This three-session unit from the Connect series for junior high classes helps youth experience the connection between the past and the present. Through some of the stories of Abraham, the youth will see relevant and realistic connections with issues of faith and family in their lives today.
Session 1: Angels, Blessings and Covenants - offers examples of the exciting times and people in the Bible and emphasizes the covenants between God and man.
Session 2: All in the Family - shows the connections between the generations of families and how names and characteristics were passed down -- both in Bible times and today.
Session 3: Father Abraham Had Many Sons (and Daughters) - traces the beginnings of unrest in the Middle East, and in our society or family, to squabbles and tensions that began within families.
