Communicating Rich Passages to 5-8th Graders

One of the greatest struggles I have as a communicator is trying to convey deep, rich Scripture passages to 5-8th graders…

How much can I expect them to understand?

What do 5-8th graders want?

What do 5-8th graders enjoy?

What needs do they have?

I have not been that young in a long time, so my memory is foggy.

And even I could, being a 5- 8th grader has changed since I was one.

Gotta rely on the Holy Spirit and Google I guess.
