Youth Studies for Preteens

Preteen. Tween. Middle Schooler.

No matter what you call this age group, it's clear that they are "in between." Because of this, they can also be a difficult age group to reach out to in the church setting. They can't quite participate in many difficult discussions, but they're well beyond finger painting.

We've combed through our list of youth studies and chosen ones with topics and activities appropriate for this age group. Be sure to look through the teaching alternatives to find additional activities that may be more suitable for your group. If you have any study topics you would like to suggest for youth (both middle and high school), e-mail us at
