. During this series we’ll be learning that although we may think we can’t do something big or important, God has given us everything we need to do what He’s called us to do. Today, I want to welcome the Family Pastor of Elevation Church to come to the screen. Motion, help me welcome Mr. Frank!”
(initiate applause, walk off stage)
Unqualified Episode 1
Video Outro / Dismissal to eGroups
“Motion, it’s so exciting to know I have been chosen by God and when I know who God says I am, I can do great things through Him!
Right now we’re going to dismiss you to spend time with your eGroup leader where you’ll hear more about how God has chosen you, too. When I call your eGroup leaders’ name, you can stand up and follow them back to your eGroup.”
(call eGroup leaders’ names and dismiss kids)
“Welcome back from your eGroups! Like I said earlier, we’re so happy to have our VIPs with us today. If you’re a VIP, you’ll want to check out the screen because I’ve got some special instructions just for you.
(refer to the screen)
This is a VIP lanyard. If you’re a VIP, you’re wearing this around your neck right now.
[VIP Slide – Lanyard]
When you leave Motion, you need to take that lanyard to the orange tent called the Welcome Area.
[VIP Slide – Welcome Area]
Once you get to the Welcome Area, show them your lanyard and they will give you a gift!
[VIP Slide – Gift]
[VIP Slide – All Combined]
VIP Lanyard + Welcome Area = Gift.”
Game Setup – Paintionary
“In today’s episode of Unqualified, we saw Scott the artist draw a picture that helped us remember Mister Frank’s teaching. In today’s game, you’re going to be an artist like Scott, but you’ll use a few different supplies than what he had.
The rules of the game are pretty simple. How many of you have played Pictionary before?
(wait for kids to respond)
If you’ve played Pictionary, then you already know how to play today’s game! One person from each eGroup will come to the stage and paint a picture on the paper using paint and a paint brush to paint the thing that I tell you without writing words or saying anything to your team. Your team will try to guess what it is and if they get it correct, your team will earn the point for that round. The team with the most points at the end of the game wins.
I need everybody to circle around their group leaders and we’ll get ready to call our first set of painters to the stage!
(allow kids time to get with their eGroups)
Ok, let’s get our first kid from each eGroup up to the stage!”

During Unqualified, you’ll have the opportunity to earn prizes as you attend every week, say your memory verse, and bring your Bible. Your eGroup leader wants to tell you more about how to earn prizes during this series, so circle around them now so you can get all the information you need.”
(help kids circle around their eGroup leaders)
Bring It! Challenge
Dismissal Game Setup
“Hey Motion, your parents will be here soon, but before we go, I want to play one more fun game.
I’m going to put some questions on the screen and I want you to talk to your eGroups and determine which person in your eGroup has the best answer to the question. For example, I may ask you which person in your eGroup has traveled the furthest away. You’ll have a few minutes to talk to your eGroup and find some good answers. Circle around your eGroup leader and we’ll get started!”
