The Book – 6 Week Series Getting Preteens Excited About the Bible
Looking for a preteen Bible study or need cool preteen Bible lessons? Want to help preteens to place a high value on knowing and doing what the Bible says? You’ve found it! The Book is a six week preteen series giving preteens an overview of the Bible.
As leaders, we know that the Bible is God’s words to us. We also know it is one of the best ways to draw closer to God. What do your preteens truly know and understand about the Bible? Do they know where it came from, how to navigate through it, and how important it is in every day life?
Preteens often think the Bible is an ancient book that isn’t relevant to their lives. Many believe that it is a list of strict rules to be followed. As they begin to think for themselves, preteens might even question its authenticity. With so many options to fill up free time, like video games, baseball, dancing and other activities – reading the Bible isn’t high on many students’ to-do lists. However, if they really understood what the Bible is all about, preteens would get excited reading, understanding and applying its truths in their lives.
In this 6-week series, preteens will discover that though the Bible was written by over 40 authors of a period of over 1600 years, it is one giant adventure story that God Himself wrote. Preteens will learn that the Bible can be trusted through it’s consistency and historical accuracy. They will uncover how it was actually put together and divided into chapters and verses. Furthermore, students will be challenged to do more than just read it’s pages, but apply it in their lives.
All of this is done through engaging, relevant, hands on, fun activities and creative teaching methods that will get preteens excited about the Bible.
