Jesus: The Real Life (6 Week Series) - Want preteens to experience Jesus? When preteens hear the name “Jesus”, it can sound the same as “Santa Claus” or “Peter Pan”.
Jesus can become, in their mind, a distant CHARACTER from a dusty old book. Instead, we desire for preteens to know Jesus as the real, living, breathing God in flesh.
Through this series, your preteens will come face to face with the REAL Jesus.
In “Jesus: The Real Life” series, preteens will:
Get to know Jesus’ status as 100% man and 100% God.
Realize that Jesus was once a preteen just like them.
Meet Jesus as an amazing teacher and story teller.
Encounter Jesus, the real life miracle worker.
And hopefully, through this series, Jesus will become as real and precious to them as the air that they are breathing.
