The Action Bible Curriculum
Get ready to take action with preteens!
Based on the best-selling Action Bible ®, this quarterly curriculum challenges preteens to take the leap from Bible information to life transformation. The Action Bible Curriculum is designed especially for preteens ages 9–12 (grades 4, 5, 6) with the understanding that they are seeking spiritual answers and developing their own value system. Preteens will explore Scripture, ask questions, memorize key verses, build relationships, and connect timeless truth to their life today.
The Action Bible Curriculum uses a 4-step lesson path designed to engage preteens at every turn. Additional features include:
- Flexible format (Classroom or Large Group/Small Group)
- 2-year scope and sequence through the Old and New Testaments—each year is chronological
- 60–90 minutes per lesson
Through daily devotions in the Student Book, preteens continue to engage with God during the week. Easy-to-use Action Bible Curriculum Student Books include:
· Bible Study Sheets for preteens to get their thoughts and ideas down,
· My Response page that invites them to engage with what they have experienced,
· and a Weekly Resource that is a daily devotional and includes a section for parents with a recap of what their teens learned that week.
In the Leader Guides, each lesson begins with a teacher prep devotion for leaders and a lesson overview (minimal supplies needed). Lessons also include pre-session option, suggested script text, including the content from the Bible study sheet and suggested answers, along with statements to transition from one section to the next.
Also available are Scripture Memory Cards featuring weekly memory verses from The Action Bible Curriculum, available in the various translations: ESV, NIV, or CSB. Packs include 65 cards, for each of the 13 weekly verses (5 cards each).
