Students who've experienced the Bible's great truths, not just read about them, can walk through their lives with a firm foundation under their feet. They know what they believe and why, and they feel a lot more comfortable in situations that are challenging to their faith.
This collection of lessons covering the most important truths in the Bible gives you an easy-to-use resource that will plunge your teenagers into the beautiful basics: the reality of God in the world, the truth about who Jesus really is, and why all of us need a "Good Shepherd" to find us and reclaim us...13 powerhouse lessons in all. And because they're created by the editors of Group/Simply Youth Ministry, every lesson uses the R.E.A.L. learning approach--Relational, Experiential, Applicable, and Learner-based. This approach is not only easy to lead, but also guarantees that your students will engage with these great truths. They'll learn how to live out their relationship with Jesus in their everyday lives as they wrestle with issues that really matter...
- Why bad things happen to good people, and how Jesus brings beauty out of ugly;
- What it means to "grow into" Jesus--living and loving others the way he does; and
- Learning how to depend upon the Holy Spirit in life.
No matter what the life issue, the Bible offers foundational truths that can help your students live more confidently with a deeper ongoing connection to Jesus. And our concise instructions and easy-to-use reproducible handouts make your job easy.
Use these lessons as "spice" in between a teaching series, or build a series around them. Also, they're easily adapted for a confirmation setting, a "new believers" class, a "grow-deep" discipleship group, or even Sunday school.
