Faith Quest (grades 1-5)
Quest is the Workshop Rotation program for children in grades one through five
during the Sunday School time at the Kirk.
The Workshop Rotation Model
The Workshop Rotation method is a different approach from traditional Sunday School. Traditional Sunday School teaches using the "sit and listen" method. Rotation workshops change this to "learning by doing."
The same Bible story or concept is taught in the workshops over five weeks. Each Sunday, the groups of children rotate to a new workshop. Kids love the repetition and need it to remember their lessons.
Because each of the workshop leaders teaches through a different style of learning, the kids don't get bored. Instead, this multiple-intelligence approach enhances the learning process. Children come to know God through a variety of ways.
God's word to become part of our children's lives,
Each Sunday morning at 9:45 am the Faith Quest children gather with their Shepherd in the Great Hall. This is a time together for singing, prayer and bringing our offering to God (a mission project is chosen for each unit of study). The Great Hall is a place to be united as Kirk kids.
The children then adjourn to their workshop
for the remainder of the time. Our Faith Quest classes are called Hikers,
Climbers, Trekkers, Adventurers and Flyers.
The Faith Quest Workshops
Visit our colorful, bright and exciting workshop rooms in the Great Hall and Activity Building:
Faith Quest workshops create opportunities to learn by doing. A goal is to ensure familiarity with the key Bible stories and Bible memory verses.
The curriculum also incorporates critical thinking skills in the lessons.
The lesson plan provides links from the Bible to
the present, making the Bible applicable to children's lives. Children need to
learn that the Bible is vital to the way they live their lives. Our mission is
to shape children into active Christians who live the Bible rather than just know
it. For more information, please visit our Faith
Quest curriculum page.
