Old School is a series that was an incredibly huge win for us.
Goal for this series-try to provide some answers to some basic questions that they might have about the Bible.
1)What is the Bible?
2)How do I use my Bible?
3)How did we get our Bible?
4)What is the Bible about?
5)Why is the Bible Important to me?
6)How do I read my Bible?
We introduced an “Old School” game called Bible Drill. It allows kids to begin to get comfortable with their Bible by searching through it to find books in a race format. I’ll tell you a little secret. by using candy as a prize. This game has become a favorite game for our kids and I’m totally serious, like unbelievably serious.
Anyway another fun element we introduced was something that we called Morning Announcements. We had kids play the role of news anchor and introduce the lesson. We would also have a staffer aka an adult, play a role as a person at the school. Pretty funny. Kids loved them, cool way to introduce some good questions.
Great series. I’ve heard stories of kids reading their Bible, with their journal in tow, answering questions about how the Bible is structured and understanding the role of the Bible in our communication with God.
Big W for us. Great series. That is all.
