Lesson 1: Choosing Your Friends

Bible Passages: 2 Corinthians 6:14-15; Proverbs 13:20-21; Luke 15:1-7; 1 Corinthians 15:33

Bottom Line: A real BFF is someone who loves God as much as you do.

What’s That to Me? To preteens, friends are all-important—but even more important than having friends is choosing good friends. For preteens, it can be confusing to know what to look for in a real friend. And as God tells us, it’s important to choose carefully.

Lesson 2: Popularity and Fitting in With the World

Bible Passages: Romans 2:11; Luke 9:25; Proverbs 16:18; Luke 14: 7-14

Bottom Line: A real BFF lives for God, not the world.

What’s That to Me? Preteens often believe that making friends mean they must work to fit in. Popularity lures them into acting differently and doing things they might not otherwise do. It’s important for kids this age to learn that God doesn’t call us to fit in with the general population—he wants us to stand out for him!

Lesson 3: Your Community

Bible Passages: Ecclesiastes 4:9:12; Acts 2:42-47; Hebrews 10:24-25

Bottom Line: A real BFF isn’t just one person; it’s also a community of believers.

What’s That to Me? Preteens may be so focused on having that one BFF that they don’t realize it’s important to surround ourselves with a community of BFFs. Being in a community means we have support, love, and friendship encircling us.

Lesson 4: Friends Help Friends Through Suffering

Bible Passages: 1 Corinthians 15:3; 1 Peter 5:10; Romans 5:3-5; Proverbs 18:24; John 15:13

Bottom Line: A real BFF will suffer with you like Jesus did.

What’s That to Me? This lesson is key to help preteens understand that real friends stick with them when times get hard. They don’t only show up when things are fine. And, real friends are willing to suffer with and for their friends, just as Jesus suffered for us on the cross.

I enjoy purchasing this curriculum for my students. The lessons give me a great base to build from or just use what is there if I am in a pinch. The graphics are top notch and games are provided if that's your ministry model. Always great stuff!!

The outlines, lessons, artwork with these weekly sessions are truly a God send for those of us with full time 'other than ministry' obligations yet wanting more for our students each week. Thank you for such quality products at very affordable costs.

This was our first purchase and I can’t wait to start using this on Sunday mornings! Takes a lot of pressure off of us for prepping each week and it is very spot on for the circumstances we are living through currently. Thanks for the special offer!!
