This week, we’re continuing with our Catechism questions using the Kid Quest curriculum.  The questions we use are based on the Catechism for Boys and Girls, but I’m finding that a few of the answers (and even the questions at times!) are a bit too cumbersome for the kids.  We’ve made some adaptations.  The reason we began using the Catechism in our church is to:

  1. Teach the kids the basics of Christianity
  2. Give them a clear and concise way to share their faith with others

I feel these adaptations will better meet our goals as well as stay true to the original intent of the catechism.

Making Some Changes

Here are some of the adaptations we’ll be making:

Q14: Where do you learn how to love and obey God
A: In the Bible.
Q15: Who wrote the Bible?
A: God told chosen men what to write.
Q16: Who were the first people?
A: Adam and Eve
Q17: How did God create the first people?
A: God created people in his image out of dust.
Q18: Combined w/ Q17
Q19: What did God give Adam and Eve?
A: He gave them a body and a soul
Q20: Do you have a soul?
A: Yes, and my soul will last forever.
Q21: SKIP
Q22: Describe Adam and Eve at the beginning of time.
A: God made them holy and happy.
Q23: What promise did God make Adam?
A: If he obeyed God, he would live forever.
Q24-27 SKIP
Q28: Did Adam obey God fully?
A: No, he sinned against God and was punished with death.

Focusing on the Bible

This week, we’re again focusing in on the Bible with Questions #14 and #15.  In our own midweek kids program, I’m encouraging small group leaders to help kids memorize one of the three verses during the month of September:

  • Psalm 119:17b (I will obey your Word)
  • 2 Timothy 3:16 (All Scripture is God-breathed…)
  • Psalm 119:105 (Your word is a lamp to my feet

Following God’s Path

This week, we’ll be using the theme “Following God’s Path” to review what we’ve learned so far about the Bible.  We’ll decorate the gym with footprints and use hiking through the woods as an illustration for the importance of staying on the right path.  If we have time, we might play a few rounds of the “Minefield Game” to give kids a hands-on way to remember the importance of staying on the right path.

Activities and Projects for “God’s Path” Theme

Bible Basics Activities and Projects

Take a look at these suggestions for kid’s activities focused on God’s Word.  You can also look at the Who Wrote the Bible lesson for more ideas.

 

Songs to Sing

  • All Scripture (2 Timothy) by JumpStart3
  • I Love My BIBLE by Kids on the Move
  • Books of the Bible by North Point Kids
  • One Way, Jesus by Uncle Charlie

 

That’s it for now!
