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 God
From beginning to end, the Bible is the story of God. It tells us who God is, and how we should relate to this all-powerful cosmic deity. Theology is no different. The very word translates as “the study of God.” In Canvas: A Portrait of God, your students will begin an adventure to encounter God and learn more about who God is and how God has been revealed both in the Bible and throughout history. Over four weeks, students will read through the Psalms, unpack the essence of the Trinity, and learn how we can talk about the God who created the universe and who loves us more deeply than we can imagine.
