Over the June/July school holidays, my Church hosts a Kids Holiday Club as an outreach for those in years K-6. This year, I was tasked with the responsibility of the daily drama, with the aim to engage the kids with an exciting story, and allude to the biblical teachings of each day.
The adventures of Maddie and Emily is a short, 3 part series following a duo of workers who have been tasked with building a shelter for the Kids Holiday Club (Water World). Unfortunately, the pair aren’t great when it comes to recognising how powerful their commander is, and don’t always listen to, or put trust in what he has to say.
The film script was written by myself, with the help from Ben and Robert. Shoutout to Daniel and Ben for helping out with general filming stuff on the days – Stage Crew with the world as the stage if you will. Props to the actors – Emily and Maddie. Editing done (the night before each screening) by myself.
Overall memory verse: John 8:12 (NLT) Jesus spoke to the people once more and said, “I am the light of the world. If you follow me, you won’t have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life.”
Day 1 story: Mark 4:38-41 (NIV) Jesus Calms the Storm
35 That day when evening came, he said to his disciples, “Let us go over to the other side.” 36 Leaving the crowd behind, they took him along, just as he was, in the boat. There were also other boats with him. 37 A furious squall came up, and the waves broke over the boat, so that it was nearly swamped. 38 Jesus was in the stern, sleeping on a cushion. The disciples woke him and said to him, “Teacher, don’t you care if we drown?”
39 He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Quiet! Be still!” Then the wind died down and it was completely calm.
40 He said to his disciples, “Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?”
41 They were terrified and asked each other, “Who is this? Even the wind and the waves obey him!”
