About the Children's Sunday School Program

What’s happening in the Children’s Ministry?

Kids’ Quest Children’s Ministry uses lessons in the workshop rotation model , incorporating storytelling, drama, crafts, games, science exploration, and cooking to present multi-learning-style bible lessons.

Kids’ Quest uses VBS style “One Point Learning” every Sunday,
stuffing a number of bible points into a short lesson usually results in limited retention and low impact on children’s hearts and lives. Each Kids’ Quest lesson focuses on one life –applicable Bible Point and uses a variety of engaging activities to reinforce that message.

Faith Building tools go home with each unit... sparking conversation between parent & child
Sometimes the tools are a projects made by the children. Sometimes they are simple objects such as a rock or a feather. These tools serve an important function in attaching a visual and tactile reminder of the point of the lesson. Jesus often used everyday objects (sheep, stones, and fish) to teach about God and God’s Kingdom.

Start the Quest at home!

The Webster UCC Childrens Ministry partners with families to help children become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ through prayer, service, worship, Bible study and fellowship.

The "Weekly Challenge" and the Family "Tool Box" equip families to nurture their child's faith at home. Families receive "tools" with each unit that will spark meaningful conversation and activities at home, reinforcing what they "dig up" at Kids' Quest.

Try these simple faith building activities at home!
