Here’s why you'll love Grapple:

Grapple is created around questions from real preteen kids. Every lesson is relevant!

Educationally Sound

Grapple Preteen lessons are built around a large-group time that intentionally creates cognitive dissonance. Creative activities get kids curious about the questions. Then in small group time, kids dive into the Word of God to discover smart answers to their deepest questions.

It Works!

Preteens have spent years in your ministry. Do they OWN their faith – or are they just able to spout the “right answer”? Grapple gives kids a faith they own!
