We want all of our high school youth to be beautiful portraits of faith in God’s love. But teenagers? They want to express themselves their way. So, let them. Canvas, a collection of five four-week youth studies, is designed to empower students to lead the lessons themselves, which will not only draw students to learn about theological beliefs, foundational concepts, and their own faith, but will give them an opportunity to practice service and teaching others. By working together to learn from history, tradition, and the Bible, students will uncover a portrait of God that will be an inspirational foundation to their own journey. Flexible to use as a continuation of confirmation, a small group resource, or student leadership resource, Canvas will inspire your students to paint the picture of their faith.
Canvas: A Portrait of Humanity
As humans, we understand that we are incredibly complex beings. We’re told in Genesis 2 that God formed us with God’s own hands and breathed the breath of life into our lungs, but we also know that we rebelled against God. In Canvas: A Portrait of Humanity, your students will delve into the myriad complexities of human nature and our relationship to God. Over four weeks, students will unpack what it means for humans to be made in the image of God, how that image has been distorted by our sinful nature, and why God continues to offer us a path back to redemption.
