Courage is being brave enough to do what you should do, even when you’re afraid. WEEK 1 Key Question: What do you worry about? We wanted to start the month on courage helping preteens think about the times they feel scared or anxious.

Life Apps are what God is doing in you to change the world around you. WEEK 1 Key Question: How can you love others like God does? That’s a big question! As preteens start to engage more with pop culture, they’ll start to hear many voices talk about what it means to love. But we want them to take their cue from how God loves us. We hope preteens will discover how they can show God’s love to the people in their lives. We start the month in 1 Corinthians 13:4-8a. The Apostle Paul wrote a letter... Read More
