Engage preteens in God’s big story

Why choose Connect?

  • It’s not little kid Sunday school

    Bibles, videos, and learner sheets are designed just for tweens, blending solid theology with quirky humor.

  • Bible-centered approach

    Explores major themes in the narrative arc of the Bible—from Creation to New Creation.

  • Leader-friendly tools

    Leader materials prepare leaders to facilitate and know they’ll be successful with this age group.

  • Age-appropriate Bible

    Connect Bibles include lively graphics, colorful maps, historical timelines, and more.

How it works

Lessons follow a three-part sequence: See, Explore, and Make. Each week, tweens focus on a theme by watching a witty video, exploring biblical text, and creating projects ranging from games to art and more.

Printed lesson materials are sold by unit, and you can access leader content with a Sparkhouse Online subscription. Digital lessons are also available.

Connect Bibles

Connect Bibles are the the core of the curriculum and serve as the foundation of every lesson.
