Weekend Wrap-Up

1st – 5th Grade

Monthly Virtue: Wisdom – learning to make better choices.
Monthly Bible Verse: “So I turned my mind to understand, to investigate, and to search out wisdom.”  Ecclesiastes 7:25a
Bible Story: Rehoboam chose poorly (seek advice and use it) :: 1 Kings 12:6-11
Lesson Overview: 

During the Oldman  vs Wild series, we have learned that wisdom is learning to make wise choices. In our final week learning about wisdom, we read in 1 Kings about Rehoboam, a king who acted wise at first by asking for advice, but then chose to ignore the wisdom that he was given.

God wants us to seek out wisdom – from the Bible, through prayer, and by asking people that we trust who love God.  But it’s not enough for us to ask for wisdom – we need to use the advice we get.

Did Dr. Oldman win the bet with his brother and survive the wild?  Watch the final episode of Oldman vs. Wild tomorrow on the eKidz site!

WEEKEND RESOURCE:  Anthony Shaheen’s Field Guide

3 years – Kindergarten

Bible Story: Genesis 1:14-19, Day 4 of Creation
Main Point: “God Made The Sun, Moon, and Stars!”
Memory Verse: “God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.” – Genesis 1:31a
Lesson Overview:

Profesor Morty was at it again, making people think that the the sun, moon, and stars were bad by creating the “super-duper-the-moon-and-stars-are-scary-anator.”


But once Roanoke and Swanson learned of Professor Morty’s evil scheme, they shared the Bible story about how God created the sun, moon, and stars and stopped Professor Morty!

Quest kids received their fourth puzzle piece this week with the words “God Made the Sun, Moon, and Stars” on the back of it. After your child puts the puzzle piece on your refrigerator at home, ask your child the following questions about what they learned:

    • Who created the sun, moon, and stars? (God)
    • When God created the sun, moon, and stars, He said that they were ________? (Good)
    • What is one thing you love to do when it’s sunny outside? (Play in the yard, take a walk, go to the beach)
    • What is one thing you love to do when the moon and stars are out? (Go to sleep, go camping with my family)

During our Roanoke Jones Cafe series, your chid has been collecting a puzzle piece each week, trying to figure out what the secret picture is forming.  Four of the eight puzzle pieces have been released – ask your child’s Quest leader for any missing puzzle pieces.

6 weeks – 2 years

Practice praying with your toddler!  Sing this song throughout the day – before breakfast, during playtime, when driving to the grocery store, even before bed!

(to the tune Mary Had a Little Lamb)

I can talk and pray to God, pray to God, pray to God.

I can talk and pray to God.  It’s great to pray all day.

I can pray and talk to God, talk to God, talk to God.

I can pray and talk to God.  It’s great to pray all day.
