Lead. Discuss. Engage.
Encounter Sunday school curriculum is a bible-based, culturally relevant, and personally challenging Sunday school curriculum for junior high and high school teens. Every week, Encounter challenges students with an engaging Bible study that helps them understand God, the bible, Christian doctrine, or a biblical worldview. Students experience God actively in a way that relates to their age-group, lifestyle and how they communicate. They encounter God and are challenged to deepen their faith through creative applications including drama, art, games, small group discussions, research or journalistic reporting.

How It Works
Each week's lesson follows four easy steps:
- Setting the Stage - students define the week's topic
- Searching the Word - students get into the Bible
- Making it Real - students learn how the topic applies to their world
- Living it Out - students apply the week's topic to their personal lives
