Welcome to Portals Projects! Each week we share projects that foster community building, creative thinking, problem-solving and character development. Invite your student(s) to pick a project that interests them to work on for a day or a week. Encourage them to share their plans, products or performances with the Portals community so we can all celebrate and grow together.

Write and present a proposal for your own Bible club. If you enjoy competition, consider forming a Bible quiz team. If you enjoy acting, form a Bible Story troop and write your own Bible skits to perform.

If you are passionate about sharing God’s word, form a non-profit or partner with an existing ministry that distributes Bibles or works on translating them.
