GODQUEST Bible Adventure Workshops is a Bible study designed exclusively for Trinity to meet the needs of our own 1st through 5th grade kids! In GODQUEST, the children work on key themes and concepts of a particular Bible story for a period of several weeks. This allows the children time to dig deeper into the meaning of the story learning how to apply its principles to their own lives. Each week, the children rotate to a different workshop. While the main objectives of the study remains constant in each of the workshops, the children get the chance to explore the same story several different ways! Some of the kid-friendly workshops offered over the course of the year include….ART, DRAMA, MUSIC, GAMES, COMPUTERS, COOKING, SCIENCE, STORYTELLING, VIDEO & MORE!
Our Current Study
October 24 – November 21 (No GodQuest on Nov. 28)
In this rotation, the GODQUEST children will learn about Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount, especially focusing on the eight “Beatitudes” that are found in the sermon. The children will understand what behavior Jesus recommended during the Beatitudes speech and modeled during his own life: loving, gentle, kind and peaceful. The children will also learn that in the Beatitudes, Jesus told us that God takes care of us during good times and also in bad times. When bad things do happen God is still with us and often we are stronger as a result.
Large Group Opening: Children will first conduct an experiment to see how we can carry God’s message of love to others. They will watch the story of Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount using the Superbook: Sermon on the Mount video.
Cooking: Children will create Beatitude Snack Sticks to help them remember the important words found in each Beatitude. They will then learn more about what each Beatitude means by listening to the story book, God Blesses Me.
Computer: Children will progress towards understanding of the Beatitudes and think critically about the meaning of each by playing the computer game Play and Learn Children’s Bible CD.
Art: Children will make colorful ribbon sticks with each color representing one of the Beatitudes. They will then create an acrostic using the letters B-E-A-T-I-T-U-D-E in which they will list ways they can put each into action during daily activities.
