Experiential learning in a Small Group/Large Group Rotation Model
It’s highly RELATIONAL. It shifts from Sunday school teachers who try to deliver the entire lesson in classroom teaching style to small group leaders who help kids discover the truth of God’s word.
It uses CREATIVE presentation techniques. When all the kids from the ages grouped together come to watch the Bible event, it might be a story tell presentation, interactive drama, or even video clip. Puppets help set up the lesson.
It is JESUS-CENTERED. All lessons point to the main theme of the Bible: God’s rescue for us through His Son Jesus. The broad biblical scope gives you a balanced 10-year scope and sequence.

This is our version of Sunday school. It feels more like a Vacation Bible School every Sunday. It utilizes hands-on learning aimed at multiple senses and learning styles. In a Grades 5 & 6 Small group. Large Group. Small group. This is similar to Grades 1-4 but uses different presentation techniques in the Large group. Large Group in all these settings refers more to the style of teaching rather than only the size of the group.
Kingdom Quest lessons for 5th and 6th graders are labeled as Quest 56 lessons. Instead of studying through books of the Bible, Quest 56 covers spiritual topics like prayer or life topics like friendship. Students begin with small group activities and discussion that help kids build friendships. Then groups gather together for a large group presentation using a dramatized character and audience participation. You can even download FREE SIGNS for each series. Kids return to their small groups to investigate the Bible and discuss application. This also involves some creative age-appropriate art project, snack, or learning activity.
