Have you ever wanted to help kids know God deeper? What if you could give kids practical, hands-on ways to grow in their faith and deepen their relationship with God? What if kids had the opportunity to understand and practice spiritual disciplines at a young age, so as they grow and mature, these became life-giving daily practices helping them be deeply devoted followers of Jesus? Let’s help kids KNOW GOD!
Know God Inward is a 5-week series for elementary-age kids, focused on the inward spiritual disciplines (or as we will call them – holy practices or habits) of meditation, fasting, prayer, and study.
- Week 1: Series Introduction – How Can I Know God? (Matthew 22:30-40)
- Week 2: Meditation – I can know God by focusing on Him. (Psalm 119:97, Psalm 63:6)

- Week 4: Fasting – I can know God by denying myself. (Deuteronomy 9:9-10, Luke 4:2-3)
- Week 5: Study – I can know God by studying His Word. (2 Timothy 3:15, Matthew 19:13-15)
