Book of Proverbs
A Bible Study Series for Preteens
The Book of Proverbs is an 8 week series on how to be wise.
When preteens think of “wisdom”, the image of an old man with glasses and a mustache might pop in their heads.
It’s easy for them to miss the fact that “wisdom” is simply understanding how God wants them to live and then doing it.
Preteens need to know that being wise is something worth searching for.
Wisdom is attainable.
Why is wisdom important to preteens? Because they’re…
- Taking the first steps to owning their relationship with God.
- Placing relationships with peers a high priority and need help navigating those friendships.
- Making lifestyle choices now that will affect them in the teenage years and beyond.
- Still moldable and teachable.
If you’ve been around preteens for any amount of time…you know they could use some more wisdom
The good news is that God gives us a “how to” manuel on wisdom in the book of Proverbs.
That’s why we created The Book of Proverbs series – to help preteens discover “how to be wise”.
