Obedience is trusting who’s in charge by doing what you’re asked to do. WEEK 1 Key Question: Why is the Bible important? Maybe they’ve seen the Bible sitting on a shelf at home. Maybe they have one of their own. Or maybe they have no idea what a Bible is. Preteens are all over the map when it comes to understanding why they should take the time to dig into the Bible. As we kick off a school year of going through the Bible, we’re starting with a key question to help them realize how the Bible... Read More

PERSEVERANCE IS A RESPONSE OF THE CHARACTER OF GOD. WEEK 1 We start the month in Matthew 28:16-20 and Acts 1-2 as we listen in on the last conversation Jesus had with His disciples before going back to heaven. He gave them a huge mission—to share His message to ends of the earth. He also promised that they wouldn’t have to do it alone. He would send the Holy Spirit to help.

HOPE IS A RESPONSE OF THE CHARACTER OF GOD . WEEK 1 We start the month with friends of Jesus who had lost all hope. John records an incredible moment that we find in John 11:1-45. When Lazarus died, Jesus used the opportunity to point people to God. Jesus was stronger than even death itself and raised Lazarus back to life four days after he had died. Bottom Line: Whatever happens, remember how powerful God is. God can do amazing things in your life. We pray that kids will understand that when... Read More
