Teacher Training Video – Application Time

The application time is when the kids make the connection between God’s Word and their own lives. Your job is to connect Bible truth to a child’s life. Application time is for helping children to bridge the gap between Biblical knowledge and heart transformation.

During application time, the small group leader needs to first figure out if their students understood the main point of the lesson.
