What you will need

To get the most out of QKids online, we invite you to gather the following. Their use will be integrated into the service.

BIBLE

We recommend the NIrV (New International Reader’s Version) for it’s easy-to-read nature. You may use a Bible app, or request from us a loner NIrV Bible.

Other recommended translations: CEV, NLT, NIV.

For families with preschoolers we will provide an option to read from the Jesus Storybook Bible.

We highly recommend avoiding translations that have more difficult language for children (e.g., ESV, KJV, NASB, NRSV).

REQUEST A BIBLE

JOURNAL

We recommend each child have some sort of blank notebook they can add entries to every week which is only theirs for that purpose. This allows your child to be able to flip back and see how they have connected to Jesus in the past.

We do have journals to provide to you by request.

It is also acceptable to just use a blank piece of paper.

REQUEST A JOURNAL

WRITING/DRAWING TOOLS

Every week there will be a writing and a drawing prompt which the children may choose. Gather the writing or drawing tools that your children are likely to use (e.g., markers, crayons, pens, pencils, etc.).

Parents are invited too!

You are the primary influence in the faith life of your child!

As the primary influencer of your children you have a unique and critical role in the faith development of your child. It is certainly not strictly necessary for you to join your children for QKids online, we believe your co-participation will empower your role as a faith-developer of your child.

Format

What you can expect during our QKids service.

1. INTRODUCTION

We will provide time for kids to gather their Bibles and journals, introduce the story, and repeat the Big Picture Question for the unit. The Big Picture Question helps reinforce basic Bible knowledge over several lessons.

2. STORY

We will begin story time by showing the Bible story video from our curriculum, the Gospel Project.

After, we will break to allow families to read the story directly from their Bibles. We encourage the whole family to read the Bible together, perhaps by taking turns. We invite parents to allow opportunity for their children to read so that they can get comfortable reading the Bible for themselves.

3. SUMMARY

We return from the Bible reading break to summarize the story and recite our memory verse together.

4. RESPONSE

Kids will be invited to spend individual time with  Jesus by writing or drawing in their journals. Each week there will be a prompt that pertains to the lesson.

We will invite the kids to understand that the awesome thing about Jesus is we can speak to him and he can speak to us through what we draw or what we write. We do this through the Holy Sprit. We therefore expect for this time to be silent so they can speak to and hear from Jesus. We make an exception for preschoolers who we expect will do their journaling vocally with their parents.

Circle Time!

After the service, we will join together for “circle time” over Zoom

This will allow the kids an opportunity to connect with and pray for one another. Parents are more than welcome to join in. Zoom links will be emailed directly to parents.
