The Explore series is small group discipleship studies for preteens. Explore intentionally develops the spiritual formation of children aged 10-12 leading them from salvation to church membership and maturity in their walk of faith. They discuss the basic concepts of God, Sin and Salvation, discover their spiritual gifts, and develop their service to God inside and outside the church building. The series includes eight sets of student books each containing six weeks of lessons plus a celebration event for an additional week, totaling 48 weeks of content. The celebrations include baptism, student membership, student leadership, and a mission experience. One Leader's Guide corresponds with two Student Books, meaning one Leader's Guide contains 12 weeks of lessons and the additional celebration event.
This Explore Leader's Guide is the thrid in the series, to be used with student books Investigate God's Word for Yourself (Book 5) and Link Your Life to God (Book 6).
Preteens (ages 10 to 12) are at a critical time of transition and spiritual formation. Not quite teens, but no longer children, they require focused attention to help them grow and mature through this difficult and confusing time. Explore, a discipleship series for preteens, will help you lead preteens from salvation to church membership, from serving within the church to serving outside its walls. The series includes eight student books, each containing six weeks of lessons, for a total of forty-eight weeks of material. Each set of six lessons culminates in a celebration event. This Leader's Guide contains the material you need to lead small group or individual discipleship lessons based on student books five and six.
