Connect: Becky and Todd's Bible Adventures
The Connect series is specifically designed for kids ages 9-12 and help preteens discover how the Bible relates to their own lives. Connect follows a plucky middle school theater group that aspires to stage every book of the Bible. The kids are pretty sure they have a clear understanding of everything that happens in God's Big Story. Well most of it. They do have a few questions, concerns, and outright misconceptions. Fortunately, an ever-expanding cast of surprising and often bizarre visitors is on hand to help them navigate their journey through the Scriptures. And yes, there is a talking tube sock.
Becky and Todd know that “God’s Big Story” starts with the Creation of everything, the Fall of Creation, and how humans can repair the relationship with God. But an evil sock bent on world domination thinks it’s already too late. Can Becky’s goldfish help clear matters up?
Kings & Prophets
To help supervise their productions, the kids get guidance from three guest directors with three very different styles of leadership. Eventually, Becky aims to being a leader, which means she might also have to “tell it like it is.”

Mistaken scripts, too many disciples, unrelated tales (or are they?), a new history teacher and standardized testing! If only there was a way to ease everyone's suffering…
Jesus: The Savior
Joey takes an active role, and later takes the blame. Boman’s behind the betrayal. Becky and Todd discover their production of “Jesus’ Death” turns out to be a little…sad. Who’d a thought things would turn out this way?
Saul (before Paul) and Janitor Jerry seem to have something in common. If we have grace, why do we still need a bunch of rules? Bus-Bot breaks down, stranding the kids on the side of the road. With no AC, no electronic devices, and no snacks, the kids have to wonder: why are they forced to suffer?
It’s the biggest event in ages–a giant outdoor concert! But will the Holy Spirit show up? If not for Todd’s toe, the rest of his body might not have figured out a cure for his hunger. Among religious persecution and potential exclusion, new disasters keep popping up to thwart the kids’ theater ...
