How it works

Each week rotate between the eight workshops:

  • Art – kids create individual or group projects to reinforce the Bible story
  • Bible Skills and Games – get kids into their Bibles with friendly competition
  • Cooking – an easy-to-prepare snack based on the theme of the Bible story
  • Creative Drama – kids dramatize the story in a variety of ways
  • Digital Media and Technology – uses a variety of technology—phones, cameras, and more—as a way for kids to connect the Bible stories with their everyday lives
  • Music – kids engage with the story through music and movement
  • Science – kids do hands-on, sensory-based experiments
  • Video – kids watch movie clips to help relate the Bible story themes to their own lives

Preschoolers experience an in-room rotation with Art, Game, Music, Snack, and Storytelling stations.

Spark Rotation also includes an ‘All Kids’ option, making it easy for smaller congregations or churches who prefer a one-room Sunday school program format.

“We used the rotation to get families excited about coming to church in the summer! Parents loved the take home pages and kids loved the excitement of a different way to encounter the story each week.”
