Flyte: Faith. Life. Together
For the next four weeks, our preteens will be using the LifeWay FLYTE curriculum to learn what the Bible says about families. We firmly believe in supporting the role of a parent, and this unit would be a great opportunity for discussions with your preteen about the unique and special calling God has for your family.
The Bible study focus for this unit is the story of Joseph, a familiar story to many preteens. During this unit, they will be digging past the surface facts of the story to take an in-depth look at Joseph’s family dynamics. Preteens will analyze the factors that caused problems in his family, identify the ways Joseph handled those challenges according to God’s plan, and learn to apply those strategies in their own families. Specifically, preteens will study the following:
2.4: What Is a Perfect Family?
Bible passage: Genesis 37:1-11
2.11: Is My Family Broken?
Bible passage: Genesis 37:12-36
2.18: Is There Hope for My Family?
Bible passage: Genesis 40-45
2.25: How Can My Family Work Together?
Bible passage: Genesis 50:15-21
The memory passage for this unit is Psalm 133:1: “How good and pleasant it is when brothers live together in harmony!” Over the next four weeks, encourage your preteen to share what he or she has learned about harmony within families. Initiate honest conversations about the strengths and weaknesses in your own family, and be open to your preteen’s insight.
We hope this unit is one that will benefit the whole family. Please contact us if you would like additional help or resources for special challenges your family is facing or ways strengthen your family bonds.
