Keep Out!

It’s Kwan again! I wanted to give you some tips for taking on this mission. We’re sending you back into the abandoned building where lots of Machines have taken up residence. There’s a defense jammer installed there, so if you don’t have a Gliddle with you, you won’t be able to battle Machines! You have to use your wits and careful gliding to get you out of some sticky situations!

There’s a powerful Machine at the end of the mission. Concentrate on avoiding its blasts and let the Gliddles you find do their work!


Don’t forget to check for secret areas; the overgrowth in the building might have opened up new pathways!

Courageous

September 15, 2019

Theme This Week: COURAGEOUS


Hey Lightgliders!

How is your week going so far? Are you coming to the party in Lightglider Academy this week?  Keep reading for details about it.  

We have been discussing The Far Greater Story of God’s love for us in recent weeks. We are currently learning about redemption and how God bought back our lives with the blood of Jesus. As we understand this truth, we can live with great confidence in God’s never ending love.

And, when we are confident, then we can be courageous!  To be courageous is to be brave. To take risks. To initiate. To try new things. To do hard things. To not be afraid of failing. We can be courageous because our confidence comes from God’s love for us, and not from anything else! 

As Lightgliders, we will not shrink back from difficulties or danger. We will not run away from opportunities to help those in need. 

Be courageous today, Lightgliders! Remember that you are never alone. Nothing can separate you from God’s love.



Here are some activities for you to do and questions to reflect upon this week in Lightgliders. Do these by yourself or with a family member!

Confidence

September 8, 2019

Theme This Week: CONFIDENCE

Hey Gliders!


We’re talking about the Lightglider value of confidence this week. Confidence comes from a strong belief that you are loved. We can live with confidence because we know how loved we are by God. How can we know this? Because of the cross! God sent Jesus to die on the cross to purchase back our lives. Do you realize what this means? It means that we never have to question our value, no matter what anyone says or thinks about us. We are greatly loved by the Creator of the universe!

Never forget how valuable you are. You always have a reason to be confident because of what Jesus did for you. Our confidence does not come from our abilities, our friends, or our moral performance. These things are not dependable. Our confidence comes from God's immeasurable love for us, which was showcased through Jesus at the cross! When we understand that our confidence can be anchored upon the unchanging rock of God's love, we will walk with the courage and boldness necessary to shine in dark places, to stand up for what is right, and to repent when we make mistakes.


Here are some activities for you to do and questions to reflect upon this week in Lightgliders. Do these by yourself or with a family member!


Monday

• Watch the Spark video in green called The Value of Confidence.

• How can a knowledge of God’s love affect our confidence?

Tuesday

• Read Game News in red to see what’s happening inside Lightglider Academy this week.

• Where does your confidence come from?

• What distracts you from resting in God’s love?

Thursday

• What made you smile or laugh today?

Friday

Redemption

September 1, 2019

Theme This Week: REDEMPTION

Hey Lightglider!

Continuing in discussion of The Far Greater Story, we have come to its climax, known as Redemption. God created everything good. Man rebelled against Him. And because of our rebellion, we are separated from God. Without the next part of the story, we are left without hope. 

But God, in His goodness, didn’t leave us hopeless! He sent His Son Jesus to redeem us from our sin. Redemption means to be bought back, or to be freed from captivity. By Jesus living the life we could not live and dying the death we deserved to die because of our sin, He bought us back! 

When Jesus died on the cross, He paid for our sins with His blood, so that we may be restored to God and live forever with Him. This is what it means to be redeemed. We can have abundant and eternal life because of what He did for us! What a gift!

Here are some activities for you to do and questions to reflect upon this week in Lightgliders. Do these by yourself or with a family member!

Monday

• Watch the Spark video in green called Redemption.

• How can we be redeemed by God?

Tuesday

• Read Game News in red to see what’s happening inside Lightglider Academy this week.

• What is redemption?

• Join the Labor Day Party in Lightglider Academy TODAY at 6pm EST / 5pm CST!

• Spend some time praising God for sending Jesus to rescue you!

Thursday

• Compete in the BRAND NEW Game of the Week in purple called Wall Ball.

• How do you show people you care?

Friday

• Decorate the “Redemption” Sticker Page.

• How can being redeemed give you confidence?

• Join the Labor Day Party in Lightglider Academy TODAY at 6pm EST / 5pm CST!

Saturday/Sunday

• Read 1 Peter 2:21-25 in the Bible. 

• How are you healed?

• What are ways to follow in the steps of Jesus?

Entryway

Hi there! My name’s Kwan, and I handle technology at the Academy. I have a mission for you that requires some quick thinking! The Entryway to some sort of abandoned building has a ton of special switches and secrets, so explore every nook and cranny of this level! Rumor has it that there’s also some sort of giant Machine somewhere on the Entryway grounds!

Can you get into the first room of the building? There’s some sort of special switch that you have to find and press… maybe it’s in a hard-to-reach area? Or maybe it’s hidden in plain sight? You’ll have to go to find out!

Repentant & Forgiving

August 25, 2019


Theme This Week: REPENTANT & FORGIVING

Hey Lightglider!

We have been learning about The Far Greater Story inside of Lightgliders in recent weeks, which is the basis for a biblical worldview. We talked about how God is good and has created all things good. However, we have rebelled against Him and His standard for goodness. This is called sin. It causes destruction and separates us from God. Once we recognize that we have rebelled against God, we have the opportunity to be repentant. To repent means to turn away from sin and turn to God, and it requires humility. The Bible tells us to repent of our sins so that they may be wiped away. God forgives us of our sin and puts us in a right relationship with Him.  As we understand that God is willing to forgive us even when we don’t deserve it, we can forgive others as well. So being repentant and forgiving go hand in hand!



Here are some activities for you to do and questions to reflect upon this week in Lightgliders. Do these by yourself or with a family member!


Monday

• Watch the Spark video in green called Repentant and Forgiving.

• What do you need to repent of and who do you need to forgive?

• Do you need to repent of anything specific today?

Thursday

• Compete in the Game of the Week in purple called Remember.

• If you could grow anything in the yard, what would it be?

Friday

• Decorate the “Repentance” Sticker Page!

• Why can we be willing to forgive others?

• Join the Explorer Extravaganza in Lightglider Academy TODAY at 6pm EST / 5pm CST!

Saturday/Sunday

• Read Acts 3:17-20 in the Bible.

• How are your sins wiped out?

Humility

August 18, 2019

Hey Lightgliders!


This week we are discussing the Lightglider value of humility. We learned last week about Rebellion, the second “chapter” of a biblical worldview. Even though God has uniquely created each of us to shine like stars in the universe, we have rebelled against His commands to love Him and love others. The sin and selfishness that began in the Garden of Eden continues today in our hearts and causes division, brokenness, and strife. To acknowledge our sin and rebellion against God requires humility. To live with humility means to view yourself in light of God’s goodness and perfection. When we do this, we realize how far short we fall and how much we need Him. Therefore, only through humility will we live in dependence upon God’s love. Only with humble hearts will we take our focus off ourselves, acknowledge God’s greatness, and truly be able to focus on the needs of others.


Here are some activities for you to do and questions to reflect upon this week in Lightgliders. Do these by yourself or with a family member!


Monday

• Watch the Spark video in green called The Value of Humility.

• What are some ways you can put someone else’s needs before your own?
