In Encounter Your Middle-schooler will:
When you think of the average middle-schooler, you probably don’t picture a saintly youth who delights in spending time in prayer. Most likely you see an average kid who is into movies, the latest tech, video games, or sports. What are they looking for when they occupy their time with these things? Do they simply desire to be entertained, or are they looking for something deeper: a sense of purpose, belonging, happiness? It could be that middle school kids want what we desire, an encounter with God.
Encounter: Experiencing God in the Everyday is more than a Bible study program. It is a life-changing experience that speaks directly to the hearts and minds of middle school aged kids. Designed specifically for 6th to 8th grades, Encounter uses the color-coded Bible Timeline learning system to reveal the story of our faith and God’s plan for our lives. As your students are drawn into this story they will come to a new and profound understanding of who God is. Most importantly they will see God not as a distant doctrinal concept, but as a loving Father who desires a meaningful and lasting encounter with them.
Encounter: Experiencing God in the Everyday is an eight-part bible study for middle school kids. In this DVD series Mark Hart provides a compelling overview and explanation of the entire biblical story. Each 30-minute video is designed to accompany the lessons in the Encounter Student Workbook and Leader’s Guide.
