The Connect 4 Week Teaching series will help children aged 5-11 explore how they think, feel and act towards God and others in their lives. It’s a chance to deep dive into their relationships and think about how they can make the most of them. This series is taught in a biblical, relevant, relational, interactive and fun way to help kids grasp each lesson theme. Helping children to see that their world encompasses different people and settings that they connect with enables them to think clearly about who, how and why they are connecting in certain ways.
