Home > Encounter: The Bible Timeline for Middle School

A Middle School Bible Study

Encounter is a Catholic Bible study designed specifically for grades 6 to 8. Using the color-coded Bible Timeline Learning System, each session of Encounter reveals the story of our faith and God’s plan for our lives. This captivating program guides students toward a powerful encounter with God.

Encounter is much more than your average Bible study program. It is a life-changing experience that speaks directly to the hearts and minds of middle school-aged kids. As your students are drawn into this story, they will come to a new and profound understanding of who God is. Most importantly, they will come to know God not as a distant doctrinal concept, but as a loving Father who desires a meaningful and lasting encounter with them.
