We will be implementing the Konnect curriculum in August. We are wondering what creative ways are being used to manage Challenge Card points. Is there a good way to have them submitted electronically using an app? Is it possible to share the "Medal" from the Konnect Bible Plans when they finish it? Open to any ideas . . .and go!
@Kim_Cheves those are all GREAT ideas! At our church we track points through a Google spreadsheet so that it can be accessed from multiple locations. We access it from a laptop most often.
I am not aware of any resources that would allow you to track it through an app but here's another thread about using a program called Bible Bucks: https://open.life.church/community/t/using-bible-bucks-2-0-for-rewards-system/11965
I love the idea of sharing medals in YouVersion! You could have them share it with you or another leader in your church, I think they would have to be connected with you in YouVersion.
Thank you! We are looking forward to all the amazing things God has in store for the kids! We appreciate Life Church making the resources and curriculum available. It's a great fit for our church. In the past I stopped the reward program we were using because it seemed like the kids got prizes too easily and it didn't have a purpose beyond Sunday morning. I love that this empowers the parents to lead their family in guiding hearts toward God. That is worth celebrating!
This doesn't perfectly answer your question, but Instead of a store, we do special quarterly outings. We are still tweaking it, but essentially they are invited if they earn over 150,000 points. They get 100,000 if they bring a friend.
Thank you! I like that idea. It gives them something to look forward to and set a reachable goal to accomplish in a relatively short time frame.
What a great idea @Christa_Setzer! I love that you are encouraging them towards a specific goal.
