Whether it's the fun puppets, the exciting games or all their "Cubbies friends," they simply love it.

• explore the biographies of people of the Bible from a new portion of Scripture

T&T engages third- through sixth-graders by answering their questions about God and the Bible, guiding them through this pivotal life stage to grow in Christ's grace.

•T&T Ultimate Adventure™ for third and fourth grades

•T&T Ultimate Challenge™ for fifth and sixth grades
