The Gospel Is Good News…Even in Middle School!

Have you ever asked a middle-school kid you know what’s up with “the gospel”? Can they explain what it is and why it matters to a kid? Or do they suspect that being good, listening to parents, and obeying rules is ultimately what God expects?

Revealing God’s love, forgiveness, and power to change, What’s Up helps fourth through eighth-grade students understand that the gospel is all about God making us into who he meant us to be all along. As they learn how to lean wholly (and happily) on Jesus through these formative years, their lives are changed from the inside out.

The curriculum guides middle-school age students in discovering Jesus through fifteen 90-minute lessons that can be expanded to cover twenty-six weeks. The student guide (sold separately) offers age-appropriate activities, fun illustrations, questions to think about, and personal application activities for home. Teachers will find easy-to understand instructions and notes, helps and directions to make teaching the gospel to children clear and simple in the corresponding teacher guide. What’s Up is easily adapted to a wide variety of group settings, including Sunday school, youth group, Christian school, and homeschool.

  • Practically applies the gospel-centered teaching philosophy outlined in Klumpenhower’s best-selling Show Them Jesus to a middle school context.
  • Intentionally flexibleWhat’s Up can be used with middle-school kids in small groups, Sunday school, or even one-on-one discipleship settings at home or church. Provides 15 90-minute lessons or 26 45-minute lessons.
  • Middle schoolers learn by engaging, so What’s Up keeps kids interacting with the Bible and with one another. 
  • What’s Up is for churched and unchurched kids alike since it allows them to read the stories before guiding them deeper, providing new insights, and driving biblical truth home in personal ways.
