Note: The lesson plans for Praise Factory Investigators does not specifically talk about splitting up the children into small groups after story time, then bringing the children back together for a Closing Large Group Time of sharing what each group learned. This is how we use the curriculum at CHBC and find it very effective. However, many churches do not use this format and so I chose to make the lesson plans reflect common usage. The activities and the preparation are the same, whichever format you use.

NOTE: At CHBC we combine the games group activities to fit the number of small groups we use. So, you will see the teacher using Story Review questions in their table-time discussion, but Scripture Verse questions and game during the game portion of the small group. Feel free to mix and match use of the curriculum like this and other ways at your own church.
