The Pebbles and Stones Model

Pebbles and Stones brings the Gospel to children and adults through biblical storytelling followed by listening to God's voice, journaling, sharing, and praying, all in a multi-generational approach. Participants grow in their relationship with God as they learn to hear God's voice. They also build relationships by listening to each other and praying for one another. Since God's love is profoundly tangible, participants seek Him to hear how physical, emotional, and spiritual needs can be met.

A twelve year old girl who had been rescued from sex trafficking tangibly experienced God's healing love as she exclaimed, "Not only is God holding me, He is holding my heart."


Although lessons are based on the building blocks and characteristics of the Pebbles and Stones teaching model, teachers are encouraged to seek the Holy Spirit for the Bible story to use and the specific way they develop lessons. By design, the exact wording for each lesson varies from teacher to teacher. The emphasis is always to hear and respond to God's voice.

Building Blocks

Each component is based on a specific learning style. In this way, each participant hears the Biblical narrative through their own unique learning style along with the other learning styles.

 Praise and Worship
 Introductory Question
 Biblical Story/Narrative
 Listening to God all Week Long

Key Characteristics

Each characteristic is skillfully woven into each meeting so that each participant can grow in their relationship with God and with others through which they can experience the Kingdom of God.

 Teaching flexible lessons
 Singing familiar and "new" songs
 Brining generations together

Building Community

Pebbles and Stones groups meet any and every place generations gather: homes, schools, churches, beneath trees, in huts, open fields, etc. They worship God, share His Word, spend time listening for His voice, pray for one another, and see how they can meet each others needs. Through this process community, personal growth, and intimacy with God and one another is felt in profoundly tangible ways.

"Teaching children 
to talk with God 
creates a safe environment 
where the Father 
can reveal truth
to them."
