Shaping Hearts for Teens

Shaping Hearts Publications launched its Young Teen Bible Studies in 2011. These studies are written especially for 6th to 8th grade students, but are adaptable to use with other teens. The project includes 12 series to be published covering the entire Bible. Each series includes a Student Workbook, Teacher's Guide, and Extra Stuff.

(Note: Not all twelve series are available at this time. We will add these to the website as soon as they become available.)

  • Perfect for use in a Sunday / Wednesday combination
  • Odd-numbered lessons feature solid Bible study
