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 3: Prayer – I can know God by talking to Him. (Luke 5:16, Psalm 145:3, 1 John 1:9, John 15:7, John 15:5)
- 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)
- Verse: “As a deer longs for streams of water. God, I long for you in the same way. I am thirsty for God.” Psalm 42:1-2a, NIRV

We are 3 weeks into this lesson series. The song suggestions are amazing. The lessons are fun and helpful to challenge kids to develop spiritual practices that will provide ways for them to know God more.
