Kids’ Quest Class Flex Options


Kids’ Quest Catechism Club is a curriculum that teaches children Bible truths through simple questions and answers. This curriculum is flexible and promotes memorization using components of Bible teaching, music, skits, activities, service projects and more.

Kids’ Quest was designed to meet the request of Children’s Ministry leaders and teachers for a school-year catechism program that taught First Catechism. However, many churches have customized the program to fit their own scheduling needs. Hopefully, you can use some of the following ideas from current users:

Scheduling Options

ONE YEAR PROGRAM – September through June (school year)

September – November January – March April – June
Beginning, Volume 1 Beginning, Volume 2 Beginning, Volume 3
Elementary, Volume 1 Elementary, Volume 2 Elementary, Volume 3

 

TWO YEAR PROGRAM – September through June (school year)

*YEAR ONE – All students start with Beginning

September – November January – March April – June
Beginning, Volume 1 Beginning, Volume 2 Beginning, Volume 3

*YEAR TWO – Beginning students from first year go into Elementary. Start a new Beginning class for 4- and 5-year-olds.

September – November January – March April – June
Elementary, Volume 1 Elementary, Volume 2 Elementary, Volume 3

 

TWO YEAR USING BOTH DEPARTMENTS – Two-year program using both departments, two weeks for each lesson (the first week covering the lesson, the second week reviewing the lesson and concentrating on memorization/recitation.

*YEAR ONE

September – November January – March April – June
Half of Volume 1 Beginning & Elementary Half of Volume 1 Beginning & Elementary Half of Volume 2 Beginning & Elementary

*YEAR TWO

September – November January – March April – June
Beginning & Elementary, Review & Half of Volume 2 Beginning & Elementary, Half of Volume 3 Beginning & Elementary, Half of Volume 3

 

Program Planning

• If your church only did Beginning Kids’ Quest this year, add Elementary Kids’ Quest for those who completed Beginning and elementary-aged children. Continue Beginning classes for 4- and 5-year-olds who did not participate this year.

• Plan to do each department for a certain age group every year. For example, do Beginning for all 1st Graders and Elementary for all 2nd Graders each year, so that all the children will go through both departments.

• Extend the Elementary program to cover a whole year instead of the school year by adding a Review Week every other week, after every 4 lessons, or after memorizing 20 questions.

• Use 1 volume of Kids’ Quest per year, integrating it with ongoing programs in the Christian Education development.

• Use 1 volume each summer until the 3 volumes are completed, and then begin the cycle again.
