What is J-Quest?
J-Quest is a new approach to Sunday School. It is a rotation workshop model which gives Elementary children the opportunity to learn in different styles and a variety of settings. J-Quest is at both 9:30 am and 11:00 am.
Why teach this way?
The more different ways children explore a story, the more it is reinforced in their memories.
How are the stories taught?
In rotational learning, the same Bible story or theme is taught for five weeks in five different stations. Each week, children “rotate” to a different station. The story remains the same, but children learn it in different ways. Then the next five-week lesson, the children will rotate to the next five stations.
What are the stations?
The ten different rotations stations for children are:
Science Lab; Computer Lab; Creative Arts; Sound Stage; Biblical Games; Movie Theater; Storytelling; Missions; Creative Cookery; J-Quest Specials
