To preteens, life can feel full of huge problems. But when they see things from the perspective that no matter what, there’s always a choice, problems don’t seem so overwhelming.
Preteens will discover that it’s often better to face a small problem with God’s help than to have to deal with one that’s grown out of control. They will also discover that they can trust that God puts people in our lives who can and want to help us tackle our problems.
Each week will feature a fun and different variation of the game - dodgeball!

Week 1:  Choices for Every Problem

Bottom Line: All problems come with choices. When we figure out those choices, we can overcome challenging problems.

Bible:  Genesis 39:2-6; Genesis 39:12; Genesis 39:21-23; Genesis 45:1-15; James 1:5

Week 2:  When Problems Grow

Bottom Line: Overcoming problems is easier when we face small problems before they turn into big ones.

Bible: Jonah 1; Jonah 2:1-2,10; Exodus 4; Psalm 50:15

Week 3: Problem-Solving Pals

Bottom Line: We all need the help of others to overcome problems.

Bible: Exodus 18:24-26; Proverbs 25:19; Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 (NLT)

Week 4: God Is Greater

Bottom Line: We can bring our problems to God in prayer because He cares.

Bible: Nehemiah 4, 5, 6; 1 Peter 5:7; Philippians 4:6


Preteens experience temptation throughout the day, everyday. They can resist it when they recognize what it is and know that God will help them resist the things that tempt them. If they remember that God is willing to walk alongside them through temptation, they’ll feel more equipped to resist it.

Preteens know what it feels like to be tempted, but they may wonder if God really understands. But when they realize Jesus experienced it too, kids know they can trust God for help.

Preteens face long odds when it comes to beating temptation. We all do. But when they learn that God already knows we’ll mess up—and He loves us anyway—they’ll feel a life-changing power shift. 

Week 1: How and Why Are We Tempted?

Bible Passages: James 1:13-18; 1 Corinthians 10:12; James 4:7

Bottom Line: Temptation is real and everywhere, BUT it is possible to resist it.

Week 2: Dealing With Overwhelming Temptations

Bible Passages: Matthew 11:28-30, Luke 22:40, Ephesians 6:10-18

Bottom Line: The battle with temptation is overwhelming and only with God can we win the battle.

Week 3: Can God Really Understand Temptation?

Bible Verses: 1 Corinthians 10:13, Matthew 4:1-11, Hebrews 2:18

Bottom Line: Because Jesus was tempted and resisted; he shows the way to resist temptation.

Week 4: God Forgives Us When We Mess Up

Bible Verses: Matthew 26:41; Romans 3:23; Romans 3:24-26; Luke 10:19

Bottom Line: God knows we are going to mess up and loves us anyway! 


Every preteen is searching for identity. Many will look to their peers or pop culture to define who they are, but that never leads us to our true identity. Preteens need to be reminded that they are created in the image of God, loved and valued by God, and given a new identity through faith in Christ.
This series is designed to help preteens value how God has uniquely and wonderfully made them, how God wants to give them a new identity through Jesus, and how He has called us to show our new identity through a life of love. Knowing our true identity helps us to confidently face the trials and pressures of life.
Week 1: Made in His Image
Main Point: You are uniquely and wonderfully made by the Creator
Bible Passage: Psalm 139:13-17
Week 2: Loved & Valued
Main Point: You are more loved and valued than you can imagine
Bible Passage: 1 Peter 2:24, Romans 5:8, John 3:16, John 10:27-30
Week 3: ID in JC (or New Identity)
Main Point: My identity is based on who God says I am, not what the world says
Bible Passage: 2 Corinthians 5:17, Acts 9, Galatians 5:22-23
Week 4: Let’s See Some ID
Main Point: The world will know my new identity by the way I love my neighbor
Bible Passage: John 13:34-35, Colossians 3:12-17, Galatians 5:13-14
