Curriculum Review - Non-Traditional PreTeen - SuperStart from Christ in Youth and Standard Publishing!

SuperStart is a Non-Traditional Sunday School curriculum especially for Preteens from Christ in Youth and Standard Publishing! SuperStart is designed to help preteens, "get a super start living the rest of their lives for Jesus." Allow me to share with you some information about SuperStart!

SuperStart is written as a Large Group/Small Group curriculum, but since it is just for preteens and an average size church wouldn't have more than one classroom of this age level, I'm including it in my Non-Traditional Curriculum reviews. If you have a large group, certainly use it as a large group/small group resource, but with the average size class you are likely to use it in a classroom-type setting. If you are looking for a creative curriculum with a focus on intentionally engaging preteens, this curriculum is well worth taking a look at to see if it may be a good "fit" for your ministry! Christ in Youth and Standard Publishing says, "SuperStart! is a Preteen Curriculum designed to deliver life-changing ministry by using excitement fun and true-to-life lessons so preteens can live out what they study. Preteens will be challenged to go deep in God's Word and to develop lasting, meaningful relationships!"
